Jurgen Klopp has shared a worrying report regarding Mohamed Salah’s injury suffered while representing Egypt at the Africa Cup of Nations.
During Egypt’s 2-2 draw against Ghana on Thursday, Salah was compelled to exit the match due to injury.
Substituted before halftime, he exhibited signs of a suspected hamstring injury, as captured in footage showing his departure from the stadium circulating online.
Klopp addressed inquiries about his star player ahead of Liverpool’s upcoming Premier League encounter with Bournemouth on Sunday.
The German manager disclosed that he had communicated with Salah post-game but emphasised that the club remains uncertain about the injury’s severity.
“We don’t know anything,” he said. “I spoke with him last night, and he will have further assessment. Then we will know more. He felt it, and we all know how rarely Mo goes off, so it’s definitely something. We will see.”
After the match, Egypt coach Rui Vitoria said: “We don’t know yet what is the problem. I hope it is not a big problem.
“Now, I don’t know because it is early to see something. I think it is not dangerous but let’s see if Salah recovers.”
Salah scored an impressive 18 goals in 27 appearances in all competitions this season before joining his national team.
