Liverpool forward, Mohamed Salah played in the Champions League final despite his fitness issues, the Egypt national team doctor has said. He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, Salah’s injury happened during the FA Cup final in the adductor muscles, then he played against Wolves and in the Champions League final, and all of this in the space of 14 days.
The doctor added that Salah is the second highest player in terms of minutes played this season, so his form was bound to be affected.
His words, “Salah’s injury occurred during the FA Cup final in the adductor muscles, then he played against Wolves and in the Champions League final, and all of this in just 14 days.”
“We read a statistic that he’s the second highest player in terms of minutes played this season.”
“We send and receive players with medical reports, and Liverpool’s said that he had pain and should get an x-ray, there’s not a 100% fit player, but there’s the question of whether he can push himself and play without risk.”
“The club thought that one game is enough and we chose the Guinea game because the second against Ethiopia would be hard for him to travel in a long flight. He couldn’t play another game after three days.”
