Mohamed Salah will be assessed on Monday before taking a call for Barcelona game.

Jurgen Klopp was dealt with a huge blow when Liverpool’s star Mohamed Salah was forced to be stretched off the pitch against Newcastle United on Saturday. The Egyptian collided with Martin Dubravka and the shot-stopper claimed that Salah did not respond to him when he was lying on the pitch.

Speaking in the post-match interview, Dubravka said “I don’t know if he was out for five or six seconds because Fabian (Schar) asked him if he was all right and he didn’t answer him. So in that moment we were a little bit scared if he was okay.

“I felt sorry for him but I was just focused on the ball. Sometimes you can’t watch everything. I didn’t hit him with my hand, I didn’t punch him. It might have been my hip. I wasn’t sure if it was me or someone else.

“But I went to him to say sorry. I wasn’t trying to injure him. I’m not that kind of guy.”

There was a huge round of applause at St. James Park when he was taken off wishing him the fast recovery and Jurgen Klopp claimed that Salah watched the remainder of the game in the dressing room easing some pressure amongst the supporters.

Since the head is critical to one’s stability, Mohamed Salah will be assessed by the club’s doctor on Monday, according to the reliable Liverpool echo. They will take a huge call if he would be able to participate in the second leg against FC Barcelona in the Champions League Semifinals.

Club doctor Andy Massey said that they are yet to determine if he suffered a concussion on Saturday. If he had suffered a concussion, he is likely not to be included in the squad list.

Albeit all these news, reports from Egypt claim that Mohamed Salah will not be allowed to participate on Tuesday as a part of precaution.
