Salah stays! Liverpool’s surprise contract news sent social media wild

Mohamed Salah has signed a new long-term contract extension at Liverpool in a definitive end to months of speculation and conjecture about his immediate future.

The Reds announced on Friday afternoon that the club have reached an agreement with Salah to extend his contract, with the Egyptian striker staying at Anfield until the summer of 2025.

“It’s a happy day for everyone,” Salah said in a statement published on the official Liverpool website. “I think it takes a bit of time to renew but it’s all done now so we just need to focus on what’s next.”

In five years on Merseyside, Salah has played a pivotal role in several successes under Jurgen Klopp, scoring 156 goals in 254 games while winning the Premier League title, Champions League and a domestic cup double in 2021-22, along with a clutch of individual awards.

Liverpool and Salah announce new contract

Liverpool first hinted at their big news with a light-hearted video posted to social media showing Salah looking cool and calm relaxed by the pool before donning his No 11 shirt.

Salah then followed with a still shot of the famous red shirt draped over his shoulders.

The Reds then made the official announcement to confirm that the reigning FWA Footballer of the Year and PFA Player of the Year had put pen to paper to extend his stay beyond his 33rd birthday.

Responding to a tweet sent earlier in the day by Salah’s agent, the official Liverpool Twitter account nudged Ramy Abbas Issa’s ambiguous emoji with a facepalm of its own.

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher had previously responded to Issa’s tweet by speaking on behalf of the perplexed fanbase, dismissing it as “cryptic crap”.

Even revered club legend Sir Kenny Dalglish was moved to express his excitement at Salah’s decision to stay as he announced the “fantastic news”.
