Mo Salah Tests Positive For COVID-19 After Attending Wedding

Mo Salah has tested positive for COVID-19.

Salah was recently seen dancing at his brother's wedding and now the Egyptian FA have confirmed the Liverpool star has contracted coronavirus in what is another huge blow for Jurgen Klopp.


In this international break, Klopp has already seen defender Joe Gomez suffer a serious knee injury in England training, forcing him to undergo surgery and place him on the sidelines for some time.

Salah is said to be asymptomatic but was the only one from the Egypt squad to test positive ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations games against Togo.


A statement read: "The medical swab conducted on the mission of our first national football team showed that our international player, Mohamed Salah, the star of Liverpool, was infected with the Coronavirus, after his test came positive ... although he does not suffer from any symptoms..While the other members of the team were negative."

Premier League champions Liverpool will now be without their top scorer and talisman for the huge game against league leaders Leicester City at Anfield in eight days time.

Klopp has already expressed concern over players flying around the world in a global pandemic and will no doubt be livid with Salah becoming the latest player to test positive for COVID-19 on international duty.

On Wednesday, Croatia captain Domagoj Vida played 45 minutes against Turkey before finding out he had tested positive for coronavirus before the game - while Republic of Ireland midfielder Alan Browne's positive test has emerged after he played the full 90 minutes in Thursday's 3-0 defeat against England.
