Liverpool fans are extremely concerned after watching Mohamed Salah suffer an injury during AFCON

Liverpool fans are concerned after Mohamed Salah was forced off injured in Egypt’s Africa Cup Of Nations game against Ghana.

The attacker was forced off on the stroke of half-time during Egypt’s AFCON match against Ghana and appeared to point to his hamstring while trudging to the bench.

Salah suffering an injury while away from Anfield was always considered the worst-case scenario for Liverpool supporters when the player headed off to AFCON earlier this month.

And on Thursday evening they responded with great concern after the 31-year-old was withdrawn from his heavyweight international encounter.

Writing on X, formally Twitter, one person said: “I didn’t even think Salah could be injured.”

Another wrote: “Salah hamstring injury. Hopefully, it’s not a serious one. Gutted for him.”

A third said: “Hopefully won’t be a long one. Internationals are never frigging kind to us.”

Meanwhile one optimistic supporter said: “The last time Salah had a hamstring injury, Liverpool ended up winning the league.”

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp will also be devastated to potentially be losing his talisman to injury.

Ahead of the tournament Klopp joked that he wanted Salah, who has scored 18 goals in all competitions this season, to be eliminated from the tournament as soon as possible and return to Liverpool duty.

“I said if I wish you good luck it would be a lie,” Klopp explained ahead of Liverpool’s FA Cup third-round tie against Arsenal.

“From a personal point of view, I would be happy if they go out in the group stage but that’s probably not possible. They can go on and win it.

“So it was ‘Good luck and come back healthy’. We have to deal with it and we will deal with it. I am pretty positive that we will find a way.”
