The Egyptian national team says they remain ‘optimistic’ that Mohamed Salah will be fit to play in the World Cup this summer despite leaving the Champions League final in tears with a suspected dislocated shoulder.
The Liverpool and Egypt attacker landed awkwardly on his shoulder after a tangle with Sergio Ramos and was unable to continue as the Reds went on to fall to a 3-1 defeat.
But despite Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp believing it was a ‘serious’ injury after the match, the national team revealed they retain optimism having discovered he has only sprained his shoulder joint.
It is impossible to quantify Salah’s importance to Egypt and their desperation to have him in their ranks was encapsulated by a tweet they published late on Saturday night, which came from the Egypt national team’s account.
“The elected team doctor Dr. Mohammed Abu Alaa has been told by Liverpool’s medical team following an X-Ray that Salah has a sprained shoulder joint and had his shoulders wrapped,” the post read.
“The Dr is optimistic of Salah’s chances of joining the national team for the World Cup.”
