Mohamed Salah has barely missed a game this season (Picture: Getty)Mohamed Salah has toned down his training efforts for fear of getting injured, Alberto Moreno has revealed.
The Liverpool star is Jurgen Klopp’s most valuable asset and is the Reds’ top goalscorer this season with a remarkable 43 strikes.
Salah will now look to fire Liverpool to Champions League glory after the Reds beat Roma to reach the final.
Liverpool still have two Premier League games to play this season and Salah will most likely be wrapped up in cotton wool ahead of the showdown with Real Madrid on May 26.
And his Liverpool team-mate Moreno revealed how Salah’s fear of picking up a knock has affected his training.
‘Salah’s an incredible guy. He’s having an extraordinary year,’ Moreno said to El Partidazo.

Salah has played 49 games this season and has played almost every minute of Liverpool’s Champions League and league campaigns.
Moreno lost his place to Andrew Robertson earlier in the season, but the left-back is still hopeful he can force his way back into the starting eleven.
