Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah has been confirmed to return to the club for injury treatment, as stated by the Egyptian Football Association.
Salah suffered an injury during Egypt’s Africa Cup of Nations campaign and is expected to miss their upcoming matches.
However, if Egypt advances to the semi-finals, he may rejoin the national team. After further examinations, it was decided that Salah would return to England following Egypt’s final Group B match against Cape Verde.
The Egyptian FA in a statement said, “After additional examinations were conducted on Mohamed Salah during the last hours, and after communication between the national team’s medical staff and his counterpart at Liverpool FC, it was decided that the player will return to England after the Cape Verde match tomorrow to complete his treatment, with the hope that he will join the national team in the semi-final of the AFCON if we qualify.
Although Liverpool initially felt his absence in their game against Bournemouth, they still achieved a 4-0 victory, extending their lead in the Premier League.
Speaking about Salah’s return, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said, “That’s the plan…
“However long he’s out, probably everybody sees it like this, it makes sense that he’s doing the rehab with us or with our people.”
