The terrible news for the Egyptian national team and Merseyside after the injury of the Pharaoh Mohamed Salah has been the worst news in a long time, as his injury comes at a very difficult time for the Reds who will be looking to stay at the top of the Premier League, as well as being absent during Egypt's participation in AFCON, being the most sensitive loss for both squads.

The Pharaoh's transfer to Merseyside was quickly called for, which has generated a lot of criticism from Egypt fans, as it was seen as a bad thing for Mohamed Salah to leave midway through the international tournament with the Pharaohs' national team. However, this has now been cleared up, with both parties agreeing that it would be in the player's best interests to take up his rehabilitation at Liverpool.

Pep Lijnders, assistant coach to Jürgen Klopp, told the Daily Mail: "We decided to bring him back to give him the best possible chance of playing in the final, if Egypt reach the final. The controversy continues, however, as Portuguese coach Rui Vitoria criticised Klopp's actions in prematurely discussing Salah's injury before Egypt's match against Cape Verde.

This has undoubtedly sparked speculation about Salah's performance, with former Egypt star Ahmed Hassan also criticising Salah's departure, saying it would have been better for Salah to stay in Côte d'Ivoire, where the AFCON is taking place. Despite this, Mohamed Salah only hopes he can recover to continue helping his team and his national team, as Lijnders said that if he makes a speedy recovery he could return for the final of the African Cup, if Egypt advance.

Pep Lijnders' words that make it clear who Mohamed Salah is

In the face of much criticism over the Mohamed Salah case, Klopp's assistant Pep Lijnders also made a strong defence of Salah's actions, stating: "You should never doubt Mo Salah's commitment. I have never met anyone more committed to being a footballer," said Lijnders. Which is undoubtedly a great truth, as Salah is not a player who is quick to give up, as well as turning up at important moments for both his national team and the Reds.
