Mohamed Salah’s injury in Liverpool’s Champions League final defeat is “serious” according to Jurgen Klopp, the BBC reports.
Salah left the pitch in tears after being pulled down by Real captain Sergio Ramos in the Reds’ 3-1 defeat.
“It’s a really serious injury,” said Klopp.
“He is in the hospital for an X-ray. It’s either the collarbone or the shoulder itself. It doesn’t look good.”
The Egyptian FA, however, tweeted (in Arabic) that Salah had his X-ray, showing he had a “sprain in the shoulder ligaments” and that it was “optimistic” he would be fit for the Russia tournament, which starts on 14 June.
Salah, who has scored 44 goals for the club this season, tried to carry on after the incident in the 26th minute.
However, he was forced to leave the pitch a few minutes later and was replaced by Adam Lallana.
