Breaking: More headache for Liverpool ‘s Kloop as Salah contracts Coronavirus in Egypt

Liverpool’s Mo Salah has tested positive for coronavirus while on international duty with Egypt.

The forward, 28, is not suffering from any symptoms after returning a positive swab test, the Egyptian FA confirmed.

Salah was the only member of the Egyptian side to test positive in the African nation’s round of testing.

The news will come as another blow to Reds boss Jurgen Klopp as the German manager is already sweating on the fitness of defender Joe Gomez.

Gomez suffered a serious knee injury in England training and underwent ‘successful’ surgery on a tendon blow with Liverpool hopeful he will feature again this season.

The Premier League champions are facing a mounting injury crisis after Trent Alexander-Arnold pulled out of Three Lions duty with a calf problem.

The right-back sustained the injury during the 1-1 draw away at Manchester City and is expected to miss four weeks after being forced from the field.

Talismanic Dutch centre-back Virgil van Dijk is still months away from fitness after picking up an ACL injury in a controversial collision with England No1 Jordan Pickford.

Initial fears suggested Gomez might have sustained a similar injury.
