Klopp confirms Salah is returning to Liverpool

Speaking after his sides comfortable 4 - 0 victory over Bournemouth, Liverpool Manager Jurgen Klopp confirmed Mohamad Salah is returning to Anfield for further treatment on his muscle strain.

After suffering a muscle strain whilst representing Egypt last week, Liverpool fans have been desperate to hear news on how Mo Salah's recovery is progressing.  So when Jurgen Klopp provided a substantial update, after his sides 4 - 0 victory over Bournemouth earlier today, fans were keen to hear what he had to say.

Speaking at his post-match press conference, Klopp confirmed that Salah will be returning to Anfield,

"That's the plan. I think everybody sees it makes sense to (rehab) with us.  Salah has spoken to the LFC doctor. Nothing set in stone though."

However, within an hour of Klopps comments, the Egyptian FA have also released a statement, confirming Salah's return.

"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."

Salah's AFCON in the balance...

Egypt will need a much improved performance against Cape Verde on Tuesday, if they are to stand any chance of progressing to the knock-out stage of the competition.  If they lose, Egypt will most likely go out, and Salah's AFCON will be over for another four years.

If Egypt do progress, Salah will still miss the next game, but could be available if Egypt reach the Semi Final in a couple of weeks time.

If Egypt fail to progress, then Salah will already be back at Liverpool, with the clubs doctors, progressing his rehab in the best possible place, ready to return to the Liverpool starting line up as soon as possible.

Lifelong fan with a passion for all things Liverpool. First memory of football is watching John Barnes score a dramatic last minute equaliser in the FA Cup when he was 4. Feels lucky to be a part of the 'Klopp' era.
