Preacher – Salah’s injury is God’s punishment for breaking Ramadan fast

Published

on

Kuwaiti preacher, Mubarak al-Bathali, claimed in a tweet that God punished Mohamed Salah for eating before the Champions League final.

Mubarak al-Bathali claimed that Salah sinned by breaking his fast for the match, adding that the Egyptian was poorly advised and that he will “unfortunately bear the burden” for it, reported Spanish football site, AS.

He added that while Muslims are allowed to stop fasting for travel, eating and drinking in order to play a football match is “not a legitimate excuse.”

“Do not think the Muslim believes that life is managed by reason and effort, but life in the hand of God comes to whom he wills, whether hard or not diligent,” Al-Bathali wrote. “Perhaps (the injury) is good for you.”

See the tweet:

Auto-translation provided by Twitter reads: “How many stories have we heard linking the incident to the event..?
That a person was unjust or this person did that God punish him. Who told you that God is the consequence of..?

“For this which happened with the player, Muhammad Salah is not one of the stories that we hear that it is from our reality and for that you do not believe…

“Then Allah Almighty punishes the honest believer to return him from his mistake or sleepy heads.”

The preacher also praised Salah for being an ambassador for Islam in the West and for having habits such as walking away when his teammates drink alcohol. “Do not grieve, the door of repentance is open,” he concluded.

It may be recalled that the striker lasted just half an hour of Liverpool’s 3-1 defeat to Real Madrid at the Champions League Final in Kiev, after being forced off with a suspected dislocated shoulder sustained during a tussle with Sergio Ramos.

The 22-year-old ace will be sidelined for no more than three weeks but is expected to play a part in Egypt’s World Cup campaign.

Initially, it was reported that Salah was going to continue fasting in the build-up to the Champions League final. However, Liverpool’s physiotherapist Rubén Pons later confirmed that the Egyptian would breakfast temporarily for the two days prior to the final.

During Ramadan, Muslims are not allowed to eat or drink from dawn to sunset, engaging in an increased prayer activity. However, fasting is only obligatory for healthy Muslims. Anyone who is suffering from an illness, traveling, elderly, pregnant, breastfeeding or menstruating are exempt from the practice.

Mourinho: I wanted to play Martial

Published

on

Manchester United started the Premier League season with a 2-1 win over Leicester. Captain Paul Pogba scored from the penalty spot before Luke Shaw scored his first career goal to double the score. Substitute Jamie Vardy scored a late equaliser.

After having such little time with the first team following the World Cup, with many of the players returning to first team training as recently as Monday, Jose Mourinho acknowledged that his players were tired and not match fit.

Anthony Martial, whose agent has claimed on more than one occasion this summer that the player wants out of the club, was an unused substitute but Mourinho claims he wanted to play the forward.

I needed six changes not three, three weren’t enough for me. I want to play Martial for Mata or Alexis but I couldn’t. Paul Pogba couldn’t play 90 minutes, Fred the same. I needed more changes, but I couldn’t so it was not easy to manage the game from the touchline point of view.

I feel I wanted more attack and I feel that Martial coming into the game in the last 20 minutes for Alexis could have given us the second goal to kill the game. But I couldn’t make that change, so it was really hard. But the players gave everything, they gave what they had. I told them to give everything they had. You have 10 minutes, you give 10 minutes. Marouane told me he couldn’t give me more than 10 minutes, okay but give me 10 minutes. Everybody did that in a fantastic way.

Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho has explained why Paul Pogba was handed the team’s captain band in their Premier League game against Leicester City on Friday.

Mourinho started the French midfielder in Friday night’s Premier League opener after just a few days’ training.

Pogba scored from the penalty spot to give United the lead in the first half with Luke adding the second goal late in the second half.

Pogba had his first training session on Monday but impressed to such an extent with his application and physical condition that he was picked to start.

The Portuguese coach handed Pogba the captaincy.

Asked about the significance of making Pogba captain, Mourinho told Sky Sportsm, “Last season, he was captain a few times.

“Valencia is captain, but Valencia is not here.

“Paul is one of the options, third season, made in the academy, understands the club, the culture, good relationship with his teammates and a good example today putting himself in the team.”
