Liverpool has eased fears the extent of Mohamed Salah's injury. After an initial assessment, it has been found that the forward's injury is not as serious as first feared.

However, Jurgen Klopp remains indignant and believes that Salah, along with other football greats, should be offered more protection to prevent them from getting kicked out of the game.

Salah's ankle was trapped underneath Hamza Choudhury's body when the Leicester City midfielder lunged for the ball in the last minute of the match, forcing the Egypt international to hobble off the pitch before the final whistle.

The incident triggered fears of a serious issue, and Klopp was seen angered by the situation. He first turned his anger toward Choudhury, but in the end, resorted to a broader assessment about protecting technical players in football.

According to the Liverpool manager, football lawmakers must make some changes and ban challenges like the one that saw Salah kicked out of the pitch.

"This kind of challenge to me - I don't want to speak anymore about the player - but this has to be a red card. It is just too dangerous," the German coach said. Klopp pointed out that although there are other serious challenges, the one that Mo was involved in was already "dangerous."

When asked about the injury, Salah said at the time he wasn't sure how serious the damage was. Klopp said the same thing but thought that since the player had been forced off, it must have been serious.

Medics arrived on the pitch and confirmed there was swelling, with Salah appearing to be in a lot of pain. However, they eased off fears of a serious injury that could potentially keep the 27-year-old off the pitch for months.

Club doctors assured that Salah would be treated accordingly during the international break, and his return in the Premier League will not be long.

After Sadio Mane gave the Anfield side a first-half lead, they were pegged back by James Maddison before James Milner converted a spot-kick in stoppage time to snatch the three points. It saw Liverpool extend the gap at the top - temporarily at least - to eight points as they mercilessly search for that first Premier League title.

Liverpool's victory over Leicester City was their first clash in the Premier League before an international break of two weeks. Luckily, the club's medical professionals believe that Salah will be back in no time. The news will be a big boost for Klopp, with the Reds flying high at the top of the league table.
