Liverpool issue Mohamed Salah update after summer signing misses training due to illness

MOHAMED SALAH missed training this afternoon due to illness, Liverpool have confirmed.

The summer signing from Roma was allowed to skip practice ahead of tomorrow’s Champions League game against Sevilla as a “precaution”.

The club said in a statement: “Mohamed Salah missed Liverpool’s training session on Tuesday afternoon due to illness.

“The No.11 was absent as the Reds continued preparations for the opening game of their Champions League group-stage campaign, against Sevilla at Anfield on Wednesday night.

“Salah reported to Melwood but was sent home as a precaution.”

Jurgen Klopp will be hoping Salah is available for selection following Saturday’s mauling at Manchester City.

Salah, who was hooked off at half-time of the 5-0 drubbing, was raring to go face Sevilla.

He said: “We have to look forward to the next game, forget that result and play like before.

“I’m very, very excited to start the Champions League games at Anfield. I would like to win that game!”

Sadio Mane is eligible for selection as his red card against City does not extend to European competition.
