Salah could return within three weeks

 

By Robert Jones

Liverpool have confirmed that Mohamed Salah's recovery period is unlikely to exceed three weeks, further raising hope that the winger will feature for Egypt in next month's World Cup.

The Liverpool forward dislocated his shoulder in the Champions League final on Saturday after a tussle with Real Madrid's Sergio Ramos.

It had been touch and go whether he would be fit in time, with Egypt's first match against Uruguay coming in little over two weeks' time on June 15.

However, earlier this week the Egyptian FA said that they expect Salah to be fit for the finals after meeting with a specialist in Spain, but it is not clear if he will make that first game.

Liverpool yesterday reaffirmed the news that he "could feature" at the World Cup.

Arsenal's Switzerland midfielder Granit Xhaka could, however, be ruled out after hurting his knee during a training session yesterday. He was not taken to hospital, but was assessed and treated by the team doctors and will undergo an MRI scan as soon as possible.

The 25-year-old has struggled to win over the Arsenal fans since his move from Borussia Monchengladbach in 2016, but is an integral player for his country.

Switzerland are in a group with Brazil, Costa Rica and Serbia at the World Cup and play their first game of the tournament in Russia against five-time champions Brazil on June 17.
