- Mohamed Salah will return to training after testing negative for coronavirus
- The Liverpool superstar contracted the disease while on international duty with Egypt
- The Reds without Salah defeat Leicester City and moved joint-top on the Premier League
Mohamed Salah has tested negative for the coronavirus disease and Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has confirmed he would return to training on Monday, November 23, 2020.
The 28-year-old tests positive for COVID-19 while he was on international duty with Egypt and after partying at his brother's wedding.
Arsenal's Egyptian midfielder Mohamed Elneny also tested positive for the virus on international duty with Salah.
However, Klopp revealed that his star player will resume training ahead of their Champions League clash with Serie A side Atalanta.
"I heard that Salah has tested negative. We have UEFA testing, he will be in that, he can now train with the rest of the squad."
Salah was not available for Liverpool's 2-0 win over Leicester City at Anfield and it did not look as if the former Premier League topscorer was missed.
Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Diogo Jota were a handful for the Foxes defence as they were 3-0 comfortable winners on the night.
Jota has scored in all of his four matches at Anfield and has fitted into Klopp's attacking style of play following his £45million summer move from Wolves.
Liverpool are now joint-top of the Premier League table with Tottenham after playing the same number of matches.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Liverpool move joint-top of the Premier League table following a convincing 3-0 win over Leicester City at Anfield.
An own goal from Johny Evans and a goal each from Diogo Jota as well as Roberto Firmoino was enough to equal their unbeaten streak at Anfield to 64 matches.
It did not look like Liverpool had most of their players out through injury as they started the match with fireworks.
Legit.ng had earlier reported that Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah who initially went on international break had tested positive for coronavirus.
Salah’s development is a huge blow to the entire Liverpool squad that is already depleted following a number of injury cases that have plagued the club recently.
Confirming Salah’s coronavirus case, the English FA announced that the 28-year-old produced a positive result upon return to England.
