Egypt international and Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has suffered an injury and will not be playing the national team's two matches against Kenya and Comoros. Salah has suffered an ankle injury.
The Egypt national football team posted pictures on Twitter which showed the players huddled together, and Salah could be clearly seen with a protective boot around his left leg. In another picture, he is seen sitting on the bench with two others. The Egyptian has been suffering from niggles since Liverpool's match against Leicester City on October 5. He has, however, has gone on playing and has not suffered any effects of the injury in his game. The Egyptian also scored a goal against the high profile clash against Manchester City on Sunday evening. In a very brief statement, the Egypt national team said that "The injury needs a period of treatment to recover". Club manager Jurgen Klopp had substituted Salah in the match against Tottenham and after the game, he had said that it was nothing serious. He said, "Mo's problem is his ankle — it got sore the longer the game went on, but it is not a massive issue. It makes no sense to try to push it through. We have other players and we had options to change it and we did. It's nothing serious. It's not massive - it will disappear one day, but it's still a bit there at the moment."
Salah has been in an exceptional form over the last three years and has been one of the club's stand out player, leading the Merseyside to two European finals and one Champions League trophy. In his first season at Liverpool in 2017, he scored 32 goals winning the Golden boot award. In his second season, he shared the award with teammate Sadio Mane and Arsenal's Pierre-Emrick Aubameyang at 22 goals. This season, he has faced injury problems but has still managed to score six goals and assist three goals.
Liverpool has been having an exceptional season this year. The club has stepped up a gear from last season when they missed out on the Premier League narrowly to Manchester City. This year, the club has not lost a single game in 12 matches, dropping two points and claiming a staggering 34 points off 36 available. The club is increasingly becoming the favourites their first League trophy since the 1989-90 season. They have never won the Premier League and are well set to lift the trophy.
