Egypt football star Salah signals progress in image dispute

first_imgThe dispute has centred on an advertising campaign by the national team’s main sponsor, Telecom Egypt’s mobile arm WE, which has relied heavily on photos of Salah, who has his own contract with global telecom giant Vodafone.An initial hint of major discord came on April 20, when Salah’s representative Ramy Abbas Issa tweeted “we are having a very serious issue with the Egyptian Football Association”.Salah had signalled his growing frustration earlier on Sunday by tweeting “unfortunately the way it is being dealt with is very insulting. I was hoping the interaction would be classier than this.”Issa on Saturday complained that he and Salah had not even been contacted by the EFA. “Complete silence! What’s the plan?! We just see more and more billboards and ads coming out which we have never authorised!” he tweeted.But on Sunday Egypt’s Minister of Youth and Sports Khaled Abd Elaziz announced that “an agreement has been reached” with the football association “to carry out all the requests” by Salah.“I affirm that we will all stand beside him to implement all the contracts he signed in England, so that he does not face any problems,” the minister said on his Twitter account.The Twitter storm has marked a departure from Salah’s usual genteel online presence, which has generally been limited to photos of him in action and on the training field, or compliments for peers on the Liverpool and Egyptian national teams.The player has scored 43 goals so far this season, including a stunning brace in Liverpool’s 5-2 Champions League semi-final first leg demolition of Roma earlier this month.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Liverpool’s Egyptian midfielder Mohamed Salah attends a training session at the team’s Melwood training complex in Liverpool, north west England, on April 23, 2018 on the eve of their first-leg UEFA Champions League semi-final football match against Roma. © AFP / Paul ELLISCAIRO, Egypt, Apr 30 – An image rights storm that has seen star Mohamed Salah lash out at Egyptian football authorities is on the way to being settled, the Liverpool playmaker has signalled.“We were promised a solution and God willing the issue is on its way to being resolved,” the midfield maestro tweeted late Sunday, while thanking his fans for their “unreal” support.last_img read more

Telecom Spectrum Auction Modi Govts Gain is Subscribers Loss Idea Cellular Hikes

first_imgThe Modi government’s coffers may have become richer from the aggressive bidding for spectrum auctioned in March, but it has already had its domino effect on subscribers, as predicted by analysts.Idea Cellular has raised tariffs for mobile data plans by as much as 100 percent for pre-paid users in the NCR region. India’s third largest telecom carrier has doubled the tariff for few 2G data plans, while increasing charges for 3G by nearly 33 percent. The revised tariffs are effective from 3 June.The company has also cut down the validity period for some data plans.It is also expected to hike data tariffs in other circles in the coming days, Livemint said, quoting industry sources. Idea is the first telecom operator to announce tariff hike after the fierce bidding by telecom companies in March during the spectrum auction that saw the Centre receiving bids for ₹1.10 lakh crore. Idea had successfully renewed its spectrum licences in the nine telecom circles where it was operating. The company also emerged as the top bidder committing about ₹30,300 crore.After the auction, the carriers were required to pay about 33 percent of the final bidding amount to the government within 10 days. The companies have the option to pay the remaining amount in 10 annual instalments beginning from 2017.”The auctions will increase the debt burden of the industry by 70-80% of the spectrum price paid,” Hemant Joshi of Delloitte Haskins and Sells, had told The Economic Times in March.Some analysts had estimated a minimum increase of 10 percent in tariffs, while others expected them to go up by 15 percent.Experts believe that with the increase in spectrum costs, companies may seriously consider passing on the cost to consumers, despite the intense competition.last_img read more
