Liverpool have announced that Mohamed Salah has secured the services of a new long-term deal at the team, ending the recent rumours surrounding his future.
The 30-year-old was again in stunning form for Jurgen Klopp’s side during the 2021-22 season, founding back of the net 31 times and providing 16 assists in 51 games in all competitions.
There had been rumours surrounding the Egypt international’s future, though, with his contract due to expire next June, and the Merseyside Reds were allegedly not prepared to meet his wage demands.
The both sides have now managed to come to an agreement over a fresh deal, with Salah’s terms at Anfield now due to run until June 2025.
“I feel great and [I am] excited to win trophies with the club. It’s a happy day for everyone,” the attacker told the club’s official website. “It takes a little bit of time, I think, to renew, but now everything is done so we just need to focus on what’s next.
“I think you can see in the last five or six years the team was always going [upwards]. Last season we were close to winning four, but unfortunately in the last week of the season we lost two trophies.
“I think we are in a good position to fight for everything. We have new signings as well. We just need to keep working hard, have a good vision, be positive and go for everything again.
“My message [to the fans] is the players in the team want to give our best next season to try to win all the trophies. As usual, you stay behind us and give us a big push and I am sure we are going to win trophies again [together].”
Meanwhile, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp added: “This is a special treat for our supporters to enjoy their weekend even more. I’m sure there will be some celebrations for this news tonight.
“Really pleased – really, really pleased. It’s the best decision for us and best decision for him. He belongs with us I think. This is his club now.
