Liverpool face losing Mohamed Salah for four months next season

Liverpool could lose Mohamed Salah for four months next season.

Egypt bosses still want the Liverpool star to play at the rescheduled Tokyo Olympics, which could move to next spring under radical IOC proposals, says The Sun.

The 2021 African Cup of Nations in Cameroon has already switched from the summer to next January and February – a move that Klopp labelled a “catastrophe".

The Reds could lose Salah, Senegal star Sadio Mane, Cameroon defender Joel Matip and Guinea midfielder Naby Keita for the African tournament.

And if Salah, 27, plays in both events there is the prospect he will be on international duty for several months.
