Mo Salah wants team mate sent home from AFCON over s3xual harassment allegations giving a 2nd chance

Mohamed Salah has broken his silence after international teammate Amr Warda was sent home from Egypt's Africa Cup of Nations campaign in disgrace.

Warda, 25, appeared as a substitute in the host nation's opening game against Zimbabwe but will play no further part in the tournament.

Warda, who plays his club football in Greece, has been embroiled in allegations that he sexually harassed a number of women on the internet.

Merhan Keller, a British-Egyptian model, released screenshots of inappropriate messages she, and other women, received from Warda on Instagram and Whatsapp.

Salah condemned the acts surrounding the allegations, but insisted that Warda shouldn't have been "sent straight to the guillotine".

Salah, who scored in Egypt's 2-0 victory over DR Congo on Wednesday, wrote on Twitter : "Women must be treated with the utmost respect. 'No' means 'no'. Those things are and must remain sacred.

"I also believe that many who make mistakes can change for the better and shouldn’t be sent straight to the guillotine, which is the easiest way out.

"We need to believe in second chances... we need to guide and educate. Shunning is not the answer."

Warda have also apologised for his actions in a Facebook video, saying; "Sorry to anyone who is upset at me or anyone I have upset."


  1. Yes we all deserve a second chance. But his punishment has not started, so what are you saying

  2. Birds of the same feather. Why will i be surprised
