Jurgen Klopp responds to speculation linking Salah with Liverpool exit


Reports coming out from Spanish media over the past week had claimed that the Egypt international isn’t happy at the Merseyside outfit.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has rejected suggestions forward Mohamed Salah is eager to leave the club and join Real Madrid or Barcelona next summer.

The 28-year-old Egypt international, who has won the Golden Boot twice since his €42m move from Roma in the summer of 2017, is once again leading the goalscoring charts with 13 goals in 14 games in the 2020/21 English top-flight campaign.

Salah ignited speculations over his future when he recently refused to rule out a move to Real Madrid or Barcelona in the future. The Egyptian told AS in an interview that his future “is in the club’s hands” when the Spanish news publication asked him about his future plans.

However, when Klopp was asked to comment on his forward’s statement, the German manager claimed that he had “nothing really [to say]” and that the player is in a ‘good mood’ ahead of Liverpool’s Sunday’s clash with relegation-threatened West Brom.

The reigning Premier League champions are going into the Boxing Day top of the Premier League, becoming only the first side in English top-flight history to sit top of the table at Christmas for three successive seasons.
