The Premier League’s top scorer will not be called up to the squad for the game against Niger in the AFCON qualifiers on March 21, nor the friendly against Nigeria four days later.
Significantly, the Pharaohs have already qualified for the tournament, so can afford not to call the 26-year-old into the squad for the competitive game.
Be sure to check out the incredible story of the man who rose from a Tanzanian refugee camp to become one of Australia’s biggest football stars in the video below…
The decision means Salah will be afforded a break between the Reds’ trip to Fulham on March 17, and a huge match against title rivals Tottenham at Anfield on March 31, which Jurgen Klopp will surely be overjoyed at.
Naturally, with the way things are going right now, fans of the Premier League’s second-placed team are ecstatic with the news on Twitter…

Great news. Here’s hoping Klopp takes a leaf out of Fergies book and loads of our international players have ‘knocks’ and ‘niggles’ that prevent them getting called up for theee March internationals

Well I for one think this is great news. No disrespect meant to Mo, but less chance of an injury and an important time in the season.

Really is. Let’s just hope he starts banging them goals again this weekend. We really can’t afford another draw, or even worse, a loss. #LFC
