CAIRO-20 November 2020: Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, avoided criticizing the club’s Egyptian winger, Mohamed Salah, after the English press highlighted Salah’s attendance in his brother’s wedding as the reason for the winger being tested positive for COVID-19.
“A brother's wedding is a very special moment. What I can say is our players, they are very incredibly disciplined. They really know about the situation. Now we're in the situation we are in. All the rest is just between Mo and me, and we have done that already. Things are fine." Klopp said.
Salah tested positive for COVID-19 and was forced to miss the two matches against Togo in 2021 Africa Cup of Nations Qualifiers.
Klopp added “"As always in these cases, the moment you have a negative test then the process really starts. He's in a good place, he feels well, no symptoms. That's all fine.”
Liverpool are having a tough situation as they enter the match against Leicester City on Sunday without many key players like Salah, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Jordan Henderson, Andrew Robertson and Virgil Van Dijk.
