Mohamed Salah injury latest

Ahead of the Fulham clash, Mohamed Salah is set to return to Liverpool from international duty.

Salahs’ participation at the Africa Cup of Nations is in severe doubt after he suffered the blow during Egypt’s group game against Gha

It was initially stated by the national team that Salah 31, would sit out two games before he appeared before the press on Sunday.

But Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has now poured doubt on his ability to play again at the tournament. Only if Egypt reach the final and Salah responds well to treatment will he be released to feature, the German said after the 4-0 win over Bournemouth on Sunday.

Klopp stated: “That’s the plan. I think everybody sees that it makes sense to [do his rehabilitation] with us.”

Asked if the player could return to AFCON, Klopp added: “If he is fit before the final, then probably, yes.”
