Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp revealed that he is not involved in contract talks between Mohamed Salah and the club. He said he is only focused on the Egyptian’s performances on the pitch. The club recently has signed contract extensions with a host of players. Salah is the only big name yet to sign a contract extension with less than two years left on his current contract. The contract speculation has not had a bearing on his performances with Salah scoring four goals in his last five appearances for Liverpool.
“There’s nothing really to say, especially from me as I am not involved,” Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said. “The only thing I’m really interested in is how Mo looks, how sharp and committed he is at the moment, and that’s absolutely spot on. He looks really good. There is nothing else to say.”
“He is not ready,” said Klopp about Roberto Firmino. “Bobby won’t start training with the team until some time next week. Then we will have to wait and see.”
“Three games a week is normal but Sunday-Wednesday-Saturday is a tough one,” said Klopp about the busy schedule. “It’s the shortest you can get in a normal week. We came through (against Milan) and the boys did really well. We will have to make changes again, that’s clear.”
“Sadio looks really good and sharp,” said Klopp about Sadio Mane. “We talk about this when a striker misses some chances but the number of chances he had, that’s actually the important stuff.”
