Mo Salah anxious for quick Liverpool return | Jurgen Klopp

Jurgen Klopp says Mo Salah could play against Leicester on Thursday.

Salah was part of the Egypt side at the Africa Cup of Nations, where they experienced an agonising penalty shootout loss to Senegal in the final on Sunday.

Despite a gruelling schedule over the last month at international level, Klopp insists their star attacker is keen for a swift return to club duty.

“Mo is now back, I spoke already to him. He is very disappointed of course, but looking forward to all the things coming up here now.

“I spoke to him and pretty much the first thing Mo told me was: ‘I’m ready.’

“He is an experienced player, he is a physical monster, to be honest, so we have to see.

"He will obviously have a little recovery session today and we will see how he feels tomorrow and from there we go.

“The proper plan we don’t have, play him as often and as long as possible is probably the plan, but we will not rush it.

"But if he is fine we will not leave him out for the wrong reasons as well, so let’s see.”

Meanwhile, the German also confirmed that he has virtually a clean bill of health.

Alex Oxlade Chamberlain and Joe Gomez are both back in training following periods of isolation.

Chamberlain sustained an ankle injury against Brentford last month.

“Not that I know of in the moment, but we are not too far away from training at this moment so I should know [soon]. But, no.

“Oxlade and Joe are back in training, which is good – they had COVID last week.

“In the next few days and weeks, we here at Liverpool will have probably all had it and that’s then at least something good in that.

"But no, no new injuries or anything like that.”
