the nation’s statement read.

Merhan Keller, a British-Egyptian model, shared screenshots sent over WhatsApp allegedly showing a string of inappropriate and aggressive messages sent by the footballer.

Warda was sent home before Egypt’s group game against Congo, which they won 2-0 thanks to goals from Elmonhamady and Salah and advanced into the knock out stages.

After the match Mohamed Salah took to social media to respond to the sexual harassment claims against Warda.

“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.”

Salah wrote on Twitter.

It’s not the first time Warda has been accused of misconduct. In 2017 he was accused of harassing two of his teammates wives- Warda strongly denies the allegation.

He has also apologized on social media, saying in a video:”Sorry to anyone who is upset at me or anyone I have upset.”
