Liverpool Forward Mohamed Salah Faces Up to a Month Out Due to Muscle Injury Sustained While on International Duty with Egypt

Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah is set to return to the club on Wednesday for rehabilitation following a hamstring injury described as “worse than first feared.” A detailed scan revealed a “proper tear in his hamstring,” and Liverpool assistant manager Pep Lijnders confirmed the news during a press conference. Initially expected to be out for just two games, the injury may now sideline Salah for nearly a month.

Salah sustained the muscle injury during Egypt’s 2-2 draw with Ghana at the Africa Cup of Nations last Thursday. Despite initial reports from Egypt suggesting a shorter recovery period, a comprehensive scan indicated a more severe situation.

Salah’s agent, Ramy Abbas, hinted at a prolonged absence, and an agreement between Liverpool and the Egyptian FA has facilitated his return to Anfield for an “intensive rehabilitation programme.” Lijnders stated, “His expected return will be between three and four weeks if everything goes right.”

The 31-year-old forward, who watched Egypt’s 2-2 draw with Cape Verde on Monday from the stands, is set to embark on a recovery journey that may keep him out of action for a significant period.
