Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp's statements on Friday regarding Salah's injury "made matters worse," as the level of uncertainty rose and anxiety increased among Liverpool fans.

What did Klopp say?

During a press conference on Friday, Klopp indicated that Salah will definitely not participate in the team’s match against Nottingham Forest, on Saturday, in the English Premier League.

Klopp said: “Mo Salah is not far from returning, but he will definitely not participate in tomorrow’s match.”

Klopp described the current situation as “acting according to the development of the situation,” which increases the ambiguity about Salah’s injury and his expected period of absence.

Klopp added with continued ambiguity: “Maybe he will return next week. He is on his way back to recovery, but certainly not tomorrow.”

The biggest concern is Salah's absence from the Premier League summit, between Liverpool and Manchester City, exactly 10 days later.

What happened to Mohamed Salah?

Salah fell on the field during the Egyptian national team's match against Ghana, in the African Cup of Nations in Côte d'Ivoire, on January 18.

Salah left the national team, and it was confirmed that he suffered a hamstring injury.

Salah returned with Liverpool on February 17, against Brentford, and played a full half and scored a goal, but after the match, it was confirmed that the injury had worsened, and that he was not ready to return.

Until now, there is uncertainty surrounding Mohamed Salah’s injury status and the development of the injury, as Liverpool FC has not shared any developments about Salah’s progress in the treatment process.

This ambiguity has begun to raise dissatisfaction among Liverpool fans, who rely a lot on Salah, especially since the team leads the Premier League by a point behind rival Manchester City.

The hope is now that Salah will return against Manchester City, or participate before that, next Thursday, in the Europa League tournament, against Sparta Prague, Czech Republic.
