Mohamed Salah seems to be in a collision path with the Egyptian FA once again after it emerged that the country’s votes for FIFA’s player of the year awards were invalid, which affected the striker's general tally.
Salah finished fourth in the overall winners' list behind eventual winner Lionel Messi, Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk and Cristiano Ronaldo.
This was not the first time Salah has clashed with the federation, having in the past 'fought' over image rights.
In the wake of the happenings, Salah took to his social media to hit back at the federation, saying; "Whatever they try to change my love Leaky and people do not know,"

According to FIFA, the Egyptian FA submitted their votes in capital letters, despite reminds to ensure they were in the expected format.
The federation allows national team coaches and captains of countries affiliated to FIFA and one journalist from every country to vote for their favourite players.
Salah had an astonishing campaign last season, guiding Liverpool to the Champions League glory and coming to within a touching distance of the English Premier League.
