Mohamed Salah set for return after negative Covid-19 test

Mohamed Salah has tested negative for coronavirus and will resume training with Liverpool on Monday.

The Egyptian missed the Reds’ 3-0 win over Leicester on Sunday evening after testing positive for Covid-19 during the international break.

‘I heard this (that Salah was negative). Tomorrow (Monday) we have UEFA testing, he will be in that, he can now train with us,” Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp said.

‘There are two tests scheduled in the next two days so he will be tested like all of us.’

Despite his absence against Leicester on Sunday night, Liverpool were comfortable 3-0 winners against Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester, who were top before this weekend.

The news will come as a significant boost to the Reds boss, who saw Naby Keita join a growing injury list on Sunday. Keita lasted just 53 minutes against Leicester before suffering a hamstring issue, which will be assessed at Kirkby.
