Jurgen Klopp has spoken out concerning Mohamed Salah attending a large-scale wedding ceremony in Egypt, after which the forward tested positive for coronavirus, and does not have a problem with his star man.
During the international break the Egyptian attended his brother’s wedding and was seen on camera dancing, socialising with numerous guests and not observing social distancing.
Salah later returned a positive coronavirus test, and has headed back to Merseyside via private jet for a period of recovery.
The Liverpool star is now set to miss his side’s crunch top-of-the-table clash with Leicester City on Sunday as a result, though Klopp has refused to publicly criticise Salah.
Speaking to reporters during his pre-match press conference on Friday, Klopp said: ‘’He is probably back today. In close contact and how it always is.
‘’He’s in a good place, feels well. No symptoms. Nothing to say in public about [the wedding].’’
The Reds must now face Brendan Rodgers’ high-flying side with a multitude of absences throughout their ranks.
