Liverpool’s head coach, Jurgen Klopp, has expressed his lack of concern regarding the rumors linking Mohamed Salah with a potential move to Saudi Arabia. The 31-year-old has been a standout player for Liverpool for over six years, and if he were to depart this season, it could have a negative impact on the team’s prospects of clinching the Premier League title or securing a top-four finish.
Despite Salah having signed a new contract with Liverpool last summer, there’s interest from Saudi club Al-Ittihad to acquire the striker’s services before the transfer window closes on September 1. The departure of Liverpool players Jordan Henderson and Fabinho to the Saudi Pro League has already occurred, and former Reds forward Sadio Mane has also joined the Pro League after his stint with Bayern Munich.
Klopp has chosen to dismiss the speculation surrounding Salah’s potential departure, affirming that the player remains committed to Liverpool. When questioned about the media reports, Klopp stated, “Talk about media stories, nothing to talk about… He is essential and will be. There is nothing there.”
The Liverpool manager emphasized his approach of addressing problems when they truly arise, and he assured fans that Salah’s allegiance to the club is steadfast. Liverpool is set to face Newcastle United, and Klopp spoke positively about the team’s recent performance after Mac Allister’s red card from the previous game was overturned. Klopp praised Allister’s exceptional performance under challenging circumstances and expressed his satisfaction with the player’s contribution.
The manager also revealed that Allister’s contribution came as a bit of a surprise, as the initial plan was to introduce him from the bench later in the game.Share on Facebook «||» Share on Twitter «||» Share on Reddit «||» Share on LinkedIn
