Mohamed Salah Test Positive Again for Coronavirus
Liverpool and Egyptian forward Mohamed Salah has returned a second coronavirus result. It was gathered that the result returned is a positive one. It will be the second time the player is testing positive for coronavirus while on international duty with Egypt.
The 28-year-old initially tested positive last week, despite not displaying any symptoms. On Wednesday, the Egyptian Football Association confirmed Salah had been tested again and the result was positive.
He is likely to miss their next two games because of self-isolation rules. He will also miss Liverpool’s game against Leicester City in the Premier League on Sunday and then Atalanta in a Champions League group match on 25 November. Salah was the first in the Egyptian national team to test positive for the virus before Elneny of Arsenal joined in the list.
On Tuesday, Salah posted on social media: “I’d like to thank everyone for the supportive messages and well wishes. I’m confident I’ll be back on the field soon.” Liverpool did not comment on whether Salah would be available for Sunday’s game or not.
He remains in Egypt and the club will follow government and Premier League protocols on when he can return to action. Mohamed Salah has started all eight of Liverpool’s Premier League games this season, scoring eight goals.
