Klopp on Mo Salah’s contract negotiation.

0 9

Klopp speaks on Mo Salah’s contract extension as he also said the Egyptian might not have the chance for Ballon d’Or award.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has refused to be drawn on progress regarding the forward’s contract renewal at the club.

Salah has been in fine form and has scored 10 goals in 10 matches in all competitions this season.

Klopp confirmed in August that the club had begun discussions on a contract extension with the Eyptian.

The forward’s contract with Liverpool runs until summer 2023 as Salah is yet to extend his contract with the Reds.

When asked if Salah’s form makes contract negotiations easier Klopp said “Pfffft…I don’t know, we will see”.

Salah has also been nominated for the Ballon d’Or but Klopp is unsure about his chances against Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Robert Lewandowski.

“Ballon d’Or? I have no idea how you win it. Champions League final, most goals, it might be difficult for Mo,” Klopp said.

“If it’s about performances then he has a chance. Internally he always got the recognition. Outside, I don’t know. He has performed for years at a high level for us.

“Whatever you want to write positively about Mo, do it, but let’s now focus on Atletico Madrid [whom Liverpool face in the Champions League on Tuesday].”
