Mohamed Salah has tested positive of COVID-19 for the second time and will not be available to face Leicester City on Sunday.

Salah’s second coronavirus test came back positive, the Egyptian football body said on Wednesday.

In a statement, the Egyptian Football Federation said that the 28-year-old winger underwent a new swab test after he tested positive for the virus on Friday.

It was said that Salah did not have any symptoms and he has been in self-isolation.

Salah will not be able to play for Liverpool in Sunday’s Premier League match against Leicester City.

Upon testing positive for coronavirus, Salah moved into quarantine in a hotel in El-Gouna, ahead of his county’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Togo – which the Pharaoh’s won 3-1 on Tuesday.

Also, he is likely to be ineligible for next week’s UEFA Champions League group match in which Liverpool will face Italian club Atalanta in England.


The 28-year-old had been training with the national team for three days having reportedly attended his brother’s wedding in Cairo last Monday. He was also handed an award by the Egyptian FA at a ceremony in Cairo on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny’s second swab test also came back positive.

Elneny may miss Arsenal’s league match this weekend as the Gunners will visit Leeds United on Sunday.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
