Mohamed Salah injury update

Before clashing with Bournemouth, Liveprool were handed an injury scare on Thursday evening.

Mohamed Salah went down off the ball and immediately signalled that he could not continue during the first half of Egypt’s clash with Ghana on Thursday.

However, in good news for Liverpool fans, Egypt coach Rui Vitoria believes Mohamed Salah’s injury is ‘not dangerous’.

Salah walked through the mixed zone after the match without stopping to speak to journalists, but his boss gave a relatively positive update when asked for news on his star man:

“I hope it’s not a big problem,” Vitoria said in his post-match press conference. “But it was a problem in the first-half, because we lost one time to make a substitution. In the second-half we only had two moments to make substitutions.”

On the severity of the injury, he added: “Now I don’t know because it’s [too] early to see something. I think it’s not dangerous, but let’s see if Salah recovers.”
