Champions League

Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp has played down reports that Mohamed Salah is set to commit his long-term future to the club.

Ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League quarterfinal first-leg tie at Benfica, Klopp insisted that negotiations were ongoing.

Salah is believed to be close to agreeing a contract which would see him finish his career at Anfield.

The Egyptian’s existing contract runs out in June 2023 and the 29-year-old previously said he wants to extend his stay at Liverpool but claimed his future “is not in my hands.”

“It is just good. The decisive parties are talking to each other and that’s all I need.”
