Liverpool boss Klopp optimistic about new Salah contract

SoccerNews in English Premier League 19 Dec 2021


Jurgen Klopp has said Liverpool are “in really good conversations” with star player Mohamed Salah about signing a new deal at Anfield.

The Egyptian has proven himself to be one of the best players in the world in recent years and has had a sensational campaign to date, sitting six clear of his nearest rival at the top of the Premier League scoring charts on 15.

However, with his current deal on Merseyside due to expire at the end of next season, talk has begun as to whether he will sign a new one and extend his stay at the club where he has won the Champions League, Super Cup, Club World Cup and Premier League.

Ahead of Liverpool’s trip to Tottenham on Sunday, Klopp spoke to Sky Sports and allayed some fans’ fears regarding Salah, insisting that talks are happening and have been positive. 

“How we see it, we are in really good conversations. That’s it,” he said. “I couldn’t care less when it will happen, to be honest. I want it to happen, but when? I couldn’t care less.

“We’re in good conversations, that’s it. That’s the answer.”

Salah has registered 146 goals and 52 assists in 224 games after joining Liverpool from Roma in 2017, and has managed an impressive 22 goals and nine assists in 23 games so far in all competitions this season.

If the 29-year-old scores or assists on Sunday he will overtake Jamie Vardy (15) as the player to have at least one goal involvement in the most consecutive Premier League games.

The Reds go into the game at Spurs in second place in the Premier League, having won eight consecutive games in all competitions.

They have won the past six league meetings with the north London outfit and lost just once in 17 such games, while the last league defeat they suffered in the month of December was against Bournemouth five years ago.
