Mohamed Salah Signs New Five-Year Liverpool Deal


Amid a controversy and tension whether Egyptian Star, Mohamed Salah will leave Liverpool FC or not, the 2017/2018 PFA player of the year has extended his contarct deal to five years.

Egyptian star rewarded for remarkable debut campaign on Merseyside – and his new deal contains no release clause Mohamed Salah has signed a new long term contract at Liverpool, which will keep him at Anfield until 2023.

The Egyptian star has been rewarded for his incredible debut season on Merseyside with an improved five-year deal.

Salah scored 44 goals in all competitions following his £36.9 million ($48.6m) switch from Roma last summer, picking up the PFA Player of the Year, Footballer of the Year and Golden Boot awards in the process, and will be a key figure as Jurgen Klopp looks to build a team that can continue to compete for major honours.

Crucially, given widespread reports of interest from Real Madrid, Salah’s new deal contains no release clause, with the 26-year-old and his representatives happy to commit their future to the club.

Salah, it is understood, is happy on Merseyside and appreciates the role Klopp and the club have played in his development. The former Basel man is enjoying an extended holiday following a disappointing and draining World Cup campaign, and is expected back at Melwood later this month.

Reflecting on the news of Salah’s new deal, Klopp told Liverpool’s official website: “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.

“Equally, our commitment to him says we see his value and want him to grow even more and get even better within our environment.

Man Utd sack Jose Mourinho: Red Devils part way with manager after poor start to the season


Jose Mourinho has been sacked by Manchester United following their disappointing start to the season.

The Red Devils currently sit sixth in the Premier League table but have already lost five times in 17 matches, leaving them 19 points behind leaders Liverpool and 11 off fourth-placed Chelsea in the fight for Champions League places.

That follows a summer transfer window in which Mourinho routinely complained at a lack of signings, with the Portuguese unable to persuade the club’s hierarchy to sign a new centre-back.

Mourinho has continued to drop hints that he remains unhappy at that failure to spend big, and he now leaves after two-and-a-half years in charge at Old Trafford, with his final match in charge Sunday’s 3-1 defeat to arch-rivals Liverpool.

“Manchester United announces that manager Jose Mourinho has left the club with immediate effect,” a statement read.

“The club would like to thank Jose for his work during his time at Manchester United and to wish him success in the future.
“A new caretaker manager will be appointed until the end of the current season, while the club conducts a thorough recruitment process for a new, full-time manager.”

 Lukaku’s first touch is bad, he loses the ball a lot – Mourinho 

Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has slated Romelu Lukaku’s first touch, following their 3-1 defeat to Liverpool on Sunday.

Mourinho, however, feels he had a good game, despite failing to register a single shot on target.

“I think he didn’t have a bad game at all.

“I think he fought his heart, he had good movement, he set up the goal.

“He was lively, he had good movement, he had good interactions.

“Sometimes his first touch is not the best and he loses lots of ball in the first touch, but today it did not happen.
