Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp revealed that he is positive about the talks between Liverpool and Mohamed Salah with regard to a contract extension. Salah has 18 months left on his contract but admitted that his future depends on the club and he would never leave if given the option. Liverpool managed to sign a number of players on long-term contracts before the season but Salah remains the only player yet to put pen to paper.
“We are in really good conversations,” Jurgen Klopp said about the Mohamed Salah contract negotiations. “I want it to happen, but when? I couldn’t care less.”
“We are not close to signing a player but I thought about it and yes, it will be influential, definitely,” he added. “If a player is not vaccinated at all, he is a constant threat for all of us… From an organizational point of view, it gets really messy. If you really want to follow the protocols, it is really difficult to do it. If one (player) gets Covid, and others are around him, they are in isolation… So of course it will be influential. We are not going to create a building for unvaccinated players. Hopefully, it will not be necessary.”
“If you ask me, I would love to stay until the last day of my football career, but I can’t say much about that – it’s not in my hands.” Mohamed Salah said. “It depends on what the club wants, not on me. At the moment I can’t see myself ever playing against Liverpool. That would make me sad. It’s hard, I don’t want to talk about it, but it would make me really sad. At the moment I don’t see myself playing against Liverpool but let’s see what will happen in the future.”
