Mohamed Salah ended speculation about his Liverpool future on Friday by signing a new contract believed to run until 2025. Salah, who has scored 156 goals in 254 appearances for Liverpool, has stepped in. The last year of the previous contract with negotiations stalled for 30 years – demanded a salary of gold. However, the Egyptian striker said he has more trophies at Anfield in his sights after finally putting pen to paper.
“I feel great and delighted to have won trophies with the club. It was a happy day for everyone,” Salah told Liverpool’s website.
“I think it’s going to take some time to refresh, but now that it’s all done, we just need to focus on what’s next.”
Since joining Roma in 2017, Salah has become a fundamental part of Jurgen Klopp’s side, making them mass contenders for domestic and European success.
He scored in the 2019 Champions League final win over Tottenham and was the club’s top scorer as they won the Premier League title for the first time in 30 years in 2020.
Last season, Salah was crowned the Premier League Player of the Year by both players and football writers after scoring 31 goals to bring Klopp’s army to the brink of a historic treble.
Liverpool won the League Cup and FA Cup, but missed out on the Premier League title by 1 point behind Manchester City and lost to Real Madrid in the Champions League final 1-0.
“I think you can see in the last five or six years the team is always going up (going up),” added Salah.
“Last season we were close to winning four titles, but unfortunately in the last week of the season we lost two.
“I think we are in a good position to fight for everything. We also have new signings.
“We just have to keep working hard, have a good vision, be positive and go for things again.”
Keeping Salah is a big incentive for Liverpool to continue to succeed under Klopp, who also signed a new contract to continue in charge until 2026 in April.
Liverpool have lost an important player this summer when Sadio Mane joined Bayern Munich after six years at Anfield.
However, Darwin NunezArriving from Benfica for a fee that could rise to a club-record 100 million euros (£85 million, $105 million) softened that blow.
