Egypt and Liverpool player Mohamed Salah is the most followed African football player on social media platforms. He has a growing social media influence over the past year, which led him to overtake the title of the continent’s most-followed footballer on social media from Didier Drogba.
However, the Egyptian star has shut down this Wednesday morning 23rd January 2019, his official accounts on social media, website, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
Mohamed Salah’s Tweet
The move comes after he wrote an ambiguous message Tuesday on his official Twitter, the tweet reads 1: “2019 Resolution: Time to get in touch, for real.”
The tweet raised controversy on Twitter on Tuesday evening among fans who wondered what Salah meant. Some believed the tweet is just a simple New Year resolution. But some think that the tweet is about Salah’s dispute with the Egyptian FA over the forward’s image rights.
Maybe Salah wants to be less active on social media this year, to focus more on his career. But is it a wise decision, since social media was bringing him closer to the heart of his fans?
