Liverpool star Mohamed Salah has tested positive for Covid-19.
The Egyptian is on international duty where he was due to play against Togo in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier on Saturday evening in Cairo.
A statement from the Egyptian FA on Twitter read: “The medical swab conducted… showed that our international player, Mohamed Salah, the star of Liverpool, was infected with the coronavirus, after his test came positive . Although he does not suffer from any symptoms. While the other members of the team were negative.”
The news will be another blow to Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, who lost Sadio Mane and summer signing Thagio to positive tests earlier this season, after defender Joe Gomez was ruled out potentially for the season having picked up an injury while on international duty with England.
