Liverpool simply wouldn’t be the same without Mohamed Salah, and he’s not going anywhere anytime soon. The Egyptian striker is set to become Liverpool’s highest-paid player after signing a new three-year contract extension with the Reds.

Salah’s new deal will have him earning £350,000 a week and it lasts until at least 2025.  Since moving from Roma to Anfield, Salah has scored 156 goals in 254 appearances with Liverpool, winning the Champions League, Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup, FIFA Club World Cup, and UEFA Super Cup along the way.

Salah said that he feels great after signing a contract extension with Liverpool, adding it’s a happy day for everyone because they’re in a good position to fight for everything and win even more trophies.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp echoed his statement, saying Salah’s new deal is a special treat for the team’s supporters.

“I have no doubt Mo’s best years are still to come. And that’s saying something because the first five seasons here have been the stuff of legend… It’s the best decision for us and the best decision for him. He belongs with us I think. This is his club now,” said Klopp in a statement.

Re-signing Salah was crucial for Liverpool after they lost Sadio Mane to Bayern Munich this summer, but they quickly recruited the Benfica striker Darwin Nunez to replace him.
