After Mohamed Salah was forced off due to injury during Liverpool's Premier League win over Leicester City this past weekend, an update on his condition has now been given.
The Egyptian superstar was forced from the pitch in the Reds' 2-1 win over Leicester after falling victim to a cynical foul from Foxes midfielder Hamza Choudhury.
The Liverpool Echo has now reported that Salah underwent scans on Monday to reveal the extent of his injury, and that the findings were that he has suffered a twisted ankle.
No timescale has been given for the 27-year-old's recovery, but his condition is better than was first feared. There is still concern, though, that he might be unavailable for selection for the Merseysiders' next Premier League clash, against rivals Manchester United, after the international break.
Salah will have an extended opportunity to receive treatment, however, after he was rested by Egypt for the nation's upcoming match against Botswana on 14 October.
The former Chelsea and AS Roma forward has featured in every match for Liverpool so far this season, scoring four goals in eight league appearances along the way.
