Mohamed Salah has not suffered a knee injury despite rumours that have done the rounds, according to Egypt national team doctor Mohamed El-Ela.

Liverpool’s new winger played for Egypt against Uganda in a 1-0 World Cup qualifying defeat on Thursday evening.

Suggestions that Salah suffered a knee injury have been dismissed.

According to Egypt’s team doctor Mohamed El-Ela, Salah is not injured but had a complaint as regards the turf they played on during Thursday’s qualifier.

The Reds’ no.11 will be fit to play for his country on Tuesday for the return match in Cairo against Uganda.

El-Ela said, “There is no injury to Salah, he is completely ready for the match.

“Salah complained only after the end of the Uganda match, it was just a complaint no more and no less, and he is not injured.

“The complaint of pain was due to the pitch of Uganda, there are many conversations about Salah’s injury, but there is no basis for it.

“Salah trained very naturally on Friday and Saturday, ready for the game. All the players are ready to face Uganda.”

This news will come as a relief for Jürgen Klopp as Liverpool face Manchester City next weekend at the Etihad and Salah is already a key component of his front three.

With two goals and one assist already for the Reds, Salah has made sure that his £36.9 million price tag will be paid back in full in no time at all.
