Klopp confirms Salah reassured him about injury, remains cautious
Liverpool succeeded in downing Manchester City in the first leg of the quarterfinals of the Champions League. Salah opened the score for his side, before Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain extended the hosts lead and ultimately Sadio Mane scoring a glancing header off a precise cross from the Egypt international in an impressive first half showing from Liverpool.
The 25-year-old wideman took on the field normally with the beginning of the second half but camera lenses caught him limping off the pitch in a bit of pain, which turned out to be an injury and that Salah can’t continue to make way for Wijnaldum.
Klopp admitted that he can’t give a final verdict on Salah’s condition but simultaneously said that he assured that he is ‘fine’.
“I don’t know in the moment. He came to the sideline and said he feels sometimes something; for me, that was enough for me to not even ask the Doc how he was, we immediately took him off the pitch,” Klopp said in post match press conference.
“After the game I asked him and he said, ‘I will be good, it will be fine’. But now we have to wait for the real diagnosis, not Mo’s self-diagnosis. We will see, I don’t know at the moment.”
