The return date for injured Liverpool striker Mohammed Salah is still unlikely, and the club is seriously thinking about it.
Salah was taken off in the second half of Liverpool’s win over Manchester City and has withdrawn from Egypt’s latest squad over the ongoing problem.
He was pictured wearing a protective boot as he sat out a training session in Cairo before returning to Liverpool for further treatment.
According to Sky Sports News, Salah has been allowed to train away from Melwood to continue his rehabilitation and he will receive an extended period of time off during the international break.
Salah has continued to struggle with the injury he suffered against Leicester on October 5 under a heavy challenge from Hamza Choudhury.
He has since scored goals against Genk, Tottenham and Manchester City but is still not back at 100%, leading to him looking to get back to full fitness in the international break.
Now, everyone at Liverpool is hopeful that he gets back before their next match against Crystal Palace set for November 23.
They even wish that the international break could extend to allow the Egyptian footballer to heal completely.
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp recently discussed Salah’s injury, stating: “I think it is more really annoying – for him, not me – the fact that it always has a bit of fluid in, and he has to deal with it, we get it out and it comes back, and stuff like that.”
Meanwhile, full-back Andy Robertson is also an injury concern ahead of their trip to Selhurst Park. He has pulled out of the Scotland squad for their upcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers against Kazakhstan and Cyprus.
The Scotland skipper left Anfield on Sunday, after the 3-1 win over Manchester City, with a swollen ankle but had hoped to be fit to lead Steve Clarke’s side.
However, the injury has proven sufficient enough for him to withdraw from the Scotland squad.
