Rumble / Sports News(CNN)Liverpool's attempt to pull off one of the greatest escapes in recent European football history suffered a huge blow Monday after the club confirmed star striker Mohamed Salah will miss the Champions League semifinal second leg against Barcelona. Liverpool, beaten 3-0 in the first leg in Spain last week, had hoped Salah would have recovered after sustaining a head injury during Saturday's Premier League victory at Newcastle. "It's concussion so he wouldn't be allowed to play," Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp told reporters Monday. "He feels OK, but it is not good enough from a medical point of view. He's desperate, everything, but we can do it."
