Klopp is “pleased” with Salah’s contract negotiations

The circumstances surrounding Mohamed Salah’s contract, according to Jurgen Klopp, has him “glad.”

An agreement that would keep Egypt forward Mohamed Salah at Liverpool till the end of his career was rumored to be close to being finalized over the weekend, according to reports.

Before Tuesday’s Champions League quarter-final first-leg match against Benfica, Klopp was asked about the contract situation.

And he answered, “I’m happy with it since there’s nothing new to say.

“It’s fantastic. “All I need is for the most important parties to talk to one other.”

Despite the fact that Salah is Liverpool’s leading scorer this season with 28 goals in all competitions, he has only scored once since February.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said: “He might not have scored from open play, but it’s not too significant. For me, it’s all about the quality of the work.

Even though he might make better decisions at times, it’s a difficult job for both Mo and Sadio (Mane) to return from the Africa Cup (of Nations) and be immediately available for us again. That was a once in a lifetime experience.

As long as we keep an eye on him in the gym and on the field, we don’t have to be concerned about his mental state.

Liverpool, who enters Tuesday’s meeting against Benfica injury-free, will play the Portuguese club twice before facing Manchester City on Sunday in the Premier League, a game in which they are one point behind City at the top of the standings.
