Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that the injury sustained by the Egyptian forward is “serious”.
The first Egyptian to ever appear in a Champions League final, Salah’s night came to a premature end after Real Madrid’s captain Sergio Ramos wrestled the Liverpool star to the ground. Though he tried to carry on, the pain was eventually too much to bear and he ultimately had to leave the pitch.
In his post-match press conference, Klopp said: “It’s a serious injury, a really serious injury. He is in the hospital for an X-ray. It’s either the collarbone or the shoulder itself. It doesn’t look good, that’s it.”
However, the Egyptian FA are believed to be more optimistic over the injury, claiming that the damage is just a sprain which could be healed in just two weeks. If that is true, it would certainly boost Salah’s hopes of representing his country for the World Cup this summer.
All of Liverpool wishes our Egyptian a speedy recovery, and all of us hope to see him in Russia come June.
