Mohamed Salah, has made a swift return to the UK for treatment on a posterior injury sustained during Egypt’s AFCON campaign.

Egyptian football star Mohamed Salah has returned to the United Kingdom for treatment on a posterior injury, as confirmed by the Egyptian Federation.

The Liverpool talisman sustained the injury during Egypt’s 2-2 draw with Ghana on January 18, initially diagnosed as a hamstring strain with a brief expected absence. However, subsequent assessments revealed a more severe issue, prompting Salah’s return to Liverpool for intensive rehabilitation.

Despite the initial hope for his return by the AFCON quarterfinals on February 2 and 3, conflicting reports emerged regarding the extent of Salah’s injury.

While the Egyptian Federation initially suggested a shorter recovery period, Salah’s representative, Ramy Abbas Issa, conveyed a more pessimistic outlook, estimating a 21-28 day recovery.

Sources at Liverpool aligned with Issa’s prognosis, indicating that Salah might miss the entire AFCON even if Egypt advances to the final on February 11.

The uncertainty surrounding Salah’s return has left the Egyptian national team unsure about his availability for the upcoming matches.

Egypt, having concluded their group stage in second place after a 2-2 draw with Cape Verde, are set to face the Democratic Republic of Congo in the knockout stage on Sunday.

The absence of Salah, a beloved figure in Egyptian football, adds an element of unpredictability to their AFCON journey, leaving fans and the team hopeful for a swift recovery for their star player.
