Notably, Salah had also won the Reds' Goal of the Month last week with his stoppage-time strike against Manchester United at Anfield.

In terms thereof, Federation Internationale de Football Association confirmed that its member clubs are obligated to release U23 players for the tournament, despite the Games falling outside the global calendar, but added that there is no such obligation on overage players.

"I scored a goal against Man United after two years, so that was my favourite moment", said the Egyptian striker.

Some Reds supporters think it would be best if their club offloaded the 27-year-old and replaced him with Borussia Dortmund starlet Jadon Sancho.

"Liverpool should sell @MoSalah if he agrees to go to the Olympics and use the money to sign @Sanchooo10 Sancho!" one fan tweeted.

"Klopp isn't the just one that will certainly desire him there".

"Peak value for the player and those 2 generational talents need snapping up".

"Salah's participation with the Pharaohs team is a decision to be taken only by Salah, his club Liverpool and his coach Jurgen Klopp".

Cape Town - Egypt under-23 coach Shawky Gharib intends to include Mohamed Salah in the squad for the upcoming Olympics to take place in Tokyo, Japan.

"We can not force Salah to participate with us because Federation Internationale de Football Association regulations do not force him to participate".

Egypt's Under-23 team coach Shawky Gharib intends to include Salah as one of the three major players on the team, but admits he can not force him to accept a call to the national team.

In response to Salah's inclusion in the squad, the player's agent Ramy Abbas posted on Twitter that "no decision has been made yet" and Gharib said that view was correct.

Gharib wants to include Salah in a preliminary 50-man squad, which will be whittled down to 18 in June.
