Liverpool has its fingers closed as Salah looks unfit for C. League

Mohamed Salah seems to be having a bad omen in the Champions League, last season he was forced out after picking an injury during the UEFA Champions finals against Real Madrid after a bad tackle from Ramos.

Although the Liverpool boss ays they have to wait and see on whether the star is going to exhibit positive change, it’s unlikely that it’s going to come out.

The star ace was stretched out of the field after picking head injury which many thought to be a concussion, coming at a time when the reds have a match against Barcelona who beat them 3-0in the first leg.

Following the injury the Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah is a doubt for next week’s Champions League semi-final second leg against Barcelona after being carried off with a head injury in the 3-2 victory at Newcastle.

The problems are adding up for manager Jurgen Klopp as Roberto Firmino, who tore a muscle last week but still managed to come on as a late substitute in the Nou Camp, has already been ruled out of Tuesday’s game.

If they were to be without Salah, who is their leading goalscorer after netting his 26th of the season at St James’ Park, it would be a significant blow to their hopes.

The Egypt international was injured in a collision with goalkeeper Martin Dubravka and lay motionless on the pitch for several minutes while he was treated before leaving the field on a stretcher with his hands covering his face.

Klopp remains optimistic the 26-year-old will be available at Anfield on Tuesday.

“He got the hip of the goalie in his head and then was on the ground,” said the Reds boss.

“The doctor had to make a decision on the pitch or off the pitch and the decision was off the pitch and we accept that of course.

“When we came in, he was sitting in the dressing room and watching the game, or had watched the game.

“He was then fine but of course we have to wait. He got a proper knock in that situation.”

The situation is not so good for Firmino, who was absent for all-but 11 minutes of the midweek defeat in Catalonia and could yet miss the remainder of the season.

“No, he will not be ready for Tuesday and the rest [of the season] we will see,” Klopp added.
