Yet, this irresistible, unflappable, and terrifyingly efficient Egyptian will walk out of Anfield for nothing in 2023 if his contract situation is not sorted. Milan are currently on course to win Serie A, Liverpool’s team full of substitutes still dominated the possession.
Liverpool took the lead in the second half after a brain freeze from Tomori, led to the Englishman mis-controlling a pass and opening a route to goal for Sadio Mane. The Senegalese star’s effort was stopped by Maignan, and into Origi’s vicinity, and the striker nodded the ball home from 12 yards.
Salah has already conveyed his desire to stay at Anfield, even suggesting he would consider remaining on Merseyside until the end of his career. “I said it several times, if the decision is up to me, I want to stay in Liverpool,” Salah said in an interview Egyptian broadcaster MBC Masr TV.
With alarm bells appearing to ring at Anfield, Klopp was quick to de-escalate the inevitable questions posed after Salah’s comments; suggesting the interview may have been interpreted incorrectly. “But I’m not sure if he gave the interview in English or if it got translated from Arabic into English, that is a massive issue,” Klopp said before their trip to the San Siro.
