Egyptian professional footballer who plays as forward for English Premier League club, Liverpool FC, Mohamed Salah has reportedly tested negative to Coronavirus disease.
Naija News understands that the 28-year-old player tested positive during the last international break.
Salah, as confirmed by his club coach, Jurgen Klopp, may be listed in the squad to face Atalanta on Wednesday night, November 25, in the UEFA Champions League game.
According to Klopp while speaking with the club’s reporters earlier, Salah will resume training with Liverpool on Monday (today). Naija News understands that the left-footer striker missed the Reds’ 3-0 win over Leicester on Sunday evening, November 22 at Anfield.
“That’s what I’ve heard. A negative today. I think from now he is pretty normal in all the testing,” Klopp revealed in his conversation with journalists on Sunday.
He added, “Tomorrow [Monday] we have UEFA testing for the Champions League and I am pretty sure he will be in that. He can now train with us tomorrow.
“There could be Premier League tests the day after? Yes, there are two tests in the next two days so he will be tested, like all of us.”
