Mohamed Salah’s injury is worse than expected.
Fabrizio Romano, an expert on the European soccer transfer market, said on his SNS on the 23rd (Korea Standard Time) that Salah’s agent Ramy Abbas said. “The injury is more serious than I first thought,” Ramy Abbas said.
“Salah will be away for three to four weeks. Currently, her best chance to participate in the African Cup of Nations is to undergo intensive rehabilitation in England and join the Egyptian national team immediately when she gets better,” she explained.
Egypt tied Ghana 2-2 in the second Group B match of the African Cup of Nations at the Felix Upue-Buani Stadium in Abidjan, Ivory Coast, Africa, at 5 a.m. on the 19th.
Just before the end of the first half, a bad news came to Egypt. Salah sat down after the run in the extra time of the first half. The medical staff came in to check Salah’s physical condition and eventually Salah left the ground. Salah pointed to the back of his thigh and was suspected of a hamstring injury.
After the match, Egyptian coach Louis Vittoria said, “I hope it’s not a big deal. But using one chance to replace him in the first half was a problem. There were only two second half moments when I could replace him. I don’t know how Salah is doing. I don’t think it’s dangerous, but we have to see him recover.”
Salah has reportedly suffered a hamstring injury. Romano said on his SNS on the 20th, “The Egyptian Football Federation cannot play against Cabo Verde in the final group match of the African Cup of Nations due to Salah’s hamstring injury. Even if he advances to the round of 16, he will not be able to participate.” The Egyptian Football Federation officially announced on its SNS on the 21st that Salah will miss two matches of the African Cup of Nations due to severe injury.
Salah headed to Liverpool for treatment. Romano wrote on his SNS, “The Egyptian Football Federation announced that Salah would be going to England for treatment. The Egyptian Football Federation is hopeful that Salah will rejoin if he advances to a semi-final.”
It is a huge blow for Egypt. Egypt had to deal with Cabo Verde without Salah. Cabo Verde won both the first and second rounds to secure its advance to the round of 16. The team started rotation to improve physical stamina, and Egypt made a dramatic advance to the round of 16 by tying with Cabo Verde 2-2.
Salah’s injury is also a cause for concern for Liverpool. Salah was the core of Liverpool’s attack this season as well. He was in charge of scoring many goals as he was the top scorer in the league and also the top scorer in assists. While Salah was away at the Africa Cup of Nations, concerns grew over Salah’s injury. Currently, Liverpool ranks first with 48 points. It is five points shorter than Manchester City, which played one less game.월카지노주소
Jürgen Klopp said, “The plan is for Salah to return to Liverpool. I think everyone knows that no matter how long he is absent, it makes sense for him to rehabilitate with us or our players. That’s the plan, but I don’t know if it’s already been decided or not.”
“I talked to Salah right after the game. He has been in contact with our doctor ever since. The doctor informed me of the news, so I think he will be back soon. I am not a doctor. But if Egypt advances to the finals and Salah is healthy, I can play for Egypt again.”
Salah is also a living legend in the Premier League. Before coming to Liverpool, Salah was a fast but a little lacking player. After failing to settle down at Chelsea, he moved to Fiorentina and entered Serie A. Afterwards, he played for AS Roma and joined Liverpool in the 2017-18 season.
With Salah joining Liverpool, Liverpool and Salah enjoyed their glory days. Salah rose to the top of the PL scoring list just after his first season in Liverpool. The following year, Salah also became the top scorer for the second consecutive year, as well as the top scorer in the PL. Salah continued to show good performance and topped the UEFA Champions League (UCL) in the 2018-19 season. She also won Liverpool’s long-cherished PL title in the following season. It was the first PL title in Liverpool’s history.
Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Salah conquered Europe by forming the “Manura Line.” The “Manura Line” was a combination of power and power comparable to those of the BBC (Gareth Bale, Benzema, Cristiano Ronaldo) and MSN (Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, and Neymar). The “Manura Line” saved Liverpool, which had been in a dark period for a long time. Firmino’s connection and Mane and Salah’s breakthrough powers combined to make it the best ever.
Salah collected many trophies from Liverpool including PL, UCL, and FA Cup. Her personal career was also the best, with three top PL scorer and one top PL assist. Salah has 153 goals and 72 assists in 251 matches in the PL. Her record proves that she is the best player in the PL history.
Even when Liverpool was poor last season, Salah maintained good performance. Coach Jürgen Klopp sent Liverpool to the UCL every season. However, last season, he moved to the UEFA Europa League (UEL) as he finished the league in fifth place. The Cup championship was full of regrets. UCL finished in the round of 16 and FA Cup in the round of 32. Despite Liverpool’s disappointing performance, Salah did her part. Salah scored 19 goals and 12 assists.
Salah continued to perform well for Liverpool and accumulated points one by one. Salah has been showing off her powerful scoring skills this season as well. She has also provided opportunities for her teammates along with her ability to solve problems herself.
Still, Klopp is not worried about Salah’s departure. “In the last African Cup of Nations, both Salah and Sadio Mane were absent. We played several games without Salah this season, and we also had a substitute for Salah in the match against West Ham United,” Klopp said.
