“Héctor Cúper will now evaluate all the players who were in the camp, espcially that this was the last camp before the World Cup and the next one will be in May.

“All the players appeared in a good way and what is important are the lessons we learned during this camp. It’s now the manager’s turn to evaluate everything,” the Liverpool winger added.

Mohamed Salah will now return to England as Liverpool have a number of big games in the upcoming period, including a double-header against Manchester City in the Champions League.
