Jurgen Klopp Positive Salah will Sign a New Contract

Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp says he is “very positive” about the prospect of Egyptian star Mohamed Salah extending his contract with Liverpool beyond the end of next season. The 29-year-old said his future is in Liverpool’s hands and that he is not asking for “crazy things” amid reports he wants £300,000-a-week wages.

Responding to that, Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp said: “I know that Mo wants to stay. We want Mo to stay. That’s where we are. It takes time.” “I think it’s in a good place. The fans are not as nervous as [the media] are.” Klopp also said: “I’m very positive about it. It’s nothing to worry about; it’s a normal process.”

Jurgen Klopp Positive Salah Will Sign A New Contract

Salah has scored 148 goals in 229 games for Liverpool since signing from Roma in summer 2017. His streak of goal-scoring form helped Liverpool win a sixth European title in 2019 and end a 30-year wait for the English Premier League title the next season. Klopp suggested that Salah’s agent added another dimension to their discussions.

He said: “There are so many things in negotiations.” The German tactician said it is a third party thing. Salah’s representative Ramy Abbas Issa attracted attention on social media in August when he took to social media to tweet “I hope they are watching”, which was in relation to his player’s man of the match award against Norwich City.
