It has been revealed that Liverpool will be without top scorer Mohamed Salah for Tuesday’s Champions League semi-final, the second leg against Barcelona.
According to the Agence France Presse, this was disclosed by the manager Jurgen Klopp, who revealed that Salah was concussed in a 3-2 win at Newcastle on Saturday.
The Egyptian was stretchered off at St James’ Park due to a head knock sustained as he challenged Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dubravka for a high ball.
“It’s a concussion so that means he would not even be allowed to play. So that’s it,” said Klopp at his pre-match press conference on Monday.
“He feels OK but it is not good enough from a medical point of view that is all. He’s desperate (to play) everything but we cannot do it.”
