Klopp makes a decision regarding Mo Salah

An English press report, today, Wednesday, revealed Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp’s position on fielding his Egyptian star, Mohamed Salah, against Sparta Prague.

Liverpool will host its counterpart, Sparta Prague, tomorrow, Thursday, at Anfield Stadium, in the second leg of the round of 16 of the Europa League, noting that the first leg ended with a victory for the Reds (5-1).

According to the British Liverpool Echo network, Klopp is considering resting several major stars, especially in light of the result of the big first-leg match, and the almost guarantee of qualification.

The newspaper added that Klopp is considering not starting many senior players, led by Mohamed Salah, in preparation for the match against Manchester United in the FA Cup quarter-finals next Sunday.

The Reds’ lineup for tomorrow’s match may witness the appearance of third goalkeeper Adrian for the first time this season, and in front of him is Jarrell Quansah, Joe Gomez, Connor Bradley, and Kostas Tsimikas.

In the middle, James McConnell, Bobby Clarke and Harvey Elliott may be pushed.

The report indicated that Mohamed Salah has only participated in one match since the beginning of 2024, due to the injury he suffered with the Egyptian national team in the African Nations, with two matches as a substitute against Brentford and Manchester City.

Klopp fears that Salah’s injury will worsen during this sensitive period of the season, and therefore wants to rest him against Sparta Prague, especially after Liverpool asked the Egyptian national team not to summon the player to the camp this March.
