Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has revealed the condition of striker Mohamed Salah after he was injured during Egypt versus Ghana Africa Cup of Nations fixture in IVory Coast on Thursday.
Salah was substituted late in the first half of the 2-2 draw with an apparent hamstring issue and asked about his situation, Klopp said: “We don’t know anything. I spoke last night with him and how it is with these injuries, you need further assessment. That’s what they are doing now and then we will know more. Of course, it was in that moment a shock: ‘Oh my God, what is it?
“You couldn’t see that it was like [being] hit by something with high-intensity, you couldn’t see [that] and then going down, you have these kind of hamstring injuries in a different way but he still felt it and we all know how rarely Mo goes off or needs to go off so there is definitely something and we will see.”
Asked whether Liverpool will send medical staff to treat Salah, he said: “We will see, that depends on the diagnosis. There will be an ultrasound and they will do an MRI and then we will know what it is and then we will see what Egypt plans. But it’s too early [to say], sorry.”
