AFCON: He’s most loyal Egyptian – Klopp defends Salah

Share This

Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp has defended the decision for Mohamed Salah to return to Liverpool from the Africa Cup of Nations.

Klopp also hit back at critics questioning the forward’s loyalty to Egypt.

Salah flew back to the UK on Wednesday to begin an “intensive rehabilitation programme” after picking up a hamstring injury in their 2-2 draw with Ghana last Thursday.

The 31-year-old was initially ruled out for two matches, but his agent Ramy Abbas later revealed the player is set to spend several weeks on the sidelines.

Four-time AFCON winner, Ahmed Hassan, insisted that Salah, who is the captain of the Pharaohs, should remain with his country under any circumstance.

But Klopp, speaking after a 1-1 draw with Fulham on Wednesday night, said: “We are completely honest, and if I said something too early… what I said, I didn’t announce it, I said ‘I think it’s agreed’ that’s what I heard. I have so many things to do and so many things going on around me.

“The rest, some people make something out of it, and if somebody questions the loyalty of Mo Salah they should ask themselves if their loyalty is right, because Mo Salah is definitely the most loyal Egyptian I’ve met in my life.”
