Ghana Coach Kwesi Appiah has advised Egypt not to be over-dependent on star man Mohamed Salah,
Salah is expected to lead Egypt at next year’s FIFA World Cup in Russia.
The Liverpool talisman was the main figure for Egypt during the FIFA World Cup qualifiers where he bagged six goals to ensure his side qualified for the World Cup for the first time in 28 years.
Kwesi Appiah is urging the North African not to depend on the former AS Roma star at next year’s mundial.
“We played Egypt but as I said, all the time all their attacking machinery is dependent on one player. This is not the best because once he is closed down, then this becomes a problem,” Appiah told Kwese Free Sports.
“If they can work on some stuff and get two or three players that are playing at the highest level, then automatically team’s won’t plan only against Salah but for others as well.”
Salah, 25, is enjoying the best moment in his career having scored 19 goals for Liverpool so far.
He is expected to win the Aiteo CAF player of the year award having been named the BBC Africa player of the year.
The attacker made a move from AS Roma to Liverpool in the summer transfer window and has been the star for the English Premier League side so far this season winning the player of the month on three occasions at the Club.
Reports indicate Spanish giants Real Madrid are already seeking to sign him from Liverpool however the Reds will be reluctant to release their key asset after just few months with the Club.
The former Chelsea player has scored 32 goals in 56 appearances for the Egyptian National team.
