‘Salah contract talks not for public’

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has described the current contract situation between the club and striker Mohamed Salah as “completely normal.”

The 29-year-old Egypt international has been one of the key players for the Reds this season, scoring 19 goals and making eight assists in 20 appearances across all competitions.

On the Premier League front, Salah is currently topping the scorers’ chart with 13 goals, four more than second-placed Jamie Vardy of Leicester City who has scored nine while Diogo Jota of Liverpool is third with eight goals.

However, Salah, who joined the Anfield outfit in 2017, has 18 months left on his contract and whether he will extend his stay is still not clear.

Asked on Salah’s contract situation ahead of Liverpool’s trip to face AC Milan in a Champions League fixture, Klopp said as quoted by the club’s official website: “We are talking. Extending a contract with a player like Salah is not a thing you do and you meet for a cup of tea in the afternoon and find an agreement.

“That’s completely normal. There’s really nothing else to say about [it]. Salah speaks about it when he gets asked about it. I can only say a few things because all the rest is not for the public obviously.” – Goal.com
