Jurgen Klopp addresses how Liverpool will deal with Mohamed Salah’s absence in January

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has detailed the Reds’ plans to play without Mohamed Salah after the game against Newcastle in January. The King of Egypt is leaving to join Egypt’s national team for the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).

AFCON starts on January 13 and ends on February 11. If Egypt reach the final, Salah could miss eight games. The 31-year-old has been in outstanding form this season to help United challenge for the Premier League title. So far he has appeared in 26 matches in all competitions, scoring 16 goals and providing 8 assists.

Klopp (Liverpool’s official website):”The long-term plans we have depend on who is available, so I don’t know who will be available. Why would you think anyone would be available in October without Mo? “We will find a solution today and hopefully we will find one after the Newcastle game.””It’s not the first time, at least losing a scorer is a very common situation. But when Sadio and Mo left we were in a worse situation and somehow we got over it for good.” This makes the tournament worse.”

He continued:”We have to overcome this problem. So we knew that the Africa Cup of Nations would occasionally happen and Mo would have to go. That was always clear. We now have an Asian Cup participant with Endo. “We knew that and now we have to deal with it and we will.”Meanwhile, Manchester United will be without Wataru Endo, who will captain Japan at the Asian Cup in January.
