A report claims that the FA are deliberating whether to charge Mohamed Salah with violent conduct for an incident that occurred during Liverpool's stalemate with Stoke.

The dispute erupts two months before Egypt open their World Cup campaign with a match against Uruguay, ending their 28-year wait for a place in the world's most prestigious football tournament.

The Egyptian soccer star is furious his image features prominently on the outside of the national team's official plane, which was provided by official sponsor WE.

Finally, the issue seems to be in its way to be solved after Salah has posted on his account on Twitter his thanks to all the people who supported him on Sunday.

'We were promised a solution and God willing the issue is on its way to being resolved'.

Salah tweeted in Arabic: "Sorry but this is a major insult ..."

Salah had signalled his growing frustration earlier on Sunday by tweeting "unfortunately the way it is being dealt with is very insulting".

Salah's agent, Remy Abbas, also weighed in on the situation. "Complete silence! What's the plan?!"

The EFA previously revealed the letter sent to Ramy Abbas, on April 2, in response to the use of Salah's image in commercials without permission. "Mohamed Salah is an idol for Egyptian youth, loving and loyal to his homeland and represents his country in Europe in the best way".

The public is siding with their Liverpool hero and on social media Salah's tweet went viral, followed by a Twitter hashtag #Support_Mohamed_Salah.

The Sun is reporting that the Reds are set to open talks with the Egypt worldwide about a new deal at Anfield following his sparkling debut campaign at the Merseyside club. "The problem between Salah and the sponsorship company must be handled with great intelligence and must meticulously follow the law", said Mido.
