Jurgen Klopp Gives Update on Salah and Mane | Read
The manager of Liverpool Football Club, Jurgen Klopp has given an update concerning the availability of Mohamed Salah ahead of the club’s game against Leicester City.
Klopp confirmed on Liverpool’s website that Salah is back with the squad after the disappointment from the Africa Cup of Nations which was hosted in Cameroon. The winger was part of the Egyptian team that lost the final 4-2 on penalties against the Terenga Lions of Senegal.
Mo is now back, I spoke already to him. He is very disappointed of course, but looking forward to all the things coming up here now and pretty much, the first thing Mo told me was I am ready. Haha!. He is an experienced player, he is a physical monster, to be honest, so we have to see. He will obviously have a little recovery session today and we will see how he feels tomorrow and from there we go.
He also spoke about when Mane is expected to be back in Liverpool.
Sadio flies out if it’s possible on Wednesday night, so will arrive here on Thursday but he is, of course then not involved in the Leicester game. It means the world to him. It means the world to his people, it means the world to Senegal and we respect that alot and we will never have considered to have called him back from there or whatever, let them do what they do in the moment because they deserve it. They have had an incredible intense time, so when he is back, we will talk to him and see how we can use him.
Salah and Mane left Liverpool on Sunday, January 2nd, 2022 after the Premier League game against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
