Klopp is very optimistic about Salah’s contract negotiations


LONDON: Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said he was optimistic that Mohamed Salah has signed a new contract with club of the Premier League, adding that contract negotiations are not something to worry about. The Egyptian striker Salah, top scorer in the English Premier League in this season with 16 goals, he ends with Liverpool in 2023 and has repeatedly confirmed his willingness to continue with the club. Between the two sides are in negotiations for the renewal of the contract are in progress, e in an interview with GQ magazine, 29-year-old Salah said he wasn’t asking for “crazy things”, but added it was up to the club. And the topic inevitably shifted to Salah when Klopp spoke at his press conference ahead of Liverpool’s League Cup semi-final match against Arsenal on Thursday. “I’m very optimistic about that, but I don’t think it makes sense to speak on behalf of the fans because I’m sure the fans aren’t as nervous as you are,” said Klopp. “They know the club for a long time and have known people here who have been dealing with different things for a long time, so I think there is reason enough to be positive. But until that is done, we can’t say anything about it. “” But good conversations, that’s what I can say, “he added. Salah, the former Chelsea forward, played a key role in Liverpool’s success under Klopp’s lead, scoring 111 goals in English Premier League in 4 and a half seasons at Anfield. Maybe his interview with GQ magazine, in which he claimed that his continuation or his departure “is not in his hands”, has worried Liverpool fans, who adore him and chant his name with passion. “At the moment, it’s dangerous to do these interviews,” Klopp said. We know what Mo means, we want him to stay. This is the situation now. These things take time and I can’t change it. “There are a lot of things in the negotiations. There is also a third party in presence of his agent, there is no need to worry It’s a normal process. “The first leg of the League Cup semi-final was supposed to have been played last week at the Arsenal stadium, but the match was postponed due to the Covid-19 situation in Liverpool, which led to the closure of the training venue of the club. Anfield is now hosting the first leg and Klopp says he now has a strong squad to choose from, despite the absence of Salah and Sadio Mane for their participation in the Africa Cup. Full-back Trent Alexander-Arnold and goalkeeper Alisson are ready after being absent for a period due to Covid-19. “All players who are not injured or who have traveled in Africa can play, “said the German coach. Trent and Alison trained yesterday. Divock Origi and Thiago did not train. That’s the problem. (Reuters)
