Jurgen Klopp on Mohamed Salah's injury ahead of Egypt's World Cup Qualifiers vs Senegal

Jurgen Klopp has given an injury update on Mohamed Salah after he looks to have strained his previous knock against Arsenal

Mo Salah was a massive doubt for Liverpool's game against Arsenal on Sunday. However, the Egyptian managed to play 35 minutes of the second half.

He didn't look too sharp but it's understandable considering he was probably not 100 per cent fit.

Even though Salah played at the Emirates, Klopp confirmed in his pre-Nottingham Forest press conference, as cited by Anfield Watch, that Mo could have injured himself again.

"Mo felt his foot again so we have to see what happens," said Klopp.

 

Anfield Watch Verdict

This isn't the worse news for Liverpool as Salah probably wouldn't have featured against Nottingham Forst on Sunday anyway.

Klopp also didn't sound too worried about it as it could be something as simple as the foot was bruised or swollen after the game.

However, Egyptian fans will be very worried about this news as they have two extremely important games against Senegal during the international break.

The Pharaohs will hope that their captain will be back to face his club teammate Sadio Mane for the two-legged World Cup Qualifier that decides who plays at the upcoming World Cup in Qatar.

A lot of people think that this could be a tactic by Klopp to not send him on the international break but we've seen in the past that Egypt will play Salah if he's fit or not.

Salah just being on the pitch is massive for the country, so hopefully, he doesn't do too much damage to himself if he does play as the Reds have a serious shot of winning the quadruple this season and Mo will be a key part of Klopp's plans to achieve that goal.
