Mohamed Salah ruled out for Barcelona clash

    Mohamed Salah won’t be featuring Liverpool squad to face Barcelona on Tuesday, according to the Reds boss Jurgen Klopp

    The 26-year-old sustained a concussion during the Merseysiders’ 3-2 Premier League win over Newcastle United at St. James’ Park last weekend and will have to remain on the sidelines at midweek.

    It will be a daunting prospect for Liverpool to overturn a three-goal deficit from the first leg, considering Roberto Firmino and Naby Keita will also skip the encounter due to injuries.

    Speaking of the Egyptian’s physical condition in the build-up to this massive Champions League showdown, former Borussia Dortmund manager has said: “Salah cannot play tomorrow. He is better in his recovery, but he cannot play tomorrow.

    “Precaution? No, it’s a concussion, which means he is not allowed to play. He feels OK, but it is not good enough from a medical point of view.”

    Klopp’s choice to leave ex-AS Roma star out of the squad probably means Liverpool will fully focus on their Premier League title run-in with Manchester City.

    The Reds welcome Wolverhampton Wanderers to Anfield for the final Premier League matchday next Sunday hoping they can clinch the first league title in 29 years.
