Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has suggested he will stay at the Premier League club following the departure of manager Juergen Klopp, the Egypt international said late on Monday.

With Klopp’s exit after nearly nine years at the helm and Feyenoord coach Arne Slot officially confirmed as his successor, uncertainties regarding Salah’s future at Liverpool had grown, with his contract expiring in June 2025.


Liverpool rejected a £150m offer from Al Ittihad for the 31-year-old last September, and the forward has again been linked with a move to Saudi Arabia.

Salah scored 25 goals in 44 games in all competitions this season but the only silverware the Anfield side picked up in Juergen Klopp’s final campaign in charge was the League Cup.

“We know that trophies are what count and we will do everything possible to make that happen next season,” Salah posted on X.

“Our fans deserve it and we will fight like hell.”

Salah also posted a message of thanks to Klopp, who guided the Reds to the Champions League and Club World Cup in 2019 and the Premier League title in 2019-20.

“It was great sharing all those trophies and experiences with you over the past seven years,” Salah said as he captioned a picture of himself with the former Liverpool manager.

“I wish you the best of luck for the future and hope we meet again.”

Salah had a public falling-out with Klopp while preparing to come on as a substitute during their draw at West Ham last month, but the German said the argument was “completely resolved” at the start of May.

Liverpool finished third in the Premier League this season.
