Mohamed Salah reportedly extended his long-term deal with Liverpool FC to 2025, the club announced on Friday. The forward, who helped Jurgen Klopp’s team win a domestic cup double and was voted the FWA Footballer of the Year and the PFA Players’ Player of the Year for 2021–22, has committed his future to the Reds by signing the contract on Friday.
Salah will now prolong his stay at Anfield after five years with the team, extending a tenure that has already produced an incredible 156 goals in 254 games.
“I feel terrific and [I] am anxious to win titles with the club,” No. 11 said to Liverpoolfc.com. Today is a joyful day for everyone.
“I believe that renewing takes some time, but now that everything has been completed, all that is left is for us to concentrate on what comes next.
“I think it’s clear that the team has been improving over the past five or six years.” We came very close to winning four last season, but regrettably, we lost two trophies in the final week.
We are well-positioned to battle for everything, I believe. New signings have also been made. We only need to keep up the excellent work, have a clear goal in mind, remain optimistic, and try everything again.
Salah joined Liverpool in a transfer from AS Roma in June 2017, and the Egyptian striker had an immediate effect, scoring 44 goals in all competitions in his first season.
With 32 of those coming from the Premier League, the division’s record for most goals scored in a season of 38 games was set.
He received the first of his three Golden Boots thanks to his performance, along with the FWA Footballer of the Year, PFA Players’ Player of the Year, and Premier League Player of the Season awards.
Although it ended in sadness for everyone involved, he would assist the Reds in reaching the Champions League final against Real Madrid in Kyiv.
Salah was crucial to Klopp’s squad, though, as they scored 97 points and lost just once the next season to launch a title bid in the Premier League.
Liverpool won the Champions League final in Madrid by defeating Tottenham Hotspur, and Salah scored the game’s first goal from the penalty spot, even though they ultimately lost the championship by one point.
Then, the Reds quickly blazed their way to 99 points in the Premier League the following season, ending a 30-year wait to be crowned league champions, having earlier won the UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup that term. However, that campaign was interrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic in its later stages.
Despite having a challenging 2020–21 that saw many of their games played in secret, Klopp’s team finished third thanks in large part to Salah’s form, who scored 31 goals across all competitions.
The attacker surpassed the 30-goal mark once more last season, helping Liverpool win two domestic cups and come close to winning both the Premier League and the Champions League. In acknowledgment of his form, he once more received the FWA and PFA awards for the year’s greatest player. He also added the Premier League Playmaker award for the most assists to his most recent Golden Boot.
The 30-year-old, who turned 30 last month, is presently ninth on the list of Liverpool’s all-time leading scorers, and this new contract offers him the chance to move up even further on that list and aid Klopp’s team in their pursuit of more championships in the upcoming seasons.
Salah continued, “My message [to the fans] is that the team’s players want to give our all next season to win every trophy.
We will continue to win trophies together if you support us and give us a strong push, as is customary.
