More Liverpool’s woes were added as Mohammed Salah has tested positive for Covid-19 with the Egyptian FA confirming the news on Friday.
In a short statement released on Twitter, they said: ‘The medical swab conducted on the mission of our first national football team showed that our international player, Mohamed Salah, the star of Liverpool, was infected with coronavirus, after his test came positive, although he does not suffer from any symptoms.
‘Meanwhile the other members of the team were negative.’
The EFA said Salah was now isolating, and that he would be ‘subject to more checks in the coming hours’.
The positive test should not sideline him for too long, provided he remains asymptomatic or develops only mild symptoms.
Liverpool are not due to play again until their home Premier League match against Leicester on November 21.
Salah’s positive test comes just days after he attended the wedding of his brother Nasr held in the country’s capital of Cairo.
The 28-year-old wasn’t the only footballer at the wedding with Egypt team-mate Mahmoud Trezeguet, who plays for Aston Villa, was also in attendance.
In footage posted on social media, Salah can be seen wearing as he dances in a circle that contained dozens of people around him – with majority of this party not wearing a mask themselves.
