The 25-year-old winger has joined the Egyptian national team camp in preparation for representing the Pharaohs in the upcoming international friendly tournament, the "Egypt Capital Cup."

The tournament is scheduled to take place from 22nd to 26th March in the New Administrative Capital, featuring teams from New Zealand, Croatia, and Tunisia.

"I'm learning everything from Mohamed Salah on and off the pitch," Marmoush told the Bundesliga's official Facebook account. "It's a great honour to play alongside one of the best players in the world."

Marmoush acknowledged the positive influence Salah has on the national team players, especially the young ones.

"I always learn from him how to become a professional, both on and off the field," said Marmoush. "He's like a big brother to me and the other young players. He talks to us about sleep, work ethic - everything.

"I constantly seek his advice and benefit from his vast experience in matches.  Playing alongside him is a fantastic feeling," he added.

Marmoush has been in impressive form for Eintracht Frankfurt, emerging as the Bundesliga club's top scorer with 15 goals and six assists in 33 appearances across all competitions.

His performances have reportedly attracted interest from several Premier League clubs, with Liverpool leading the chase. Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur, and Newcastle United have also been linked with a move for the versatile winger according to media reports.
