African Top Award.

Salah and Mane to Travel for the Awards Ceremony despite the fact that

the Reds will play Everton 24 hours after the Ceremony which will be

held in Accra on Thursday.

in a hotel, they sleep in a plane. That is all the difference.

"We have everything organised," Klopp said in his post-match press conference.

"We have two of the three best African players in our squad. We have

to show them respect.

"If Mo is not fit, it will not be for that (travelling),

"I had (Pierre-Emerick) Aubameyang (at Borussia Dortmund) and there is

nothing more important than to go there."
