On Monday, the “Egyptian King” signed a new contract keeping him with the Reds till 2023 after a record-breaking season. However, Peter Moore has already indicated that Liverpool are in search for the next Mohamed Salah.

“Our primary focus for every pound, Euro, dollar we make is to give it to Jurgen Klopp and our scouting staff and our sporting director and say go buy the best players, go find the next Mohamed Salah,” Moore said on Liverpool’s goals. The businessman officially began his role as Liverpool’s CEO on June 1, 2017 just a few weeks before Salah joined the team.

But Liverpool’s search for the next Mohamed Salah will not be easy. The 26-year-old forward 44 goals for Liverpool last season, 32 of which came in the Premier League. As a result, he set the record for most goals scored in a 38-game season and earned the coveted Golden Boot ahead of Harry Kane.

The Egyptian also put in class performances for the National Team. Not only did he score a brace against Congo, including a 95th minute penalty, to take Egypt to the World Cup for the first time in 28 years, but he also scored Egypt’s only two goals at the World Cup.

Salah’s record breaking season earned him a plethora of awards including the PFA’s Players’ Player of the Year, Premier League Player of the Month three times, CAF African Player of the Year, BBC African Footballer of the Year, and a spot on the PFA Team of the Year.

In addition to being a football/soccer and basketball enthusiast, I am currently pursuing a combined BS/MD degree at VCU. I also currently work as a Pharmacy Technician in my spare time.
