Mohamed Salah.. the story in two pictures

Salah on Friday extended his contract with Liverpool for the next three seasons, to end a controversy that has continued in recent months between continuing with Liverpool or leaving.

Salah signed his new contract with Liverpool after a lengthy period of negotiations between the two sides, which, according to reports, ended with the Egyptian international receiving a salary of £350,000 a week.

Speaking on Liverpool’s official website, Salah said: “I have a great feeling, I’m excited to win titles with the club, it’s a happy day for everyone

“I think the revamp took some time, but now it’s all done, so we just have to focus on what’s next.”

And the Egyptian king continued: “I think you can see that the team has always progressed in the last five or six years, last season we were close to winning four titles, but unfortunately we lost in the last week of the season two titles…

Salah continued: “I think we are in a good position to fight for everything, we also have new contracts, we just have to keep working hard and have a good vision, be positive and fight for everything again.”

“My message to all fans is that the players in this team want to give their best to win trophies next season, and as always you are behind us and you give us a great boost and I am confident that we will win trophies together again will win.”

Salah came from Roma to Liverpool in 2017 for €42 million, at the time the most expensive player in the English club’s history

Since then, he has played 254 games with the team in all competitions, scoring 156 goals and assisting 63 others

Salah was crowned with Liverpool in the English Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup, European Champions League, European Super Cup and Club World Cup.

Salah has won the Premier League top goalscorer 3 times, the first being in the 2017/18 season when he scored 32 goals, a record since the league was approved with the participation of 20 teams.

The second time was in the 2018-2019 season, with 22 goals, equaling Sadio Mane, his former team-mate at Liverpool, and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, then Arsenal striker.

The third time was in the 2021-2022 season, with 23 goals equaling Tottenham’s Son Heung-min

Salah finished second in the top goalscorer list in the 2020-2021 season, having scored 22 goals, just one behind award-winning Tottenham striker Harry Kane.

Salah is the second most awarded goalscorer in the English Premier League, just behind Harry Kane and former Newcastle striker Alan Shearer.

Salah is just one prize away from the most awarded French legend and former Arsenal striker Thierry Henry

Salah has twice won the Professional Players Association award, the most prestigious award in English football, the first was in 2018 and the second was this year

As for the award for the best player in the English Premier League, he won it only once in 2018.

As for the best player of the month award, it has won it four times before and is far from the most successful of former Manchester City strikers Sergio Aguero and Harry Kane with three awards.

Salah started his career with the Arab Contractors, from there he moved to Basel, Switzerland in 2012, and then to Chelsea in 2014.

Salah was loaned to Italy’s Fiorentina in 2015 and was loaned to his compatriot Roma after just one season

And the loan went to the Italian main team for one final transfer and he stayed with the team until 2017, landing in Merseyside and making his legend in Liverpool
