Salah, who hasn’t scored for Liverpool in his last four games suffered a muscle strain, limped most of the second half and left the field into injury time.
Egypt assistant Hany Ramzy spoke to yallakora.com about the player’s injury, he said: “The initial diagnosis confirmed that the injury is a muscle strain and there is no possibility of muscle rupture.”
“The player needs to have radiation to determine the injury and the duration of his absence.”
“It is not a big injury, we support him with all our energy and we hope he will return without being affected by an injury as soon as possible.”
Mohamed Salah beat Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo to win the FIFA Puskas award with his goal for Liverpool against Everton back in December 2017, much of the football world however thought him winning the award was a joke and that it didn’t deserve to have won.
