Mohamed Salah change planned by Egypt as coach makes Liverpool claim

Egypt assistant boss Tito Garcia has claimed Liverpool's long season left them unable to use their star man as they wanted to in their opening game of the African Cup of Nations. After playing 52 games for Liverpool Salah dived straight into international action. His side beat Zimbabwe 1-0 in their Africa Cup Of Nations opener, but he had a limited impact. Garcia revealed they are planning to play him centrally in their second game against DR Congo on Wednesday night. He said: "We considered using him as a striker against Zimbabwe from the game's start, but Salah was not in top form physically due to his long season with Liverpool , so he started in his regular position. Salah, with his great capacities, is capable of playing in any position and performing well."
