Klopp’s latest Salah update & mixed team news ahead of Brighton – Liverpool FC Roundup

Liverpool head into the weekend with an early kick-off ahead of them tomorrow; Friday’s news is therefore on Jurgen’s presser, pre-game squad fitness news and the latest on Mo’s contract.


Salah contract concerns

Well, if you’re here for positive news on Mohamed Salah‘s deal, we’re sorry in advance.

Jurgen Klopp didn’t have a particularly good outlook when asked about it in his pre-game presser, though was fairly non-committal about what comes next.

“It’s Mo’s decision, pretty much. The club did what the club can do, there’s nothing bad to say about it. It’s all fine. From my point of view, it’s exactly like it should be at this moment in time,” he said.

“Nothing happened further, no signing or rejection or whatever, we just have to wait for that. It’s all completely fine. There’s no rush in that situation.”

Salah’s agent then quickly seemed to respond on social media, in a not very positive way also.
