Mohamed Salah, Virgil van Dijk return to Liverpool training
Liverpool duo Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk have both returned to training ahead of the final game of the season against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Sunday.
Both were absent for Liverpool’s 2-1 win over Southampton on Tuesday evening, after the pair picked up groin and knee injuries in the FA Cup win over Chelsea last weekend.
The news comes as a boost to Jurgen Klopp’s side, who trail Manchester City by one point at the top of the Premier League table heading into the title-deciding weekend.
When asked about Salah’s battle with Tottenham Hotspur’s Heung-min Son for the golden boot ahead of the game with Wolves at Anfield, Klopp said: “I understand 100% the goal scoring battle with Son but [there’s] no chance that we take any risks. Mo doesn’t want to take any risks [either], there is no doubt about that.”
Regarding both Salah and Van Dijk returning to training, Klopp continued: “My preferred solution would be that they all could play at the weekend for rhythm reasons, or at least could be on the bench and then we can bring them on or not.”
Following the crucial game with Wolves on Sunday, Liverpool will also be hopeful that the duo are fit to take on Real Madrid in the Champions League final on May 28.
