Mohamed Salah has committed his future to Liverpool by saying that the amazing way the 2017/18 season has panned out is just the beginning of his time on Merseyside.
When Luis Suarez joined Barcelona in 2014, it genuinely felt like Liverpool would not find a player that would come close to replicating his output or influence. Since he left, Philippe Coutinho transformed into one of the most talented attacking midfielders in all of Europe.
The Brazilian soon followed in Suarez’ footsteps and traded Merseyside for Catalonia. Despite having already signed Mohamed Salah, nobody expected the Egyptian to do what he has this season.
Alas, with 43 goals and 15 assists in all competitions, he has surpassed what Suarez achieved at Liverpool in terms of output in his best season.
With two weeks until the Champions League final, untrustworthy reports from Spain have surfaced, indicating that Salah could join Real Madrid this summer for up to €200 million.
The player himself has completely ruled out these reports, leaving absolutely no loophole for clickbait articles to exploit.
At Liverpool’s annual awards ceremony, Salah declared: “I’m going nowhere.
“I’m very happy here, I’m very happy and everything is fine. We have two games now starting with a game on Sunday. It’s a very important game and then the Champions League final but I’m very happy here.”
Salah continued: “Of course I have got ambitions for the future with Liverpool. As you can see we had a great season and now we are in the Champions League final and everyone is excited.
“This is just the start. This is my first year here and it is the same for some other players. I didn’t watch all the games last season of the team but this year we have had an unbelievable year.
“We are very comfortable about playing in the Champions League next season. On the way to the final we beat top teams like Man City and Roma. It is just the beginning for this team.”
I am absolutely made up to hear Salah sees his future at Liverpool and given the impact he has had at the club, there is no reason he cannot help Klopp and co. usher in a golden generation at Anfield.
