Liverpool head coach, Jurgen Klopp, has warned Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane that one of them will suffer heartbreak at full-time when Egypt clashes with Senegal in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) final on Sunday in Cameroon.
Klopp said this during his pre-match press conference ahead of Liverpool’s FA Cup fourth-round tie against Cardiff City on Sunday.
Egypt and Senegal will battle each other at the 2021 AFCON final in Cameroon.
Egypt had defeated Cameroon on penalties in the AFCON semi-final experience, while Senegal won 3-1 against Burkina Faso.
“Great achievement for both [Salah and Mane] getting through to the [AFCON] final,” Klopp said.
“Naby [Keita of Guinea] played an exceptional tournament as well. So far, a really successful tournament for our boys and it will be exciting.
“It won’t be easy because one will be really happy afterward and one less so. It’s a chance to achieve something really big.”
On whether Salah and Mane will be accessible for Liverpool’s Premier League fixture against Leicester on Thursday, Klopp added: “I think they will be available, but we will see.
“Tuesday or Wednesday is the latest the winner will be back, the other slightly earlier. I have to talk to them. They have rhythm as they have played quite a few games!”
