Mohamed Salah has put an end to the speculation surrounding his future by signing a new three-year contract at Liverpool.
The forward’s original deal was set to expire next summer and for a while it seemed up in the air whether he and the club were going to come to an agreement over new terms.
Liverpool’s talisman scooped up the Football Writers’ Association Player of the Year award in 2021-22 after helping his team claim a domestic double of the Carabao Cup and FA Cup, while finishing as the Premier League’s joint-top goalscorer with 23, also registering the most assists with 13 to claim the Premier League’s Playmaker award.
He has scored a total of 156 goals in 254 appearances across all competitions for Jurgen Klopp’s side.
The Egyptian told the club website: ““I feel great and [I am] excited to win trophies with the club. 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 has spent the last five years at Anfield, joining from Roma in 2017, and has since developed into a club legend for the Reds. He has won a Premier League, a Champions League (reaching three finals), an FA Cup, a Carabao Cup, a UEFA Super Cup and a Club World Cup. On a personal level, the 30-year-old has won three Premier League Golden Boots (one of which scoring the most goals in an individual campaign with 32), two PFA Players’ Player of the Year awards and one Premier League Player of the Season award.
