EFA is trying to “compromise” with Mo Salah over image rights dispute

The Egyptian Football Association (EFA) is trying to reach a “compromise” with national footballer Mohamed Salah on their image rights dispute from earlier this year, EFA board member Hazem Emam said, according to the National. The EFA maintains that it has certain rights it also needs to protect, and is close to working out an arrangement with Salah that will end the dispute, according to Emam, who did not get into specifics. Salah had a falling out with the association earlier this year after state-owned mobile operator WE used Salah’s picture for ads without his permission, violating his contract with Vodafone and nearly costing him mns.
