Mohamed Salah has ended speculation about his Liverpool future by signing a new three-year contract.

Mohamed Salah signs three-year extension at Anfield; Forward’s previous contract was due to expire at the end of next season; FWA Footballer of the Year and the PFA Players’ Player of the Year for 2021/22, Salah has scored 156 goals in 254 appearances so far in his Anfield career.

The Egyptian’s previous contract was due to expire next summer. His new terms, in excess of £350,000 a week, makes him the highest-paid player in the club’s history.

The deal still fits into the club’s sustainable wage structure and is incentivised with scoring bonuses.

“I feel great and [I am] excited to win trophies with the club. It’s a happy day for everyone,” Salah said.

“It takes a little bit of time, I think, to renew, but now everything is done so we just need to focus on what’s next.

“I think you can see in the last five or six years the team was always going [upwards]. Last season we were close to winning four, but unfortunately in the last week of the season we lost two trophies.

“I think we are in a good position to fight for everything. We have new signings as well. We just need to keep working hard, have a good vision, be positive and go for everything again.”
