Klopp confirms Salah's return for Liverpool's Europa League clash

Posted : 14 March 2024

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp expressed confidence in forward Mohamed Salah's readiness to start in the upcoming clash against Sparta Prague in the Europa League last-16 tie. Salah, who hasn't featured as a starter for Liverpool since January 1 due to a hamstring injury sustained while playing for Egypt in the Africa Cup of Nations, has been deemed fit by Klopp. While the manager acknowledges Salah might not be prepared for a full 90 minutes, he affirmed that the Egyptian international is primed to begin the match.


Despite Liverpool holding a commanding 5-1 lead following their resounding victory in the first leg in the Czech Republic, Klopp remains cautious, emphasizing the importance of not underestimating their opponents. He highlights the need to maintain focus and intensity, stressing the significance of consistent performance over the course of the game. Klopp is particularly mindful of Sparta Prague's capabilities, citing their earlier performance against Liverpool and the challenges they posed.


Salah, Liverpool's top scorer this season with 19 goals, sustained the hamstring injury during Egypt's match against Ghana. Although he made a cameo appearance and scored in Liverpool's subsequent win over Brentford, he then missed several matches, including the Carabao Cup final triumph against Chelsea. Klopp recognizes Salah's significance to the team and aims to ensure his consistent availability moving forward, especially considering the busy schedule ahead.


Looking beyond the immediate fixture, Klopp remains focused solely on the task at hand, dismissing any thoughts of the club's standing in other competitions. With Liverpool still in contention in multiple tournaments, Klopp stresses the importance of maintaining momentum and concentration, particularly given their ambitions in the Europa League. As he approaches the end of his tenure at Liverpool, Klopp's singular focus is on navigating each match successfully and advancing as far as possible in every competition.
