Mohamed Salah is yet to rejoin the Liverpool squad on their pre-season tour.
The Egyptian winger has had no time to rest this summer as his national team took part in the African Cup of Nations.
Still, despite that heartbreaking defeat, Salah seems to be in good spirits and recovering for his big Liverpool return ahead of another huge season for the Reds.
He posted an Instagram snap of his “pre-pre-season” workout recently and his teammates were unsurprisingly quick to respond to it.
It seems that his teammates are eager for his return as Dejan Lovren replied saying “ple-ple-please return”.
Georginio Wijnaldum was also on the scene and he just posted a series of muscle emojis for his friend.
After playing in the World Cup last summer and now the AFCON in the 2019 summer break, Liverpool fans may be concerned that Salah could suffer from burnout.
Only time will tell if he can continue to light up Anfield and inspire the Reds to another title challenge.
