On Wednesday, the Egyptian police returned a silver medal that was stolen from the home of Mohamed Salah, the Liverpool star and captain of the Egyptian national football team.
The Ministry of Interior added in a statement that the theft took place on the second of March, and that it was able to identify the thieves, including a former security officer in the residential complex.
The statement added that all the stolen items were seized, which included a silver medal, a number of sports shoes, and TV receivers.
A security source confirmed to Reuters that the intended player in the statement was Salah, the Liverpool striker.
The photo, which the police posted on its Facebook account, showed that the silver medal belonged to the African Cup of Nations, which Salah lost in the 2017 and 2022 editions.
It is expected that Salah will come to Egypt next week, where he will lead his country to face Malawi in two consecutive matches in the African Cup of Nations qualifiers, and the first will be in Cairo on March 24, and the second in Malawi four days later.
Salah resides in England, where he shines with Liverpool, and this month he became the historic scorer for his club in the English Premier League, with 129 goals.
