Mohamed Salah injury: Liverpool star OUT of World Cup after dislocating shoulder
Gary Lineker confirmed at half-time on BT Sport that Liverpool had diagnosed the injury as a dislocation.
And that will rule him out of the World Cup in Russia which starts on June 14.
According to the NHS website, a dislocated shoulder takes 12 to 16 weeks to fully recover from the injury.
That means he could even miss the start of next season for Liverpool depending on the extent of the damage done.
The NHS website states: “You’ll usually be able to resume most activities within two weeks, but should avoid heavy lifting and sports involving shoulder movements for between six weeks and three months.
“Your care team will advise you.”
Salah has been in sensational form this season, netting an incredible 44 goals in all competitions.
That saw the winger named the PFA Player of the Year.
Salah tangled with Sergio Ramos in suffering the injury but Chelsea legend Frank Lampard does not blame the Spaniard.
“No, I don’t think so (there is any blame),” he said.
“Listen, he’s got close, which any defender should do. Sometimes when you do make contact you do interlink arms.
“I think it was more unfortunate in the end in the way he fell.”
Champions League Final – Real Madrid v Liverpool
Liverpool are currently 2-1 down to Real Madrid in the Champions League final.
A Loris Karius clanger handed Karim Benzema a goal before Sadio Mane equalised.
But an outrageous overhead kick from substitute Gareth Bale has given Real Madrid the lead.
