  • 39;World class' Salah threatens Ronaldo Messi grip on Ballon d'Or

He also led Egypt to the World Cup finals by converting a last-minute penalty against DR Congo in a crucial World Cup qualifier, enhancing his cult status at home.

Salah is now just one goal behind Lionel Messi in the race for the Golden Boot and is preparing for Liverpool's Champions League semi-final second leg against Roma on Wednesday.

The plane is being provided by official sponsor "WE", but Salah already has an individual sponsorship deal with rival telecommunications company Vodafone.

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

Youth and Sports Minister Khaled Abd Elaziz reached an agreement with EFA president Hany Abou Reida to resolve all the problems concerning Salah.

The 25-year-old Salah, who is an iconic figure in Egypt, has fallen out with the country's football association over what his agent believes is the exploitation of his image rights by football authorities, according to official Ahram Online news website.

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

"Especially since Egypt is going to participate in the 2018 World Cup", Elaziz tweeted hours after Salah's.

"Mohamed Salah is an example for Egypt's youth who love and are loyal to their homeland and he is representing his country overseas in the best image". "Nothing! Complete silence!" he said in his own tweet on Saturday.

Salah's tweet went viral on social media and Egyptian fans launched a twitter hashtag, #Support_Mohamed_Salah to show solidarity with their beloved player.

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.

Egypt qualified for the first time in 28 years for the World Cup and will be competing in group A with hosts Russia, Saudi Arabia and Uruguay at the tournament.
