Klopp confirms Salah out of 2nd Barcelona encounter.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that the team will be without top scorer Mohamed Salah for Tuesday’s Champions League semi-final, the second leg against Barcelona.

Klopp at his pre-match press conference on Monday said Salah was concussed in the 3-2 win at Newcastle on Saturday and was stretchered off at St James’ Park due to a head knock sustained as he challenged Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dubravka for a high ball.

“It’s a concussion so that means he would not even be allowed to play. So that’s it. He’s desperate (to play) everything but we cannot do it.”

Klopp will also be without Brazilian striker Roberto Firmino due to a groin injury as his side face the huge challenge of trying to overturn a 3-0 first leg deficit to make the Champions League final for a second consecutive season.

“Two of the world’s best strikers are not available tomorrow night and we have to score four goals against Barcelona to go through after 90 minutes,”

“It doesn’t make life easier, but as long as we have 11 players on the pitch, we will try it.” added Klopp.
