Mohamed Salah to return to Liverpool for injury treatment

Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah will return to the club for injury treatment, as confirmed by the Egyptian Football Association.

The decision comes after Salah sustained an injury during Egypt’s Africa Cup of Nations campaign.

Although he is expected to miss their next two games, he could rejoin the national team for the tournament’s semi-finals if Egypt progresses.

After undergoing additional examinations, it was decided that Salah would head back to England after 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.”

Liverpool initially felt Salah’s absence in their game against Bournemouth, but they managed to secure a 4-0 win, extending their lead at the top of the Premier League table.

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.”
