Mohamed Salah Returned To Liverpool Training After Benefitting From Coronavirus Quarantine 'Loophole'

Mohamed Salah Returned To Liverpool Training After Benefitting From Coronavirus Quarantine 'Loophole'

Mohamed Salah returned to Liverpool training after the club benefitted from a coronavirus quarantine 'loophole'.

He then returned a second positive test on November 18, forcing him to miss Sunday's [November 22] 3-0 win over Leicester City. Manager Klopp revealed after the game Salah had returned a negative test that day.

Premier League guidelines state a player cannot take part in training or play until 10 days after a positive test, but The Sun claim those lines have been 'blurred' so the 10 day period counts from the initial positive test.

It means that Salah was available for training on Monday [November 23], rather than Saturday [November 28] and is in contention for tonight's Champions League clash with Atalanta.

This contradicts government rules which state quarantine should commence from each individual test rather than the first.

Current UK law reads: "If you have symptoms, the ten days starts from when they started. If you have not had symptoms, the ten days starts from when you had the test."

Liverpool have not broken any rules, but it does mean the Premier League could come under scrutiny as Appendix 14 of their regulations stress players need to follow government guidelines.
