Egyptian international Mohamed  Salah has pledged his future to Liverpool by signing a new five year deal.

The Egyptian superstar, coveted by every side in the world due to his sensational debut campaign at Anfield, ended any prospect of a swift departure.

Manager Jurgen Klopp said Salah’s reaffirming of his commitment was a sign of the club’s progress, closely following that of Roberto Firmino. Sadio Mane is also in line for a reward for being part of the most dynamic attacking trio in Europe last season.

“I think this news can be seen for what it is; rewarding a person who performed and contributed greatly for the team and the club last season,” Klopp told Liverpool’s website.

“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.

“Equally, our commitment to him says we see his value and want him to grow even more and get even better within our environment.

“The key thing to remember is the best thing about Mo is that he never sees himself as being more important than the team or anyone else within it. He recognises his teammates and this club helped him achieve individual success last season. He sees the individual awards come because he is part of something bigger that is special.

“Mo reflects where we are as a team, I think. 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’. This has to be the attitude individually and collectively.”

Liverpool return to pre-season training today, although Salah is among those with extra time off after World Cup commitments..
