Mohamed Salah has signed a new five-year-deal at Liverpool with no release clause.
Salah has committed his long term future to Jurgen Klopp’s side by signing a contract to keep him on Merseyside until 2023.
The new contract puts Salah up there with Virgin Van Dijk and Roberto Firmino as the Reds highest paid players.
His salary is performance based and is thought to include incentives which could take his yearly earnings to beyond £10 million.
Salah has been rewarded with this contract after an outstanding debut season for Liverpool, which saw him bag 44 goals in 52 games.
Following the Egyptian’s £36.9 million move from Roma last year, he played a huge part in Liverpool getting to the champions league final and was crowed the PFA Player of the Year and FWA Footballer of the Year.
Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp, believes that the new deal shows his belief in Salah, and that the winger has belief in the club.
“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.
“It demonstrates two things very clearly also – his belief in Liverpool and our belief in him.
Klopp believes that Salah, who is hailed as the ‘Egyptian King’ at Anfield, does not see himself as more important than the club or any of his teammates.
“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.”
With Roberto Firmino having already signed a contract extension, Klopp’s priority will be getting Sadio Mane to extend his time at Anfield.
