Liverpool Physio Confirms Mohamed Salah Won’t Fast Ahead of UCL Final

Liverpool Physio Confirms Mohamed Salah Won’t Fast Ahead of UCL Final

A Liverpool physio has confirmed that Mohamed Salah won’t fast today or tomorrow ahead of the Champions League Final against Real Madrid.

The Egyptian is a devout Muslim and has been fasting from food and drink during daylight hours since the start of Ramadan on May 16.

Some may have been worried that Salah fasting ahead of tomorrow’s game in Kiev would have a negative impact on his physical condition.

But they don’t need to worry anymore after Liverpool physio Ruben Pons confirmed that he won’t fast.

According to liverpoolecho.co.uk, Salah will be eating both today and on Saturday after they came up with a work plan to cope with the impact of Ramadan.

Pons told Spanish radio station Cadena SER: “We were in Marbella and the nutritionist established a work plan.

“Tomorrow and the day of the match he won’t, so it’s not going to affect him.”

Muslims are allowed to break fast if they travel during the day – which Salah will be doing.

But it’s unclear if teammates Sadio Mane and Emre Can – who are also of Islamic faith – will eat during both days.
