Mohamed Salah’s new deal does not contain release clause, Liverpool fans react

Mohamed Salah had a disappointing end to a scintillating season for Liverpool as he dislocated his shoulder in the Champions League final and limped out of the group stages at the World Cup with Egypt.

His mood has certainly changed now, though, as he has put pen to paper on a new long-term contract at Anfield.

The club have not specified the length of the deal, but according to the Liverpool Echo, Salah is now tied to the Merseyside outfit until 2023, and more importantly, a release clause has not been inserted.

During the attacker’s prolific first season at Liverpool, in which he scored 44 goals in all competitions, he reportedly attracted interest from other clubs.

In the past, the Reds have lost key players, including Luis Suarez and Philippe Coutinho, to Barcelona, and fears grew among the fanbase when Salah started getting linked to Real Madrid in the media.

News of his contract extension, which is likely to include a huge pay rise, will allow supporters to relax for a moment.

However, Coutinho also signed a new deal before leaving the club less than a year later, so fresh contracts do not always equal long-term commitment.

Nevertheless, Liverpool fans have been left overjoyed by the news that Salah does not have a release clause written into the new terms.
