Salah injured his ankle during Leicester City's before the FIFA break, missing his side's game against Manchester United on Sunday, before meeting Genk in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp has made it clear that Salah was not ready to play against Manchester United in the Premier League on Sunday but could join Genk in the Champions League on Wednesday.

"Mohamed Salah was not ready," Klopp told Sky Sports on Sunday.

"He could not train with the team. I don't know where everyone came from about United."

"There was no chance of him playing on Sunday, maybe playing on Wednesday. We have to wait and see."

gypt and Liverpool forwarder Mohamed Salah was nominated for the 2019 Ballon d'Or award Monday.

France Football's 30-player shortlist also gathers Salah's teammates Sadio Mane, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Alisson Becker, Georginio Wijnaldum, Virgil van Dijk and Roberto Firmino.
