Liverpool handed major boost as Salah reportedly recovers from COVID-19
Reports have emerged that Liverpool star Mohamed Salah recovered from COVID-19 just nine days after his initial positive test.
Salah was confirmed to test positive for COVID-19 by the Egyptian Football Association (EFA) on two occasions.
The 28-year-old missed out on Egypt’s recent back-to-back victories against Togo in the 2021 AFCON qualifiers during the international break.
The EFA then released a statement on Wednesday announcing that Salah returned another positive COVID-19 test along with national team compatriot and Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny.
However, reports emerged that Salah recovered from the coronavirus on Sunday after his brother, Nasr Salah, posted a cryptic story on his Instagram account.
Nasr posted a picture with his brother and wrote ‘thank God’, implying that the Liverpool winger returned a negative COVID-19 test.
Despite missing out on Liverpool’s clash against Leicester City on Sunday, Salah could make his return against Atalanta in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday.
Salah had an impressive start to the 2020/21 season having scored ten goals while providing an assist in 13 appearances for Liverpool across all competitions.
