Liverpool Manager Confirms Possible Salah Return For Brentford Clash

Egyptian international and Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah is in line to feature against Brentford in the Premier League on Saturday, manager Jurgen Klopp said on Friday.

Salah, 31, who is the league’s second-highest goal scorer this season with 14 goals, had picked up a hamstring injury during the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament in January.

Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp.

“Mo (Salah) is back in full training, so that brings him back into contention,” Klopp told reporters ahead of his side’s trip to west London.

“Ibou (Ibrahima Konate) is not suspended anymore, Joey (Joe Gomez) is fit again, Conor (Bradley) is back, Ali (Alisson Becker) is back, so that’s all positive. Thiago (Alcantara), no. And Trent not (available).”

Klopp was full of praise for their next opponents Brentford and shared a few words.

“It is super tricky there. They are well organised, set-pieces, cheeky, rhythm breaks and they are good at set-pieces which they want. That’s how it is,” Klopp said.

“They are more than just set-pieces. They are compact. They are well coached and the atmosphere the stadium creates is really good. We have to be at our best to win at Brentford. It’s a smart coached team.”
