Mohamed Salah Signs Long-Term Contract with Liverpool
After a brilliant season with the Reds, Mohamed Salah decided to extend his contract with the club. Today, the 26-year-old forward shared a video on social media letting Liverpool fans know he is happy to stay at Anfield.
The news about Salah staying in Liverpool is not much of a surprise. The Egyptian showed a stunning performance last season. He scored 32 goals during the 2017/18 Premier League season and netted a total of 44 goals for Liverpool. Mohamed also broke some records during his debut season with the Reds.
Mo was the first player to win three Premier League’s Player of the Month awards within the same season. The Egyptian added the Premier League Golden Boot to his list of accolades this season in addition to winning the PFA Player of the Year award.
Extending the contract with Salah was the most logical step for the club. As the Reds boss, Jurgen Klopp explained, Liverpool simply rewarded Salah for his phenomenal performance last season. Klopp also emphasised that extending the contract with Mo is a sign of trust the Liverpool forward has in the club. He also added that the trust is mutual. “When someone like Mo Salah commits and says this place is my home now, it speaks very loudly I think,” said Klopp.
The 26-year-old has established an excellent connection with Klopp right from the start. As Salah explained, he owes a part of last season’s success to no one other than Klopp. “He knows how to get the most from his attacking players,” said Salah.
According to best Android betting apps, Real Madrid and Barcelona were top contenders for taking Salah off of Liverpool’s hands. With the latest news from Liverpool about Mohamed’s five-year contract extension, there’s no more room for transfer talks. Liverpool’s star player has already decided about his future, and based on his reaction, Salah is more than happy to stay with Liverpool.
“My first year at the club was an incredible experience for me and my family. I have to thank everyone at Liverpool and also you, our supporters,” said Salah.
