In latest development surrounding Mohamed Salah’s injury, Liverpool physio Ruben Pons told Marca that the star player will return to the field in “three to four weeks”, leaving his chances to play in the World Cup in jeopardy.

The Egyptian forward suffered a shoulder injury during the Champions League final against Real Madrid, after receiving a challenge from Sergio Ramos.

Post the challenge, the Liverpool player withdrew from the game in tears. After the match, Salah took to social media and said, “It was a very tough night, but I'm a fighter. Despite the odds, I'm confident that I'll be in Russia to make you all proud. Your love and support will give me the strength I need.”

Physio Pons further added, "Once we knew the injury we planned the treatment. He is sad about what happened but he is totally focused on recovery and seeing when he can be ready.

"He is going to mark the recovery times. In principle it will be from three to four weeks but we are going to try to reduce those deadlines, that’s the big goal."

Pons also told that it looked like a serious injury right from the start. "We knew that it was something serious as soon as [Salah] fell on the ground because he never complains. We were afraid for the worst.

"We were in the field until the break. I was devastated, I tried to transmit calmness. I told him that nothing could be done and that he should not worry too much. It was time to look for solutions and not to regret because things did not work.

"We were watching the game, we were looking at social networks and the security was telling us the result, Madrid has scored, we equalised.

"When we came back, the game was over, the whole team had changed and prepared for riding the team bus.

"We helped him change because he could not do it alone and we went to the airport."

Salah has flown to Spain to undergo treatment, accompanied by doctors from both Liverpool and the Egyptian national team. Their opening fixture in Group A is against Uruguay on June 15. They then face Russia on June 19 and Saudi Arabia on June 25.
