Liverpool FC manager, Jürgen Klopp, has confirmed that the shoulder injury Mohamed Salah sustained during Liverpool’s Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid on Saturday evening is ‘serious’.
According to club’s official website, the manager said this at his post-match conference.
“It’s a serious injury, a really serious injury.”
Salah’s night ended in the 29th minute after an earlier challenge with Sergio Ramos which saw him leave the pitch in tears.
“He is in the hospital for an X-ray. It’s either the collarbone or the shoulder itself. It doesn’t look good, that’s it.”
The Liverpool forward who scored 11 goals in this season’s UEFA champions league, recently set two new goal scoring records as the English Premier League (EPL) season ended two weeks ago.
He scored 32 league goals, the highest ever in a 38-match season.
The Egyptian also became the first player to score against 17 league teams in the same Premier League season.
