Jurgen Klopp says Liverpool forward has returned negative coronavirus test

Jurgen Klopp says Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah will take part in training on Monday after returning a negative test for coronavirus.

Salah was ruled out of Sunday’s 3-0 win over Leicester after testing positive for the virus while away on international duty with Egypt earlier this month.

The Liverpool manager confirmed Salah produced a negative test on Sunday prior to the Leicester match and the 28-year-old could rejoin the group on Monday after a 10-day quarantine period, having initially tested positive on November 13.

Salah will undergo further testing in the coming days, with Liverpool’s next match at home to Atalanta in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Speaking after the win over Leicester, Klopp said: “That’s what I’ve heard, a negative today.

“I think from now he is pretty normal in all the testing. Tomorrow we have UEFA testing and I am pretty sure he will be in that.

“He can train with us tomorrow. There are two tests in the next two days so he will be tested.”

Salah’s availability will come as a welcome boost for Klopp, who is already without a number of senior players through injury – including defenders Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Trent Alexander-Arnold.
