Watch: ‘I can’t see myself ever playing against Liverpool’ says Salah

Liverpool star Mohamed Salah has opened up about his desire to stay at the club amid rumours over the current situation of his contract in a recent interview with Sky Sports. 

Salah, whose current deal with the Red’s will expire at the end of next season, said in the interview: “I would love to stay until the last day of my football.

“At the moment I cannot see myself ever playing against Liverpool, that would make me sad.”

However, the Egyptian international, who is the current Premier League top goalscorer, also went on to say that the future of his career was not in his control, adding: “It’s not in my hands. It depends upon the club.”

Speculation over the future of Salah, who recently scored in his ninth consecutive game for the Merseyside team – a new club record – has been superb since the beginning of the campaign with teams including Manchester City and Barcelona reportedly interested in signing the forward as the expiration date of his current contract draws closer.

There is reason to be optimistic for Liverpool fans though, with the club rumoured to be lining up to offer the winger a new deal worth up to £500,000 per week.
