Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mene will go head-tohead when Senegal takes on Egypt in the final of Africa Cup of Nations in Yaounde Cameroon.

Liverpool – regardless of which player returns to Anfield as a champion of Africa.

Tonight’s AFCON final will see the Kop’s two brilliant fronts face off in Yaounde’s Olembe Stadium. Salah’s Egypt meets Mane’s Senegal.

The Anfield boss insists that the boys are true warriors. They are always ready and not concerned about vacations or days off. It was never something I heard them inquire about.

It’s really easy with these boys. They want to play right away, but we must work together to discover how it works.


“You can both imagine that you want to play against Leicester and to score goals for Liverpool.

“But we still have a few more days before we can make a decision.”

Klopp said: “Mo, and Sadio both had a successful Africa Cup of Nations. But there is only one winner. All the rest lose. This is the world that we made for them. We are grateful that you asked, as no one ever asks how they handle it.

“But it is not a problem for me. I will do my best to help them. We will talk when they return and see if there is anything they require.

“If they have a need for a day off or such, we will do everything in our power to help them.” We will do anything to help our boys in any situation.

Southampton 12 months earlier for PS34m. They have combined to score 255 goals for the Reds.

Klopp has not been immune to the occasional flare-up.

He asked, “Do they have competition?” It’s a normal, natural thing.
