Liverpool fans will love Mohamed Salah said about Anfield future in Gary Neville response

The Egyptian’s form has understandably seen him linked to Real Madrid and Barcelona given his form for Liverpool in the last two seasons.

Salah has been an immense success for Liverpool since joining from Roma for around £38million in the summer of 2017.

The 27-year-old has produced 72 goals and 30 assists in 108 games and helped the Reds to win the Champions League last season.

He also shared the Premier League Golden Boot with team-mate Sadio Mane and Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, with the trio all netting 22 goals apiece, after he won it the season before with 32 top-flight strikes.

Salah is under contract at Liverpool until 2023 after penning a new long-term deal last year, after his debut season yielded a phenomenal 44 goals.

But Sky Sports pundit and Manchester United legend Gary Neville tipped Salah to leave while speaking on Sky Bet’s Big Debate alongside Liverpool hero and colleague Jamie Carragher.

Neville said: “Salah’s going to leave in the next 12 months, I can see it already.

“He [Carragher] knows, he won’t say it. I can see it, you can feel it, you can smell it, you know when a player’s like…”

But Salah – dubbed ‘The Egyptian King’ by Liverpool fans – insists he is completely at home in Jurgen Klopp’s team as he touched upon the relationship he has with the club’s fan base. 

“I’m happy at Liverpool,” Salah told CNN. 

“I’m happy in the city – I love the fans and they love me. 

“I’m happy at the club.”

Clearly, Klopp is just as delighted to have the Egypt international as he hailed his front three of Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino.

The latter pair were both on target as Liverpool defeated Southampton 2-1 at St Mary’s in the Premier League at the weekend.

Klopp told Liverpool’s official website: “A lot of times in my life I had sensational players always [but] not world-class players.

“Now, thank God I have them and they make the difference. We don’t have to talk about that. 

“Sadio Mane, Bobby Firmino, Mo Salah – these guys in the last situation are really outstanding. 

“They were a constant threat, however tired they are. That’s brilliant and, of course, made the difference. We don’t have to talk about that.” 

The front three have contributed 165 goals and 72 assists since the start of the 2017-18 season and Klopp will hope they are at their best for the visit of Arsenal this weekend (Saturday, 5.30pm).
