Based on Time, Mohamed Salah will return to training with Liverpool on Tuesday after the final disappointment of AFCON. The Egyptian is said to be eager to start their next game: against Leicester City in the Premier League on Thursday.
Salah-led Egypt recently lost to Senegal on penalties in Sunday’s AFCON final. His Liverpool Senegalese teammates and strikers Sadio Mane missed the penalty kick in the allotted time but scored the last-place winner in the penalty shootout to win the continental championship.
Mane went to Senegal to celebrate the championship with his team and country. Meanwhile, the Egypt captain is expected to join Liverpool’s training camp as they prepare for the upcoming match.
The return of the Egyptian player will be a great motivation for Jurgen Klopp’s teachers and students in the race to the Premier League title. The Red Devils received a 0-1 defeat in the reverse fixture against Leicester in December.
They will be looking to avenge that defeat and continue to trail leaders Manchester City, who currently have a nine-point lead. The Reds, however, have a game in their hands.
Liverpool manage well without Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane
Many people expect the Red Devils to have a hard time without their superstar. But that’s not the case at all.
Mane and Salah last played for the Red Devils in a 2-2 draw with Chelsea on January 2. Since then, the Reds have been unbeaten in all competitions, winning the last 5/6 matches.
They beat Arsenal 2-0 in the EFL Cup semi-final and will now face Chelsea in the final. They also reached the fifth round of the FA Cup, beating Cardiff City 3-1.
The Egyptian has contributed 32 goals in 26 games for the Reds this season while Mane has 11 in 26 games in all competitions. So playing well without the duo is a big positive for Jurgen Klopp.
