Mohamed Salah scored a penalty in the 1-1 draw with Manchester City last time

Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah has tested positive for corona virus in an international outing with Egypt.

The Egyptian Football Association (EFA) said Friday that 28-year-old Salah returned a positive test but is showing no symptoms.

It later added that Salah went through a second test that confirmed he had Covid-19.

“Salah has a high spirit and is not showing any symptoms of the virus,” the EFA said in a statement.

It was said that the other members of the team had tested negative.

Egypt will host Togo in the qualifier for the African Nations Cup on Saturday, followed by the second leg in Togo on Tuesday.

Salah will now self-isolate and could miss Liverpool’s next two games.

The Reds will host Leicester in the Premier League on Sunday 22nd November, followed by a Champions League tie against Atalanta on Wednesday 25th November.

Salah has started all eight Premier League games in Liverpool this season, scoring eight goals.
