Liverpool star Mohamed Salah is heading back to Merseyside, after picking up a muscle problem in Egypt’s 4-1 win over Swatini which ruled him out of another match against the same opposition next week.
The 26-year-old, who scored direct from a free-kick before being taking off on Friday, took to Instagram to share of photo of himself in an airport departure lounge waiting to fly back to England.
Salah looked glum as he rested his head on his hand and gazed down into the camera.
Neither Van Dijk nor Salah have yet been ruled out of Liverpool’s next game — away to Huddersfield on Saturday.
The pair are expected to take fitness tests ahead of the match, which could take the Reds top of the Premier League if results go their way.
