Chelsea’s Mohamed Salah can remain with Blues after being spared Compulsory Military Service

share on:

Chelsea have confirmed Mohamed Salah has been spared completing his national service in his native Egypt.


The former Basel man was reportedly going to be forced to return to Egypt to complete the duty after cancelling his place on an education program, which spared him the obligation.

However despite the fears, Chelsea have confirmed the winger will be allowed to remain at Stamford Bridge, according to Sky.

Military service in Egypt can last for anything between one and three years, with males becoming eligible when they turn 18.

22-year-old Salah joined the Blues in January after impressing against them in both the Europa League and Champions League for former club Basel.

Salah scored in Chelsea’s 3-2 victory over AFC Wimbledon on Saturday, having netted twice for the Blues in the second half of last season, including in their 6-0 victory over Arsenal.
