Egypt and Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has been seen in Spain without a sling as he undergoes treatment on his injured left shoulder, footage recorded by El Chiringuito TV shows.
Salah, Liverpool’s 44-goal leading scorer, had to leave the pitch midway through the first half of Saturday’s Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid after spraining ligaments during a tangle with defender Sergio Ramos.
The Egyptian federation said on Sunday that he would start a rehabilitation programme in Spain, and the footage showing him without a sling was tweeted by El Chiringuito on Tuesday.
It comes after Salah tweeted that he remained “confident” of being available for his country’s World Cup campaign.
“It was a very tough night, but I’m a fighter,” he wrote. “Despite the odds, I’m confident that I’ll be in Russia to make you all proud. Your love and support will give me the strength I need.”
On Tuesday, Uruguay striker Luis Suarez said he hopes Salah will have recovered from a shoulder injury by the time the countries face each other in the World Cup next month.
