Mohamed Salah, the 31-year-old Liverpool player, will be returning to his club after sustaining a hamstring injury at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations. The injury is expected to keep Salah out of play until the end of the month. Despite his injury, the Egyptian team is still searching for their first win in the tournament. Salah had a successful performance in the opening game, scoring a goal and assisting another in a 2-2 draw against Mozambique. However, he was unable to continue playing in the subsequent game against the Black Stars.
According to the Egypt Football Association, Salah will now travel to England for treatment. The statement released by the association expressed hope that Salah will rejoin the national team if they qualify for the semi-finals. Salah’s return to Liverpool for treatment is confirmed by the association. The winger has been an integral part of the team, having made his debut for Egypt in 2011. He is just four appearances away from reaching a milestone of a hundred games for his country.
Salah’s impressive record for Egypt includes 54 goals and 32 assists, as reported by Transfermarkt. He has been a valuable asset for the national team, contributing to their success over the years. The injury setback is undoubtedly disappointing, but Salah’s return to Liverpool for treatment indicates the seriousness with which the club and national team are approaching his recovery.
