EPL: Salah commits to Liverpool with new long term deal

Egypt international, Mohamed Salah, has committed his future to Liverpool, after he signed a new long term contract at the club.

Salah has put pen to paper on a new five-year deal that will see him remain at Anfield until the summer of 2023.

The 26-year-old becomes the highest paid player in the history of the club, with the deal representing a form of reward for a remarkable first season at Merseyside.

He was instrumental to Jurgen Klopp’s side run to the final of the 2017/2018 UEFA Champions League season, where he scored ten goals, and a total of 44 goals in 52 appearances in all competitions.

Salah, who joined the Reds from Serie A side, AS Roma for £34m, also played an integral role as Egypt returned to the World Cup, following almost a three decade absence.

Speaking on the deal, his manager Klopp said; “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.

The German also added that it shows how much trust the club has in the former AS Roma star, and the direction the club is heading.

Liverpool fans will be hoping Salah, who was named the Professional Football Writers’ Association Footballer of the year, will continue from where he stopped last season, when he became the first ever player to win three PL player of the month awards.

He scored two goals for his country, as they exited the 2018 World Cup in Russia at the group stages.
