Mohamed Salah pens new five-year deal with Liverpool

Mohamed Salah has penned a new five-year contract with Liverpool.

Salah, 26, joined the Liverpool for £34m from Roma last summer and has scored 44 goals in 52 appearances all competitions for the club.

“I think this news can be seen for what it is; rewarding a person who performed and contributed greatly for the team and the club last season,” manager Jurgen Klopp told Liverpool’s website.

“It demonstrates two things very clearly also — his belief in Liverpool and our belief in him.

“We want world-class talent to see they have a home at Anfield where they can fulfil all their professional dreams and ambitions — we are working hard together to achieve this.

“When someone like Mo Salah commits and says this place is my home now, it speaks very loudly I think.

“Equally, our commitment to him says we see his value and want him to grow even more and get even better within our environment.”

His performances helped Liverpool reach the Champions League final and secure a top-four finish in the Premier League, while he earned himself the PFA and Football Writers’ Association Player of the Year awards.

“The key thing to remember is the best thing about Mo is that he never sees himself as being more important than the team or anyone else within it,” Klopp added.

“He recognises his teammates and this club helped him achieve individual success last season. He sees the individual awards come because he is part of something bigger that is special.

“Mo reflects where we are as a team, I think. Last season was special with many special moments — but we want more.

“We want to be more successful and achieve more together — as the supporters sang so loudly: ‘We’re never gonna stop.’ This has to be the attitude individually and collectively.”
