Only a few months after speculation linking him with a move away from Liverpool, Mohamed Salah has spoken about 100 per cent commitment to the club in an encouraging sign he wants to stay.
Salah, 28, has produced arguably the best three seasons of his career since his move to Liverpool from AS Roma in 2017, winning the Premier League Golden Boot twice, Player of the Year once and the league title last term along with the 2019 UEFA Champions League.
Speculation mounted that he may leave Anfield in December after he expressed his disappointment at not being made Reds captain for a UEFA Champions League game.
The revelation came following tension between Salah and the club when he left for international duty in Egypt but contracted COVID-19 after attending his brother’s wedding.
However, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has always insisted Salah is a huge part of their plans and pointed to the fact he has a contract until mid-2023.
Salah, for the first time since the story broke, moved to dispel any speculation, insisting he’s 100 per cent committed to the club when speaking to Norwegian channel TV2.
“I do not know,” Salah when asked about his future. “If you ask, I say I want to stay here as long as I can, but, as I have said before, it is in the hands of the club.
“I will always give 100 per cent to the last minute I am in this club and I want to win as many trophies as I can.
“And I want to give 100 per cent to the people, who show me love all the time.”
Salah is the current top scorer in the Premier League with 13 strikes in the 2020-21 campaign but Liverpool’s recent lack of goals has seen them go on a four-game winless run and slip to fourth.
