Jurgen Klopp has called for patience as Liverpool continue to negotiate a new contract with star man Mohamed Salah.
Klopp said in an interview:
“We’re talking – and extending the contract for a player like Mo is not one where you meet for a cup of tea and find an agreement in the afternoon,” said Klopp.
He added: “Mo is fine, I’m fine. What we all want is clear. Things like this take time.
“I think what we all want is clear things. It needs time, that is it.”
Salah is in the form of his career this season, already registering 13 goals and 11 assists in the Premier League, as well as six further goals in Europe.
The forward’s current deal is set to expire at the end of the 2022/23 campaign and with both Barcelona and Real Madrid said to be interested, Liverpool are keen to tie him down on a longer-term contract.
Talks have been underway for some time and Salah provided an update on the situation in a recent interview.
“I said it several times, if the decision is up to me, I want to stay in Liverpool. But the decision is in the hands of the management and they have to solve this issue,” he said.
