Klopp: Salah may return to training next week


Mohamed Salah could return to training next week after recovering from a hamstring injury, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has confirmed.

Salah suffered the injury while on international duty with Egypt at the Africa Cup of Nations, coming off at half-time in the 2-2 draw with Ghana in January.

The forward was initially diagnosed with a strain in his posterior muscle, with the Egypt Football Federation saying he would only be absent for two matches.

Klopp, though, has provided a positive update on Salah's condition.

"Mo is going in the right direction. We hope - but we don't know - that he can be a part of training next week. If you ask him, it's next week," said the German in his pre-match press conference ahead of Burnley's visit to Anfield on Saturday afternoon.

"He's going through his paces now, but it's positive. It will be next week or the week after. If you ask him, it will be next week!"
