Liverpool news: Mo Salah makes transfer declaration in Carragher chat | Football | Sport

Mohamed Salah has claimed that Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool departure at the end of the season will not play a part in any decision over his own future. Salah was the subject of strong Saudi Arabian interest last summer and the Reds are expected to receive similar offers when the transfer market opens up again.

Klopp’s exit marks the end of an era at Anfield and he is the only Liverpool head coach that Salah has known, adding fuel to the fire over rumours that he may decide to leave at the same time as the German boss.

Salah’s contract is up at the end of next season and Liverpool will have a decision to make over whether they decide to cash in on their talisman, enter the final 12 months of his deal and risk losing the Egyptian forward on a free transfer or hand him a new contract.

He sat down with Reds icon Jamie Carragher to preview Manchester City’s visit to Anfield, when Salah was put on the spot and directly asked if Klopp leaving could persuade him to exit at the same time.

“No, no – it’s life, it’s part of life now that everything moves,” Salah said in their Sky Sports interview. “Players left the club already for, very important players left the club. The manager is also very important for the club and he is leaving the club. One day I will leave the club so, but no.”

Fans will be overjoyed at the prospect of keeping Salah beyond this season, particularly as he continues to build up a partnership with Darwin Nunez. He joked with Carragher that it has been “tricky” to work with the Uruguayan as he is not used to such a direct forward after years of playing alongside Roberto Firmino, but is enjoying the fruits of their labour.

Salah added: “I think it’s more tricky for me than it’s more tricky for him! Because I need to understand his game but he’s a great player for sure but I always see it that I need to adapt to the players who are next to me, alongside me…

“He’s kind of a different player, we never had that quality before. He loves to run in the space, he doesn’t like the ball much to his feet which is unique because he’s really fast.

“So he keeps looking at me because he knows that I can give him the ball easily in a space that he can finish the situation. His numbers this season are improving a lot which is great for us.”
