Speaking on the new long-term contract, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said: ‘I think this news can be seen for what it is; rewarding a person who performed and contributed greatly for the team and the club last season.
‘It demonstrates two things very clearly also – his belief in Liverpool and our belief in him.
‘We want world-class talent to see they have a home at Anfield where they can fulfil all their professional dreams and ambitions – we are working hard together to achieve this.
‘When someone like Mo Salah commits and says this place is my home now, it speaks very loudly I think.
