Klopp impressed as Salah signs new 5yr deal with Liverpool

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has hailed Mohamed Salah’s decision to commit to the team after the forward signed a new five-year contract with the club.

The Egypt international joined the Reds from AS Roma last summer and has scored 44 goals in 52 appearances, helping the club finish fourth in the league and reaching the final of the Champions League.

26-year-old Salah signed the new deal which runs until 2023 and does not contain a release clause.

“It (signing of a new deal) demonstrates two things very clearly – his belief in Liverpool and our belief in him,” said Klopp.

He added: “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.”

Salah, who was the top scorer in the Premier League last season, netting 32 goals – the most by a player in a 38-game campaign – to win the Golden Boot, also said he is “very happy to say” he has signed a new contract with the club.

“I know we can achieve a lot of things together,” he said.

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