Mo Salah

Salah okay after heavy challenge

Jurgen Klopp was furious with the tackle that saw the Liverpool forward hobble out of the 2-1 Premier League win, secured by James Milner's stoppage-time penalty, saying: "I cannot get over the Choudhury yellow card. He should know better."

Omnisport understands the Egypt international has had a scan, which revealed no serious damage.

Salah has not been included in Egypt's squad for their forthcoming friendly against Botswana, while the Reds now face an anxious wait to see if he will recover in time for the Premier League clash with Manchester United on October 20.

Salah signs new Liverpool deal

According to multiple reports, the deal runs until 2023 and contains no release clause.

Despite only joining from Roma just over a year ago, Liverpool have rewarded Salah following a sensational debut season on Merseyside that saw him finish with 44 goals in 52 appearances.

The Egypt international secured the Premier League Golden Boot, finding the net 32 times to finish ahead of Tottenham's Harry Kane with a new competition record for goals in a 38-game season.

Salah rejects talk of Egypt rift

Egypt's fate was confirmed on Wednesday as Uruguay beat Saudi Arabia 1-0 to ensure both the South American nation and hosts Russia will progress to the last 16 from Group A.

Having watched a 1-0 defeat to Uruguay from the bench, Salah made his first appearance since suffering an injury in the Champions League final as Egypt's hopes were all but ended in a 3-1 loss to Russia on Tuesday.

Salah rehab to take him to Spain

The Liverpool star went off in tears after half an hour of his side's 3-1 Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid, having hurt his shoulder when falling awkwardly under a challenge from Sergio Ramos on Saturday.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said the problem looked "really serious" and, although he was eager to wait for tests, he admitted Salah's prospects of going to Russia were in jeopardy.

The Egyptian FA have since moved to calm fears he will miss the World Cup, claiming tests have shown the injury is not as bad as first suspected.

Salah is 'definitely' world's best

Salah has had a sensational first season on Merseyside, scoring 44 goals in all competitions and claiming the Premier League's Golden Boot with 32.

Those performances have seen the Egypt international scoop the Premier League's Player of the Season award and the PFA Players' Player of the Year prize, while he has also been mentioned as a future Ballon d'Or candidate.

And Lovren believes Salah deserves to be in the reckoning for football's top individual honour, putting him alongside Ronaldo and Barcelona star Lionel Messi.

Salah's boots on display at the British Museum

The Egypt international has impressed this season, winning the Premier League golden boot with a record 32 goals.

His boots will go on display in the run up to Liverpool's Champions League final match against Real Madrid.

"The boots tell a story of a modern Egyptian icon, performing in the UK, with a truly global impact," said exhibit keeper Neal Spencer.

"This acquisition builds on our recent project to acquire objects to tell the story of day-to-day life in 20th and 21st century Egypt."

Salah a Ballon d'Or contender, says Lovren

Salah's spectacular season continued on Tuesday, scoring twice and setting up two others to lead Liverpool to a 5-2 win over Roma in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final.

The Egypt international has netted 43 goals in 47 games in all competitions in his first campaign at Anfield.

Lovren said those performances meant Salah should be among the main contenders for the Ballon d'Or alongside Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

"He is the one. He is becoming the superstar. It looks easy what he does but it is very difficult," Lovren told UK newspapers.
