- As confirmed by the Egyptian Football Association, Mohamed Salah, the Liverpool star forward, has returned positive yet another time for the Covid-19 test.
- He is going to miss at least the next two matches for Liverpool.
As announced today by the Egyptian Football Association today, not only Salah, but Arsenal’s Mohamed Elneny has been tested positive for coronavirus once again. Salah, the 28 years old Liverpool forward was initially tested positive a few days ago but was asymptomatic, meaning he didn’t show any concerning symptoms.
It was last Friday when this happened and Mohamed Salah missed Egypt’s qualifier of Africa Cup of Nations against Togo. Three days later, on Monday, Elneny too was tested positive. For the next 10 days, Salah will have to self-isolate which translates into him not playing at least the next two games, against visiting Leicester City next Sunday and Atlanta on Wednesday. As of this moment, it’s not entirely clear whether he will be allowed to fly back to the UK after the UK government mandated 10 days isolation period is over or he will have to test negative for coronavirus.
The news of Salah being positive for the Covid-19 test came last week after he had to attend his brother’s wedding. The social media was flooded with pictures and videos where Mohamed Salah was seen dancing with guests, naturally, he was heavily criticized.
Liverpool will now have to do without five of their crew members this weekend, Thiago, Fabinho, Andy Robertson, and Jordan Henderson. Salah is the fifth player to have been infected with the coronavirus this season. Thiago, Tsimikas, Shaqiri, and Sadio Mane all have been tested positive before him, the blows just keep on coming for the Reds.
With eight goals, Mohamed Salah is currently the joint leading goal scorer in the Premier League, scoring in all of the eight matches. Also, he scored a total of 13 times this season for the Reds in 13 appearances.
