Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp, has said Mohamed Salah will start against FA Cup opponents Manchester United.
Salah was used from the bench as the Reds’ 68-game unbeaten Premier League run at Anfield came to an end on Thursday evening courtesy of a 1-0 defeat to Burnley.
But the German said: “Yes, it makes it absolutely likely that Mo will start. I don’t think that is a massive secret.”
And Klopp isn’t concerned that his contract situation could eventually impact on the team’s performances.Salah sends tongues wagging about his imminent Liverpool’s departure
“I don’t think so,” he replied to one such suggestion. “That’s a normal thing as well in the world of football.
“It’s not that we go out and talk about things we think are important, it’s pretty rare. But we get asked questions and we answer and that’s the story and [it looks like] we started the conversation.
“In most cases, it’s not like that. No, I don’t think it will disrupt the season.”
