Mo Salah Signs New 5-year-Deal with Liverpool

Mohamed Salah has put an end to speculation about his future by signing a new five-year contract with Liverpool.

Salah, 26, became the one of the hottest properties in Europe after a sensational debut season at Anfield following his £35m switch from Roma last summer.

The Egypt forward scored 44 goals in 52 appearances for the club, including a Premier League high of 32, as Liverpool reached the Champions League final.

His performances also helped him win last season’s Professional Footballers’ Association Player of the Year award and Football Writers’ Association Footballer of the Year.

Speaking on his new deal, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said: “It demonstrates two things very clearly his belief in Liverpool and our belief in him.”

“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.

“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.”

Salah recovered in time from a shoulder injury to score two goals at the World Cup as Egypt bowed out in the group stages.
