While reacting to the news, German and Liverpool’s manager Klopp who was happy both for the player and the club had this to say on the club’s website. He said:
“It demonstrates two things very clearly also his belief in Liverpool and our belief in him.
“We want world-class talent to see they have a home at Anfield where they can fulfil all their professional dreams and ambitions – we are working hard together to achieve this. When someone like Mo Salah commits and says this place is my home now, it speaks very loudly I think.”
He continued by saying that at just 26, Salah still needs a lot of room for improvement:
“grow even more and get even better”
“Mo reflects where we are as a team, I think,” he said. “Last season was special with many special moments – but we want more. We want to be more successful and achieve more together – as the supporters sang so loudly, ‘we’re never gonna stop’.”
