Liverpool winger, Mohammed Salah has tested positive for COVID-19, as confirmed by the Egyptian FA while he was on Egypt International duty.
AllNews understands that Salah will be the third player in Liverpool's first team while he will be the fifth player to be absent in the coming weeks after Trent Alexandre Arnold, Joe Gomez, Van Dijk, Fabinho.
The announcement will add to the list of worries of Jurgen Klopp as his team grows thin with days.
The Egyptian FA said on Twitter Salah had returned a positive test, although the 28-year-old is not showing any symptoms.
