Mohamed Salah is to be sent for ‘radiation’ on the muscle injury he picked up in Egypt’s 4-1 win over Swaziland, but one of his coaches has played down the problem.
The Liverpool star limped off in the closing stages of the Africa Nations Cup qualifier victory in Cairo, which featured him scoring a goal directly from a corner on the stroke of half-time .
Salah was seen sitting on the ground in agony before being helped off the pitch, leaving the Pharaohs to complete the game with just 10 men.
But coach Hany Ramzy says it’s not a "big injury" and hopes Salah returns soon.
“The initial diagnosis confirmed that the injury is a muscle strain and there is no possibility of muscle rupture,” said Ramzy, as reported by Egyptian outlet Yallakora.
“The player needs to have radiation to determine the injury and the duration of his absence.
“It is not a big injury, we support him with all our energy and we hope he will return without being affected by an injury as soon as possible.”
Egypt face a return game with Swaziland on Tuesday, while Liverpool are next in Premier League action at Huddersfield next Saturday.
