Mo Salah finally speaks out over Liverpool future: ‘Not in my hands…’

Mo Salah finally speaks out over Liverpool future: ‘Not in my hands…’

 

Liverpool star Mohamed Salah has, on Friday, provided an insight into his future with the club.

The Egyptian king shining

The subject of Salah’s future has of course taken its position centre stage in the media over recent weeks.

This comes amid Liverpool’s efforts to tie their star man down for the long-term.

The early weeks of the season have seen Salah establish himself as not only the Premier League’s standout performer but, in the eyes of many, the most in-form player in world football.

After netting a goal of the season contender during a showdown with champions Manchester City prior to the international break, the Egyptian international followed up with another dazzling effort last weekend, en route to a 5-0 drubbing of Watford:

All told, across the 2021/22 campaign to date, Salah has racked up twelve goals and four assists in just eleven appearances.

‘Depends what the club want…’

As such, it should come as little surprise to hear that those in a position of power at Anfield have begun stepping up their efforts to tie the gifted wide-man down for the foreseeable future.

Salah’s current terms on Merseyside are due to expire in the summer of 2023, opening the door to a potential departure down the line.

Recent reports, meanwhile, have pointed towards mammoth £400,000-per-week wage demands on the part of the Egyptian, casting a renewal into doubt.

In turn, speaking in an interview with Sky Sports ahead of his side’s showdown with Manchester United this weekend, Salah was inevitably drawn on his stance when it comes to committing to Liverpool for the long-term.

And, though the former Chelsea man was keen to assure that he would be more than happy to see out the remainder of his playing days on Merseyside, significantly, Salah went on to add that the situation, as things stand, is ‘not in my hands’:

‘If you ask me, I would love to stay until the last day of my football career, but I can’t say much about that – it’s not in my hands.’

‘It depends on what the club want, not on me. At the moment I can’t see myself ever playing against Liverpool. That would make me sad. It’s hard, I don’t want to talk about it, but it would make me really sad.’
