“Tormentor-General” Mohamed Salah of F.C. Liverpool has returned to training in preparation for today’s decisive Champions League quarter-final second leg match against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.
It will be recalled that F.C. Liverpool won the first leg tie by three unreplied goals with Mohamed Salah having scored the first before setting set up Sadio Mane for the third after Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain had put in the second in that first encounter at Anfield.
Salah, who has scored 38 goals in all competitions, had to come off in the second half with a groin injury and was consequently absent for the Merseyside derby draw against Everton at the weekend in the Premiership.
Salah however was seen participating in the group work out at Liverpool’s Melwood training facility and surely appears to be on the verge of returning for today’s do or die encounter.
Liverpool’s coach Klopp was asked about the fitness level of the team’s star player and the possibility of his playing in today’s game.
This is what he had to say;
“We’re not sure 100 per cent, he was with the athletic coach [on Sunday],” Klopp told a media conference.
“Rather yes than no, but we have to wait and see for the reaction.”
