Jurgen Klopp: This is Mohamed Salah's club now


Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp expressed his delight with Mohamed Salah's contract extension and says the club belongs to him now.

After months of speculation, the Egyptian forward signed a new three-year deal with the Reds that will reportedly see him earn in excess of £350,000 a week.

With Salah now the highest-earning player in the squad, Klopp joked that the club is now his and insists the best is yet to come from the forward.

“This is a special treat for our supporters to enjoy their weekend even more. I’m sure there will be some celebrations for this news tonight,” the manager told Liverpool's official website.

“Really pleased – really, really pleased. It’s the best decision for us and best decision for him. He belongs with us I think. This is his club now.

“Of course it has taken a little time but that’s absolutely OK and the best things are always worth waiting for anyway. Mo is one of the best players in the world; it’s only normal there are things to sort when you are at his level. So big credit to Julian Ward and Mike Gordon for guiding us to this destination.

“I have no doubt Mo’s best years are still to come. And that’s saying something, because the first five seasons here have been the stuff of legend. Fitness-wise, he’s a machine – in the most incredible shape. He works hard on it and he gets his rewards. His ability and his skill level gets higher each season, and his decision-making has gone to another level also.

“He is adored by his teammates. As coaches we know we work with someone special. And the supporters have crowned him a king. So, very cool. “It is just great news. It makes me smile thinking about it. He stays with us for longer and it means we can achieve more together.”
