Liverpool have announced that Mohamed Salah has signed a new long-term contract at Anfield.
Salah only joined Liverpool last summer but during his first campaign, the Egyptian scored 44 goals in 52 appearances and picked up a number of individual accolades, including the PFA Players’ Player of the Year and the Premier League Golden Boot.
Real Madrid had been linked with a speculative move for the 26-year-old, but Salah has instead decided to commit his future to the Merseyside giants.
Manager Jurgen Klopp told the club’s official website: “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.
“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 fulfill 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.”
The news comes on the same day that Liverpool begin pre-season training ahead of the new season, but Salah will not be involved after representing Egypt at the World Cup.
