Mohamed Salah, Egyptian footballer in the service of FC Basel has told the media in his homeland that he doesn’t want to play for Basel in Israel against Maccabi Tel Aviv, which would “cost him his contract” (PI reported). Now Salah can have one less worry because Murat Yakin (photo), Turkish trainer for FC Basel indicated he will play along with this posse: “If someone is not free in his head, it would perhaps be better to do without the player. We have enough professionals on the squad who can sub in for Salah.” Antisemitic games that we know enough about by Muslim footballers in Germany in the lead-up to games against Israeli teams (PI reported here and here).
