Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp has finally reacted after his star forward, Mohammed Salah tested positive for COVID-19.
Salah who was away on international duty with Egypt tested positive for the virus on Nov 13 after attending his brother’s wedding where safety measures were not adhered to.
The former Chelsea man missed Egypt’s African Cup of Nations matches due to the infection and is set to miss Liverpool’s clash against Leicester City on Sunday.
“Mo is back today (Friday),” said Klopp. “We’re obviously in close contact with him all the time.
“As always in these cases, the moment you have a negative test then the process really starts. He’s in a good place, he feels well, no symptoms. That’s all fine.
“The other thing (Salah attending his brother’s wedding), there is absolutely nothing to say in public. All the things I have to talk to my players about is not for the public.
“What I can tell you is I was in Germany for the summer and a friend of mine moved his birthday party because he knew I was back. Fifty people attended but I decided at the last minute not to go.
“That was only a birthday party and it was allowed in Germany at the time. It was outside, all that stuff, but I didn’t go.
“That’s only one situation. In other countries and situations, there is more social pressure on you.
“A brother’s wedding is a very special moment. What I can say is our players, they are very incredibly disciplined. They really know about the situation.
“Sometimes it doesn’t work out and something happens. Now we’re in the situation we are in.
“All the rest is just between Mo and me, and we have done that already. Things are fine.”
Liverpool will be without a number of first-team players who are out with injuries including, Jordan Henderson, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Andy Robertson, Joe Gomez and Virgil van Dijk.
Klopp hopes Fabinho will be fit again after missing the last three matches with a hamstring injury. [Sky Sports]
