Mo Salah is suffering from an “annoying problem”, which has forced him to sit out training with the first team squad this
But Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp still believes his star striker can be available for the visit to Aston Villa this weekend.
Salah was the victim of a cynical hack from Leicester ’s Hamza Choudrey almost a month ago – and is still plagued by issues from the challenge which his manager branded “dangerous as hell”.
He pulled up at the end of the Premier League clash with Spurs last weekend, and hobbled down the tunnel with an ice pack strapped to the ankle.
But Klopp has calmed fears from millions of the player’s fans worldwide, when he said: “He should be fine. He has had to do his individual stuff but he will be okay.
“But this is not a real injury in this sense, so I’ve heard (from the physios), so he should be fine.”.
Klopp will decide whether to rest salah for the visit to Villa Park, he also has a selection headache over midfielder Fabinho, who is one booking away from a ban, which if it came at the weekend, would mean he missed the titanic clash with Manchester City.
