Mohamed Salah injury latest

After the win over Chelsea, Jurgen Klopp provided an update on Mohamed Salah.

The winger returned to England for treatment after picking up a hamstring injury in Egypt’s 2-2 draw with Ghana last week.

Liverpool assistant manager Pepijn Lijnders said Salah is expected to return to action in three to four weeks if there are no setbacks in his recovery.

The AFCON final is on February 11 and Klopp confirmed Salah will feature if Egypt get there and he is fit:

“Egypt and Liverpool both have the same interest, we want Mo Salah fit as soon as possible,” Klopp stated.

“If he stays in Africa and they can’t do the proper treatment, it will just delay everything, especially for Egypt if they go through the tournament.vWe bring him here not because we want to take him away from Egypt but just to offer the best medical treatment.

“It’s all agreed. If Salah is fit and Egypt go to the final, it was always clear, he goes back, 100%. Mo wants that, we want that.”
