Barcelona have displayed their sportsmanship by sending Liverpool a classy message on the eve of their semi-final second leg after finding out Mohamed Salah has been ruled out with concussion.
The Egyptian forward suffered the head injury in Liverpool’s victory over Newcastle on Saturday evening.
Liverpool’s leading scorer was flattened by Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dubravka in an accidental collision and must now sit out his team’s attempt to retrieve a three-goal first leg deficit against Barcelona.
Jurgen Klopp confirmed on Monday that Salah had suffered a concussion from the incident and will be unavailable for selection.
The Spanish giants took to Twitter to send their best wishes to Salah by writing: ‘Games like these are for world-class players. Get well soon!’
Salah’s omission will come as a bitter blow for Liverpool, who will also be without Naby Keita and Roberto Firmino due to injury.
