Liverpool confirm Mohamed Salah’s return from AFCON for injury rehab despite Egypt manager Rui Victoria’s stinging criticism of Jurgen Klopp

The Egyptian superstar picked up a knock while on AFCON duty with his country. An initial diagnosis ruled him out of action for two games, but a second X-ray has uncovered a bigger problem. With that in mind, the decision has been taken for Salah to head back to Anfield.

Liverpool have said in a statement on the club’s official website: “Mohamed Salah will return to the AXA Training Centre on Wednesday to begin an intensive rehabilitation programme with Liverpool’s medical team on the muscle injury he sustained with Egypt last week. The injury, which is worse than first feared, forced the forward from the field in the first half of the Africa Cup of Nations fixture with Ghana and an agreement has been reached with the Egyptian FA for Salah to undergo treatment in Liverpool.
