Mohamed Salah

My reading on this is that the mention of the final is just to keep Egyptian fans happy. Klopp learning his lesson regarding African Twitter and his ironic comments about AFCON.

If that was truly the case there would be no need for him to return. 

My reading is that the injury is serious enough to warrant "professional" treatment - so much so that the club feels the need to begin immediately - and there is very little chance of him being ready for any final, otherwise why leave at all?

 

In my mind he's leaving because its's always better to be back with your day-to-day club doctor as the injury is a minimum of 2-3 weeks it makes no sense to leave him in Africa when he can be back at his club in hours. 

 

Also, while not saying it out loud, the club will be aware that there is a slim chance of Egypt getting to a semi or final so get him home now and assess and get him fit and chances are he's not going back anyway.

 

But as I say, I guess it depends on your point of view. You could be right and he's fucked.  But hopefully it's the former.

It makes no sense for him to be with Egypt whose full focus is on Afcon tournament. He is going to be sitting there gutted watching his team mates struggle.

 

We have the people to look after him, he knows that, Egypt knows that so its a good thing he is back. Hopefully he can heal quickly and come back soon.

Maybe Salah realised after the first group game that Egypt were shit and have no chance of winning the tournament so feigned an injury just to get back here to concentrate on actually winning stuff instead? 

 

Feigned an injury so he could not play for his country where he is idolized and revered as a national treasure because the national team may not win the continental tournament? he would really have to be a cunt of the first order to do that.

It suits everybody. He’d probably prefer to be back with his family while getting treatment rather than hang around a training camp with little likelihood of playing again in the competition.

I like how we have gone about this and have got him coming back.

 

He is our employee who we pay millions to and paid millions for and who we will be relying on for the rest of a season where we are fighting on 4 fronts - we should be 100% in control of his situation when he is hurt.

Goals and assists this season:

 

Salah 21

Nunez 20

Jota 14

Gakpo 12

Diaz 7

 

Great haul overall, though we should really be finding a way for Gakpo to start ahead of Diaz, who still looks a bit off the pace to me

He does have previous for that, when he looked at Klopp’s suicidal tactics and went off “injured” in the final against Madrid.
