Liverpool chairman Tom Werner speaks about Salah’s future with club
After his return to the Premier League by joining Liverpool, several reports linked Salah to Real Madrid and Bayern Munich after an impressive debut season at Liverpool in which he scored 44 goals across all competitions and collected a number of prestigious awards.
All eyes are on Salah and his teammates now after they reached the UEFA Champions League final for the first time in 11 years. They will be facing 12-time winners Real Madrid in the final game in Kiev on Saturday, with the 25-year-old winger hoping to become the only second Arab to lift the title after Algeria’s Rabah Madjer.
“I have to say how privileged I am as a supporter to be able to witness the achievements of Mo this season,” the club chairman said. “He’s one of only three Liverpool players ever to score 40 goals in a season. That in itself is extraordinary.”
Despite interest from European clubs that inquired about him, Salah has revealed before that he is not considering leaving the Merseyside club anytime soon. This was also echoed by his agent Ramy Abbas.
“We’re privileged to be able to enjoy the play of Mo Salah and I believe he’s going to be even better next season,” Werner added.
The club is expected to give Salah an improved contract that can further encourage him to stay at Anfield and dismiss any offers, especially that he is expected to shine with the Egyptian national team in the World Cup in Russia.
“I am confident. I think he’s enjoying his experience at Liverpool.
“Mo loves his team-mates and he feels the love from his supporters. I’m sure whenever they sing their song for him, I’m sure it registers.
“I know he’s very happy at Liverpool so I’m optimistic that he will be playing for us for a long time.”
