Mohamed Salah may have played his last game for Egypt and Gary Neville has predicted Liverpool supporters could turn on owners FSG once Jurgen Klopp leaves the club
Liverpool’s Egyptian forward Mohamed Salah may have played his last game for the Pharaohs.
Since the arrival of Fenway Sports Group in 2010, Liverpool have embarked on a tremendous journey which led to a UEFA Champions League victory in 2019 and a Premier League title win in 2020 under the superb management of Jurgen Klopp. But former Manchester United defender Gary Neville has said that once the German leaves Anfield, fans will turn on the club’s owners.
The Reds return to Premier League action on Saturday and could do so without three key first-team players.
Here are Mirror Football’s latest Liverpool headlines.
Can Liverpool beat Man City on April 10 without Alexander-Arnold in their side? Let us know what you think in the comments section below.
Salah drops hint on future
Mohamed Salah has endured a difficult few months on the international stage for Egypt.
Firstly, the Liverpool forward was unable to guide his nation to victory in the Africa Cup of Nations after losing the final to team-mate Sadio Mane and Senegal. Fast forward a few weeks and Egypt faced Senegal again, this time for a place at the 2022 Qatar World Cup, with Mane and co once again coming out on top.
After recent heartbreak, Salah may have played his last game as a Pharaoh after a clip surfaced on social media of him talking to his international teammates.
Neville makes bold fan prediction
Under the ownership of Fenway Sports Group, Liverpool have become one of the best teams in world football.
Having won the the 2019 UEFA Champions League and following it up with a 2020 Premier League title, Jurgen Klopp has his side on course to win an unprecedented quadruple having already secured the Carabao Cup this season. The German has done all this while spending moderately compared to some of the team’s rivals and pundit Gary Neville has claimed that the club will slide down the table once Klopp leaves.
Should that happen, Neville has said that fans will turn on the owners for not spending enough in recent years.
Injury updates on trio
Liverpool return to Premier League action early on Saturday with fitness doubts over a few key players.
Victory over Watford would see the Reds overtake Man City and move into first position. But they will do so with at least right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold missing, with the England international nursing a hamstring injury which ruled him out of both of England’s games over the international break.
But there is hope that Naby Keita and James Milner will return for the clash against the Hornets.
