Klopp Confirms Salah And Mane Will Attend CAF Awards In Ghana Ahead Everton Game

Jurgen Klopp have confirmed that he will allow his players Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah to make a 6,600-mile round trip to Ghana the day before Liverpool play Everton in the FA Cup on Friday night.
The two forwards will travel to Accra for the Confederation of African Football's (CAF) player of the year awards on Thursday before travelling back to Merseyside the following day.

The Egyptian and Senegalese are competing against Gabonese Borussia Dortmund’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for the award.
"It is not a problem, we have everything organised," said the Liverpool manager.

"We have two of the three best African players in our squad. We have to show them respect. We are going to sleep in a hotel the night before the match, they are going to sleep on a plane. That is the only difference.

"It is just a sign of respect. I know it. I had Aubameyang at Dortmund and there is nothing more important than to go there."
