Croatian Diane Lovren revealed that his former Liverpool teammate, Egyptian international Mohamed Salah, felt “jealousy” because of the former’s participation in the World Cup finals.
Croatia plays in Group F with Belgium, Canada and Morocco, while Egypt lost its seat in the finals to Senegal, which is participating in Group A competitions.
Lovren said during a press conference: 100% Salah is jealous, if I were in his place, I would feel the same.
He continued: Salah was very close to qualifying, but Mane was better. Salah told me that he would come to the World Cup with the Croatian flag.
The Croatian national team will begin its campaign against Morocco next Wednesday.
