“I’m in terrific shape, and I’m eager to help the club win championships. Today is a joyful day for everyone. We have a decent chance of winning everything”, the versatile winger bemused.
During his tenure at Anfield, Salah has won the Champions League, Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup, Fifa Club World Cup, and Uefa Super Cup.
While playing for Klopp’s team, he also earned or shared three Premier League Golden Boots and twice received the PFA Player of the Year award.
“Without a doubt, Mo’s prime years are yet to come. And that’s saying something considering how legendary the first five seasons here have been “Klopp added.
The renewal comes as a big boost after the departure of fellow forward Sadio Mane to Bayern Munich this summer but they have since recruited Benfica and Uruguay striker Darwin Nunez for an initial £64m to offset the loss.
Liverpool won the FA Cup and Carabao Cup this season but were in the running for a quadruple until the final week of the season, falling just short in the Premier League and losing the Champions League final to Real Madrid.
