There is some good news coming from Anfield following the injury of Liverpool star striker Mohamed Salah on Saturday.
The forward, who is one of Jurgen Klopp’s most important players, hobbled off in the 92nd minute during his side’s 2-1 win over Leicester City after a rash challenge from midfielder Hamza Choudhury.
At the moment, Salah’s injury looked more serious and fans got worried especially coming when they need more wins in order to thump authority at the table’s summit. But Daily Mirror’s David Maddock has brought hopes to the fans.
“Good news for #LFC – Salah took a bad knock at the end of the game, but initial checks have shown injury not serious – not as bad as first appeared, “he tweeted.
Due to the injury, and despite his side picking up all three points, Klopp was furious with the Foxes midfielder – who only picked up a yellow card.
“It’s a challenge which I really don’t understand … it’s dangerous as hell,” Klopp said, adding that, “He is a player who is at full sprint, to bring him down without the ball around, for me, it (card) is only one colour.
“I don’t want to cause the boy any problems but he has to calm down in situations like that. It’s not the first time. He has to calm down.
“He’s a super player, super development in the last one or two years at Leicester, but these kinds of challenges, no. I don’t know how that cannot be red,” he ranted.
On his side, Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers played down the incident. “Mo Salah is coming inside at speed and there’s a clash of course. With the emotion of the game at that time, it might seem worse than it was.
“He [Choudhury] was just trying to get back into position. Mo cut across him and there’s a collision. He’s an honest boy. He makes challenges, he’s aggressive but I don’t think there was anything malicious in it at all, ” he said.
