Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah will travel to Spain on Wednesday to undergo treatment on his shoulder injury, the Egyptian Football Federation has announced.

The Reds’ 44-goal top scorer was forced off midway through the first half of Saturday’s Champions League final defeat against Real Madrid due to the problem sustained in a tangle with Sergio Ramos.

Salah tweeted on Sunday that he remained “confident” of being available for Egypt’s World Cup campaign in Russia, and on Monday evening it was confirmed he will head to Spain.

The Egyptian federation said Salah began his rehabilitation programme on Sunday, and was in “high spirits” and “determined to return quickly to the ranks of the team”.

He will receive treatment in Spain, accompanied by the president of the Egyptian federation, the national team doctor and Liverpool medics.

“Mohamed Salah began his treatment programme on Sunday, when he confirmed in a telephone conversation with the technical and administrative staff of the team he was in high spirits and determined to return quickly to the ranks of the team,” the federation said in a statement on its website.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp acknowledged in the wake of Saturday’s defeat in Kiev that it was a “serious injury”, with the club fearful he had dislocated his shoulder, which would likely rule him out of the World Cup finals.

But in a tweet on Sunday evening, Salah said he expects to play in Russia with the Egyptian national team.

“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.”

The World Cup begins on 14 June, with the host nation Russia taking on Saudi Arabia in the first Group A match.

Egypt’s first match, against Uruguay, takes place on the second day of the tournament.
