Mohamed Salah has signed a new three year contract with , putting to an end speculation that the PFA Player of the Year may be tempted away from Anfield.
Instead Salah, who turned 30 last month, will spend what could be his remaining prime years on Merseyside. Five years on from his move from Roma the Egyptian has established himself as one of the brightest stars in the global game and goes into next season with a record of 156 goals in 254 appearances.
Salah had previously intimated an interest in moving to Spain, an avenue that may yet be available to him when his deal expires in 2025, but for now he is eyeing further silverware at Anfield. "I feel great and [I am] excited to win trophies with the club," he said. "It's a happy day for everyone. It takes a little bit of time, I think, to renew, but now everything is done so we just need to focus on what's next.
"I think you can see in the last five or six years the team was always going [upwards]. Last season we were close to winning four, but unfortunately in the last week of the season we lost two trophies. I think we are in a good position to fight for everything. We have new signings as well. We just need to keep working hard, have a good vision, be positive and go for everything again."
Salah's extension follows on from that of Jurgen Klopp and his coaching staff, who in late April put pen to paper on deals through to 2026. Liverpool had not been able to convince Sadio Mane to sign an extension and sold the Senegal international to Bayern Munich last month, having already secured the services of Darwin Nunez for next season.
