Jurgen Klopp said to attend brother’s wedding Mohamed Salah, who tested positive for COVID-19, probably faced social pressure.
Salah missed his country’s fixtures against Togo after he contracted COVID-19 while away on international duty with Egypt.
“A brother’s wedding is a very special moment,” Klopp told a media conference on Friday.
“In other countries, in other situations, there’s more social, I’m not sure if it’s the word but, pressure, and stuff.”
“He’s probably back today. We are obviously in close contact with him all the time.”
“How it always is in these cases is that when you have a negative test the process really starts. He’s in a good place. He feels well. No symptoms.”
“There is nothing to say in public about it. I have talked to my players about it. Nothing for the public. We are in the situation we are in.”
“The rest is between Mo and me. We did that [talk] already and we are fine.”
“What I can say about my players is they are incredibly disciplined. Football players in general are very disciplined.”
