Liverpool’s star player, Mohamed Salah, will be returning to the club on Wednesday to begin his rehabilitation following a muscle injury. The severity of the injury is said to be worse than initially feared, and according to Salah’s agent, Ramy Abbas, he could be out of action for at least 21-28 days.
Originally, Egypt had ruled Salah out for just two games after he sustained the injury during their 2-2 draw with Ghana at the Africa Cup of Nations. However, it has now been decided that Salah will return to Liverpool to undergo an intensive rehabilitation program.
Salah’s agent, Ramy Abbas, announced on X that the injury is more serious than previously thought and that Salah will not be able to play for two games as initially expected. Instead, he will be out for a longer period. Upon his return to Merseyside, Salah will work closely with Liverpool’s medical staff to recover as quickly as possible to be able to contribute to both club and country. This will provide him with the best chance of returning to the Africa Cup of Nations if Egypt continues to advance in the tournament.
The club did not provide a specific timeline for Salah’s return to action, but they mentioned that his return to Liverpool for treatment gives him the best opportunity to come back for the later stages of the Africa Cup of Nations if Egypt progresses. Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, commented after their recent victory over Bournemouth, stating that it would be beneficial for Salah to complete his rehabilitation with the club’s medical team.
In conclusion, Salah will be returning to Liverpool to undergo rehabilitation for his muscle injury, which has been revealed to be more severe than initially anticipated. It is estimated that he could be out of action for approximately 21-28 days. By working closely with Liverpool’s medical staff, Salah aims to make a swift recovery and potentially contribute to Egypt’s campaign in the Africa Cup of Nations.
