Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah has said his requests for his contract are not crazy and his future at Anfield is not in his hands as talks continue with the Egypt international over signing a new contract with the English Premier League club.
Salah, the Premier League’s top scorer this season with 16 goals, extends his contract with Liverpool until June 2023.
Salah reiterated that he wanted to stay in Liverpool, but added that he had not yet received a suitable offer that reflected his contributions to the club since he joined from Roma in 2017 and led the team to win the Champions League and the English Premier League.
Salah said in an interview with GQ magazine published on Tuesday: I want to stay, but this is not in my hands. It is up to the club. They know what I want. I don’t ask for crazy things. When you ask for something and they show you that they can give you that thing, they should do it because they appreciate what you have done for the club.
“I’m in my fifth year here now,” he added. I know the club well. I love the fans and the fans love me. But with management, they were informed of the situation. It’s in their hands.
Salah is currently in the African Nations Cup, where Egypt plays Nigeria in the opening matches of its Group D later on Tuesday.
Liverpool meet Arsenal in the League Cup semi-finals on Thursday and then face Brentford in the League on Sunday.
