Mohamed Salah the Liverpool’s marksman will not be in action for the Champions league semi-final 2nd leg match with Barcelona. This will be due to a concussion he’s suffering. The Egyptian and Liverpool’s forward suffered a head injury in their Saturday’s premiership match against Newcastle. The weekend match ended 2-3 in favor of Liverpool. But to the detriment of their “key man” Mohamed Salah sustaining a head injury.
Furthermore, The Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp confirmed at his pre-Barca press conference that Salah would not make the Anfield match against Barcelona. Klopp added that “It’s a concussion so it’s a case of him not even being allowed to play”. Klopp, whose side will be going into the second leg of the UEFA Champions League semi-final match with a 3-0 deficit on aggregate. After last week’s first leg in Spain.
However, Liverpool Manager added that. Salah feels OK but it’s not good enough from a medical point view, that’s all.” Klopp also voiced that he had already conceded Salah’s fellow forward, Roberto Firmino, would miss out with a muscle problem. The team have it all to do to turn around the tie on Tuesday. And Klopp knows the loss of two of his most vital player does not help the cause.”
Finally Klopp concluded that “There’s hope and that’s football. We are far away from giving up. Two of the world’s best strikers are not available for tomorrow clash with Barcelona. But it doesn’t make life any easier. Hence while we have 11 players on the pitch we will give our best and hopefully turn the game around.”
