Mohamed Salah

Liverpool aim to block Mohamed Salah from joining up with Egypt next week.

According to The Mirror,  Liverpool look set to refuse to allow Salah to join-up with the Egyptian national team for their home World Cup qualifier with Angola at the start of next month.

The Pharaohs are due to play Angola in Cairo on September 2, before travelling to Gabon for a game three days later.

Salah was named his national side’s captain back in 2019 and has scored 45 goals in 70 appearances since his debut 10 years ago.

However, the Reds will block Salah playing in the first of their two games next month – thanks to confusion over quarantine rules upon his return.

Egypt are currently on the Government’s red list, meaning anybody returning would need to carry out a period of isolation before they are able to return.
