Salah Ruled Out For A Month

Egypt and Liverpool forward, Muhammed Salah will be sidelined for a month after sustaining a muscle injury in the game against Ghana at the ongoing African Cup of Nations.

Initially, the injury looked like a minor knock and Salah was ruled out for just two games last Thursday. However, his agent has confirmed that the injury has proven to be more serious than first feared after a close examination and would keep the Forward out of action for the next month.

Salah’s agent, Ramy Abbas revealed that situation on his X handle where he wrote “Salah’s injury is more serious than we first thought and will be out for approximately 21-28 days and not two games that were initially said by the physio.”

According to reports, Salah will fly back to Liverpool on Wednesday to start an intensive rehabilitation program, following a mutual agreement between Liverpool and the Egyptian Football Association.

“His best chance at participating in the current AFCON is by undergoing intensive rehabilitation in Liverpool and rejoining the National team as soon as he is fit”, Ramy added.

Speaking after an impressive 4-0 victory over Bournemouth on Sunday, Liverpool Manager Jurgen Klopp affirmed that it makes sense for Salah to complete his rehabilitation with the Liverpool medical team to speed up his recovery.

According to an official statement from Liverpool, Salah will immediately begin work with the club’s medical staff upon his return to Merseyside to return to action for both club and country as soon as medically possible and to return to the AFCON action if Egypt continues to progress in the tournament.

However, the Club didn’t give an expected or estimated date for Salah’s return but claimed that his recovery rate would increase with rehabilitation handled by the club’s medical staff.

Salah watched from the stands as Egypt qualified for the second round of the competition after a 2-2 draw with Cape Verde.
