Salah agrees Liverpool stay

Egyptian superstar Mohamed Salah has put pen to paper on a new Liverpool contract.

The prolific Premier League goalscorer’s new deal will reportedly make him the club’s highest paid player of all-time on £350 000 a week until 2025.

The deal ends talk that Salah was ready to follow Sadio Mane out of the Liverpool exit doors. The Senegal star completed his move to Bayern Munich with Salah’s deal coming to an end at the conclusion of next season.

“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,” manager Jurgen Klopp told Liverpool’s website.

“It’s the best decision for us and best decision for him. He belongs with us I think. This is his club now.

“I have no doubt Mo’s best years are still to come. And that’s saying something, because the first five seasons here have been the stuff of legend.”

Since joining from Roma in 2017, Salah has become a fundamental part of reestablishing Klopp’s men as serial contenders for domestic and European success.

He scored in the 2019 Champions League final victory over Tottenham and was the club’s top scorer when they won the Premier League for the first time in 30 years in 2020.

Salah has more trophies in his sights after finally putting pen to paper.

“I feel great and excited to win trophies with the club. It’s a happy day for everyone,” he said.

“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.”
