Klopp says Salah could return ‘next week’ for Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp has revealed that Mohamed Salah could return to training with Liverpool next week.

Salah is sidelined with a hamstring injury picked up at the Africa Cup of Nations last month, with the Egypt international ruled out of the tournament after his side’s 2-2 draw with Ghana.


The 31-year-old returned to Liverpool to step up his recovery and Klopp has revealed that Salah is making positive progress.

“He’s going in the right direction and we hope, but we don’t know, that he will be part of training next week but we will see,” Klopp said at his pre-match press conference ahead of facing Burnley.

“He’s going through his paces now but it’s positive. It will be next week or the week after. If you ask him, it will be next week!”

Klopp also provided an update on Conor Bradley, who has been given a period of leave after the death of the defender’s father. The Liverpool manager said the right-back will be given ‘as long as he needs’ before returning to action.

“Unavailable for the weekend. A mental state of a player is nothing you should discuss in public if you have any empathy.


“The boy gets as long as he needs with his family. Maybe next week he will be back in training and then we will see. If he’s not ready then we support him because there’s no rush.”
