Liverpool Star Salah Set For Return After Negative Covid-19 Test

Liverpool Star Salah Set For Return After Negative Covid-19 Test


The forward tested positive while on international duty for Egypt, but could now be in contention to face Atalanta on Wednesday night.

Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that Mohamed Salah has tested negative for coronavirus and will resume training with Liverpool on Monday.

The Egyptian missed the Reds’ 3-0 win over Leicester on Sunday night after testing positive for Covid-19 during the international break.

But Klopp revealed after the match that Salah could now return in the Champions League against Atalanta on Wednesday night, and that the 28-year-old will be part of the Liverpool squad that undergo a UEFA round of testing on Monday. .

Klopp said, “That’s what I’ve heard. Today is negative. I think from now on it’s pretty normal in all tests.

“Morning [Monday] we have UEFA trials for the Champions League and I’m pretty sure he’ll be on to that. Now you can train with us tomorrow.

“Could there be Premier League tryouts the next day? Yes, there are two tests in the next two days, so they will, like all of us.

The news will be a significant boost for the Reds boss, who saw Naby Keita join a growing disabled list Sunday. Keita lasted just 53 minutes against Leicester before suffering a hamstring problem, which will be evaluated at Kirkby.

Liverpool could also be left without Xherdan Shaqiri for their upcoming matches as the Swiss star has struggled during international service.

Klopp said: “Naby felt his hamstring and couldn’t keep playing, otherwise he would have stayed on the field.

“Shaq had a muscle injury with the national team that he didn’t really realize about. He trained with us and then he felt it a bit. We did a scan and they found he has a five or six day injury.

“No one knew, not even Shaq, so he couldn’t participate.”

Liverpool tied Premier League leaders Tottenham on points after a dominant display against Leicester, a result that means the Reds set a new club record of 64 undefeated home league games.

“It’s amazing, but it’s all about the guys,” Klopp said. “It’s really hard to pull off something like this, but when you think about how tight a lot of the games were, the guys had to push themselves and they did.

“We really enjoy playing here, it’s our turf, our home and everything feels like home even when people aren’t here, which is absolutely bullshit or silly, whatever the right word is.

“The guys on the court are incredible and that’s the sole reason for the number. It’s difficult to set records at this club because our parents and grandparents were obviously quite good.

“I’m happy for the players, but I don’t feel that way right now because we played on Wednesday.”
