Salah tests positive for coronavirus – Egyptian FA

Mohamed Salah (£12.4m) has tested positive for coronavirus while on international duty with Egypt.

The Egyptian Football Association announced on Friday that the Liverpool midfielder returned a positive test ahead of their Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Togo but is asymptomatic.

The (translated) statement read:

The medical swab conducted on the mission of our first national football team showed that our international player, Mohamed Salah, the star of Liverpool, was infected with the coronavirus after his test came out positive – although he does not suffer from any symptoms.

[He] was subject to the medical protocol after the coordination of the national team doctor, Dr Muhammad Abu Al-Ola, with his English club, Liverpool, in addition to isolating him in his room and also isolating all contacts.

In a later announcement, Egypt confirmed that a second test backed up the findings of the first:

At the time of writing, Liverpool have yet to confirm the news.

Barring any further developments, Salah will now have to undergo a period of self-isolation and will very likely be unavailable for the Gameweek 9 visit of Leicester City.

The Reds are already injury-ravaged heading into that fixture, with Joe Gomez (£5.4m) joining Virgil van Dijk (£6.3m) on the sidelines and Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.4m) also a major doubt with a calf problem.

Sadio Mane (£12.0m) of course tested positive for coronavirus last month, returning to training at Melwood after a 10-day period of self-isolation and featuring for the Reds in the Merseyside derby, 15 days after his initial diagnosis.

Salah could feasibly return in Gameweek 10, then, if a similar timeframe of recovery, isolation and return to training pans out – although there is also the small matter of a flight back to England in between.

We have already seen West Bromwich Albion’s Callum Robinson (£5.5m) withdraw from the Republic of Ireland squad after returning a positive test of his own.

Wolves’ Conor Coady (£5.0m) is also self-isolating after coming into contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19.

Earlier on Friday, Ireland revealed that Alan Browne had returned a positive coronavirus test after playing against England – although the Football Association of Ireland added that “no close contacts of the player” had been identified.

      Tough one. Like the Vardy shout, but takes away money from the midfield hitters. Is Bruno going to turn into a city player?

      I'm on Vardy now

    Salah attended his brothers wedding three days ago. Why isn’t he getting shamed for this? There was no social distancing judging from the pictures...

    1. roghippo

      Covid rules are only for us plebs

    2. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE

      It was his brother's wedding. I can see the logic, even if it seems stupid.

      1. FreddyP3
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Yeah but did you see the pictures? I had my mothers funeral a few weeks back and everything was super strict for tables to be spread out and no hand shakes etc.. this wedding was a straight out party with close dancing etc. Not cool imo.

        1. Shineonme

          So what.. not everyone is brainwashed by the plandemic..

            Boom, truth bomb right there.

      There is nothing wrong with him attending his brother’s wedding. You could possibly shame the Egyptian government if you aren’t happy with the number of cases weddings lead to but unless the wedding was illegal, no reason to shame Mo Salah.

      1. Brosstan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Lol. He lives in the UK. He knows what the rules are in the UK. He knows the wedding he attended wasnt following the rules in the UK, and that he will be returning to the UK in short time. He knew there was a high risk of getting the virus by attending the wedding. Hes not living up to the responsibility footballers should show for being allowed to keep living relatively normally while other people are having their lives put on hold or worse.

        Absolutely ridiculous that there are people defending him. Hes proven himself to be a moron.

        1. Klaren
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 11 days ago

          Family comes before football and work. He doesn't have to follow the UK rules just because he is living in the UK.

          1. Brosstan
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 11 days ago

            You can attend family gatherings perfectly fine without blatantly breaching covid regulations...

            1. Klaren
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 11 days ago

              I can agree with that. My point was about him being shamed about attending his brother's wedding. If it's not because he attended but how he acted during the wedding, fair enough.

              1. Deulofail
                • 5 Years
                2 months, 11 days ago

                Well I presume he knew it was going to be a little difficult to avoid contact with people. He's not completely blind to his own family, culture and all the other relevant information.

                I'm not convinced that the special protections that sports people are getting during the pandemic are intended for this use. If I were able to move freely between countries, I would be visiting my family for Christmas, which is something I only do once per year. If I was given special privilages to travel freely for the purpose of my job, I would be very sensitive about what I use that privilage for. Salah, on the other hand, seems to be taking advantage of that privilage. I can see why people are upset about it.

            you mean fun comes before people drowning in their own fluids? nice.

            salah is rich enough to be able to pay for covid tests for guests. this sorry mess was avoidable.

        Yeah no one should take personal responsibility for anything. It should always be someone else's fault.

        1. Klaren
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 11 days ago

          Nothing to take responsibility for.

          1. Deulofail
            • 5 Years

            Hmm

    4. Don Van Vliet
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      The point underlying this and every other single incident/occasion/event/gathering/whatever it may be, is that everyone should be distancing as much as possible and masking-up NOT because any given government mandates it and you
      have no other option, but because it's the socially responsible thing to do.

      As an adult, you shouldn't have to be told to do the right thing. Having a moral compass means conducting yourself with compassion, principles, and integrity, and being fully accountable for your actions, even if nobody is watching.

  4. F4L
    • 6 Years

    So Salah won't be allowed to leave Egypt until he has fully recovered and reliably tests negative for the virus. I doubt he makes the Brighton game to be honest.

    Salah gotta go then... would you solely do Salah to Bruno? Worry about Robbo/Saiss/double-Spurs-no-City/no Grealish/no Chilwell next week? 1FT 1.6 ITB

    Martinez (Steer)
    Robbo Coufal Lamptey (Saiss Mitchell)
    Salah** Son Ziyech JRodriguez Podence
    Kane DCL (Davis)

    1. King Kohli
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Saiss could play this gw as Coady is in quarantine.
      But long term you would want to remove him for Chilwell

    2. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      Sell Salah & Sais/Mitchell

      1. Top Lad Dakes.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Yep Salah as good as gone, likely for Bruno with my FT. Mitchell seems a non-issue right now as permasub, but am tempted by Saiss to Chilwell for a hit - however then means benching one of Coufal/Lamptey/Podence this week....

        1. Hotdogs for Tea
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years

          just Salah then, easy option to defer everything else

  7. timawflowers

    Salah and foden out for bruno and ziyech?

    1. Shineonme
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Yep

  8. Stand By Mee
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    I've got Salah for 12.0 so if I sell him now it means:

    1) -0.3 tv - He'll probably drop only once so if I want him back I'll loose 0.3
    2) -4 points - It would be for a hit now since I have no FT left
    3) -1 FT - I'll need another FT in gw 10 or 11 to bring him back

    I think I'll just hold him. Are you, fellow Salah owners, planning to hold or sell?

    1. DA Minnion
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      I've two frees and no bruno so might do the switch.

    2. AlternativeB
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Holding until near deadline. Same issue as you

      • OLB
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            Not bad among us defenders, but the less said about our so-called attack, the better

      • Yank Revolution
        • 9 Years

        Definitely holding

      • Ian & Zen
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Same as you.
        Holding as would cost -4 to transfer, plus a transfer back in
        Plus, I doubt he’ll be the last player to test positive during the international break

      • ads7680
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Not sure its really a 0.3 loss. If you sell him now you would get 12.2 for him, not 12.0. He if drops once before you buy him back you would only lose 0.1 (12.3 - 12.2 = 0.1). You are right about the -4 and the lost FT.

      • Stram Dunk
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 11 days ago

        I'm holding

      • Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Your first point isn't correct.

        You'd be selling him for 12.2m. So if he drops 0.1m, you'd buy him back at 12.3m. You'd only be losing 0.1m technically.
        Hit is indeed not great and the FT I consider worth 4 points so 8 points total.

      • Hotdogs for Tea
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Free transfer, need Bruno, bought at 12 and look at it as selling for a profit.

        If I want him back I will pay more for him than I sell him but who cares really, I would rather go for the points

    3. FPL Kaka
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Does Brewster start against West Ham or is his place not nailed yet?

      1. FourLokoLeipzig
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Fairly confident he should start so I’m starting him, but I certainly wouldn’t say he’s nailed. Another anonymous showing and he could be dropped for the WBA game, I reckon

      2. Forever In Our Shadow
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        2 points max regardless of starting.

        1. FourLokoLeipzig
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 11 days ago

          Well you never know, but I agree it looks likely based on his form (and lack of supply) since the transfer

      3. Doctor Evil
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Starts and hauls

        1. Doctor Evil
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 11 days ago

          Previous fixtures were horrendous this is his first good one

        But Salah could miss only one game and you’ll want him back

      3. Gandalf
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        A transfer out and a transfer in for Salah ultimately leads to a hit needed to fix another issue.. just keep Salah

        Great team.
        Brewster as fodder I assume- cannot see him picking up more than 2 a game

      4. Garam MOSALAH
        • 7 Years

        Not convinced with Taylor, overall good

      5. adam wigan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        I presume you’re going for a 3-5-2. If so you could consider a 4 million defender as 3rd sub. Chances are you won’t use them and it frees up money to use elsewhere / keep for emergencies. Otherwise it looks really good

      6. Voodoo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    6. Stram Dunk

      In Coady's absence would you play Saiss over Lamptey?

      1. Garam MOSALAH
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Probably

    7. Iceball
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      A) Salah to KDB for a hit, then in a few weeks Sterling to Salah.
      B) Other option is to play Brewster or pray Saiss does something.

      1. Orion
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      What will you pick ? Later as a 8th attacker/fodder

      A) Vardy Soucek
      B) Bruno Brewster

      On WC, trying to be a little different and capitalise on the City fixtures. Is a defence of 5.5 4.5 4.5 4.5 4.0 all right if it enables an attack of:

      Salah* KDB Bruno Grealish (4.5)
      Jesus DCL Adams?

      (*or Mane if Salah out more than 1 GW)

      1. Clam. ☘️
        • 6 Years

        It's different! Would you be able to get Salah back? Could lead to a sideways Mané to Salah move in the future. Also, the defender rotation will be key but could absolutely work.

          Cheers mate! Appreciate the response. This currently leaves 0.1 ITB (with Salah; 0.3 with Mane) so I could get Salah back in one move if I sell him for 12.2 and he drops to 12.3.

      My bench is rubbish this week:

      Dallas vs Arsenal
      Bissouma vs Villa
      KWP vs Wolves

      With Salah likely out i have to play one of them, or take a hit to replace one of them. They are all at 4.5m and I have 0.9itb.

      1. Major League Shocker
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 11 days ago

        That's not so bad, Arsenal and Wolves are both pretty toothless.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year

          Would probably play KWP as Saints are a bit more solid than Leeds at the back.

    11. Parsnips
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Team:

        Martinez
        Robo—Chilwell—Coufal
        Salah—Zaha—Barkley—Fernandes
        DCL—Werner—Watkins

        Ryan—Anguissa—Mitchell—Dunne

        1.3 in the bank. Any suggestions on what transfers I should do now or in the future?

              He should play, Shaw is out.

            This is the ideal player i wanted, but yeah as you said, never know. Might be benched and a waste of transfer.

        Have Son Sterling already.

        Salah to Bruno for free? Even if it's just for the West Brom game possibly.

        Will lose a bit of value but he should drop a little also.

          Depends when you want Salah back. If it’s the following week, bench him, not worth two transfers.

        2. JURGENAUT
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          2 months, 11 days ago

          I'd just bench Salah personally.

        3. Clam. ☘️
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 11 days ago

          If it's for one GW I'd advise against. Worth noting if you keep him that you'll lose value but when others are taking hits to get him in you'll have those 4 points banked.

      • JURGENAUT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 11 days ago

        A) Targett
        B) Coufal

        Which is better for this week? Cheers 🙂

            Agree + attacking threat.

      • JURGENAUT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 11 days ago

        A lot of people moving onto Ziyech...

        I have Werner who seems to be picking up his form too.

        Keep or move to Ziyech?

        1. Sharkytect
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 11 days ago

          Keep

        2. Clam. ☘️
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 11 days ago

          Werner will likely get more points than Ziyech however Ziyech is the value pick. Depends on where your additional funds would go.

          1. JURGENAUT
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            2 months, 11 days ago

            (Ziyech + Cancelo) vs Werner? But wouldn't be so straightforward, need hits.

            1. Clam. ☘️
              • 6 Years
              2 months, 11 days ago

              Consider Chelsea subsequent fixtures. Which will require a moment of creative magic to unlock a resolute defence and which will be open-ended and thus, favouring Werner?

      • Sharkytect
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years

        Ifs and buts about salah being out for more than one gameweek - my understanding is he would only miss the Leicester game. Is this right?

        If two matches I am definitely selling. Bought him at 12.2.

        1. Stram Dunk
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Keep

        2. Pep Roulette
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 11 days ago

          Sell. No guarantee that he misses only one gameweek. Bring him back for Fulham.

        3. Clam. ☘️
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 11 days ago

          Sell, imo. However I'm biased as I am certainly removing him on WC. I think if you can plan it well and have an option that will outscore Salah over the next few GWs then no fear should be felt.

        Final pieces of the WC jigsaw atm... opinions would be appreciated and reasons as to why. Aware that benching headaches are involved 🙂

        McC / Forster
        Chilly / Dias / Justin / Targett / Coufal
        KdB / Fernandes / Grealish / X / Y
        DCL / Watkins / Z

        Looking to fill X, Y and Z with one of the following options before moving to Salah, Bamford and Soucek in GW12. Have a little wiggle room with money itb.

        (i) Two of Ziyech, Zaha or Hamez + Richarlison
        (ii) One of Ziyech, Zaha or Hamez + Jota + Jesus

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          B with Ziyech sounds good.

          I think your defense is nearly perfection.
          If you don't have Jota in your team, then who are you dropping to start Watkins? I'd prefer to put more rotation in there.
          I also think Jesus is a decent step up over Richarlison, while he's fine if you don't have Everton (which you do, of course). Jesus leaves you funds to reach Werner, and others nearby, easier.

            I'd bench KdB this week.

      • thegaffer82
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Trying to look at some positives from the Mo injury;
        - Can sell Salah (defo 0pts) instead of Son this week for Bruno(c)
        - Without value tied up in Salah we can be more flexible moving around premium mids to target best captaincy option
        - Will be easy to get KDB(c) next week for Son

        That’s about it...

        Salah & Foden to Bruno(C) & Ziyech for -4?

        Gives me the following team

        McCarthy (Button)

        KDB Bruno(C) Son Ziyech Podence
        Kane DCL (Davis)
