Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is optimistic about forward Mohamed Salah’s future, certain he will sign a new contract at Anfield.
Mohamed Salah is enjoying a superb season and is currently the top scorer in English Premier League with 13 goals.
Salah, 29, joined the Reds in 2017 and his current deal expires in 18 months, that is, in 2023.
But now, his head coach has reassured Liverpool fans that they need not worry over Salah’s commitment to the club.
The Egypt international himself confirmed his happiness with Liverpool and rejection of Barcelona’s transfer interest in the football news yesterday.
Jurgen Klopp Is Optimistic about Forward Mohamed Salah’s Future
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is confident that his star striker Mohamed Salah will sign a contract extension with them soon.
“We’re talking – and extending the contract for a player like Mo is not one where you meet for a cup of tea and find an agreement in the afternoon,” said Klopp.
The Reds’ German coach added: “Mo is fine, I’m fine. What we all want is clear. Things like this take time. I think what we all want is clear things. It needs time, that is it.”
Meanwhile, Liverpool will face AC Milan in their final Champions League group (Group B) game on Tuesday, that is, today.
But they are in no danger with this match as Klopp’s side having already qualified for the knockout stage.
And as for their prolific goal scorer, Salah has scored in each of Liverpool’s past six away games in Europe.
And yet, Klopp is unwilling to disclose whether the forward will start against Milan: “I cannot change all the line-up.”
He continued “We need players on the pitch so I can’t rotate and start with nine, that’s not possible.”
“We will see if Mo plays or not and if he plays or scores or not, but the players are very understanding about the situation. We want to field the best possible side for the situation we are in,” Klopp said before facing the Italians.
