Salah Recovers To Face Atalanta, Keita Injured - Klopp Confi

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has tested negative for coronavirus and can return to training ahead of second leg match against Serie A side, Atalanta while Naby Keita sustained a fresh injury before the Champions League return.

AllNews reported earlier that Salah tested positive for the COVID-19 while on international duty with Egypt.

"That's what I've heard, a negative," Klopp said. "I think from now on he is pretty normal in all the testing. On Monday, we have UEFA testing and I am pretty sure he will be in that.

"He can train with us. There are two tests in the next two days so he will be tested."

Klopp also confirmed midfielder Naby Keita had sustained a hamstring injury against Leicester, joining defenders Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, and Trent Alexander-Arnold on the injury list.

Keita was withdrawn after 53 minutes and replaced by Neco Williams.

"He (Keita) felt his hamstring and was not able to play on, otherwise he would have stayed on the pitch," Klopp said.

Liverpool faces Atalanta in the Champions League on Wednesday.
