Mohamed Salah: Jurgen Klopp’s Departure Doesn’t Shake My Commitment To Liverpool

Mohamed Salah

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah reassured fans in an interview with Sky Sports ahead of the crucial match against title rivals Manchester City.

The Egyptian star stating that manager jurgen klopp‘s impending departure from Anfield this summer would not sway his commitment to the club.

When directly questioned about the potential impact of Klopp’s exit on his own future with Liverpool, Salah confidently asserted that such a change in leadership would not alter his dedication to the team.

“No. It’s part of life now, that everything moves. Players have left already, very important players.

 

 

The manager is also very important for the club and is leaving.

“One day I will leave the club, but [Klopp’s departure doesn’t affect my future].”

ESPN reported in September that Salah had been the subject of an offer worth up to £150 million ($190m) from Saudi Arabian club Al Ittihad, which Liverpool swiftly rejected.

Salah is under contract at Liverpool until June 2025.

The Egypt international said he was stunned when Klopp announced in a team meeting in January that he would be leaving, instead believing Klopp would announce he would be extending his stay.

“The manager’s agent was there at the training ground and I thought: ‘Oh, he’s renewing his contract,'” Salah said.

“Five minutes before the meeting, Virgil [van Dijk] said:

‘Do you know what the meeting is about?’ [I] said no. He said: ‘The manager is leaving.'”

Salah, who has 205 goals in 334 games for Liverpool, has been instrumental in the club’s success under Klopp, helping the club win the Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup and two Carabao Cups.
