Klopp comes hard on Leicester star Hamza Choudhury following Salah injury

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was left fuming at Leicester City midfielder Hamza Choudhury following his tackle on Mohamed Salah on Saturday evening in an English Premier League match. 

The Reds maintained their perfect start to the season with a hard-fought 2-1 win over the Foxes, who equalized with 10 minutes to go through Madison after Mane had given the hosts the lead in the first half. 

After the win, Klopp took issue with Choudhury's challenge on his star player which forced him off in the 92nd minute.

"It looked like they were fine with the draw but we were not. We saw it in the situation when we got the penalty, which was a clear penalty," he said. 

"But I really stand here and should be only happy because of the way the boys did it and stuff like that but I cannot get over the Choudhury yellow card," 

"He should know better. He maybe was unlucky with [Matt] Ritchie [who is out for two months after a tackle from Choudhury], but it was him and he has to calm down," 

"You cannot only go for the man, and then he gets only a yellow card – I don’t know how that works. You see Mo lying in the dressing room and you think, okay…" he added. 

Salah's injury is however said to be mild and not as earlier feared and might be back in action soon.
