Liverpool star Mo Salah tests positive for coronavirus

Written by on 13/11/2020

Liverpool’s Mo Salah has tested positive for coronavirus, Egypt’s football association says.

Salah was due to play for his country in tomorrow’s African Cup of Nations qualifier against Togo.

The governing body said a medical swab taken from the 28-year-old came back positive for COVID-19, but the striker was not showing symptoms.

The EFA said Salah was now isolating, and that he would be “subject to more checks in the coming hours”.

Liverpool are not due to play again until their home Premier League match against Leicester on 21 November.

It’s the latest blow for the team, with news yesterday that Reds defender Joe Gomez underwent knee surgery following an injury suffered in England training.
