Fitness boost: Manager delivers some good news for key Liverpool attacker – report
By John Reid
Mohamed Salah will not have to play in an international double header next month, according to a report.
The Liverpool Echo has stated that the Egyptian winger’s duties have been halved after the friendly against United Arab Emirates next month has been cancelled.
National team boss Hector Cuper has decided not to travel to the Middle East, and this will be a major boost for Salah’s fitness levels for Liverpool.
Salah will still be involved in Egypt’s meaningless World Cup qualifier against Ghana on November 12th, but as Egypt have already qualified for the World Cup, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp will be hoping that Salah’s minutes are limited in the game.
The winger became a legend in Egypt last month when his last minute penalty against Congo sealed Egypt’s first World Cup qualification since 1990.

Salah has been one of Liverpool’s success stories in what has been an up and down season so far.
He signed from Roma for a club record fee, and make an immediate impact with a goal on his debut against Watford.
His form in the Champions League has been exceptional, with three goals in the Group Stages already.
With the Champions League Group Stages coming to an end and a very busy Premier League schedule coming up, Liverpool fans will be grateful of any break for one of their most important players – especially with Sadio Mane out injured.
