Lovren backs Salah to remain at Liverpool well into his 30’s

Dejan Lovren has backed Mohamed Salah to stay at Liverpool for the best years of his career and says the forward remains committed to the club.

Salah has established himself as one of the best players in world football since moving to Merseyside from Roma three-and-a-half years ago, scoring 116 goals in just 184 appearances and winning the Champions League and Premier League.

The Egyptian international is currently the leading scorer in the Premier League once more and is in pursuit of a third Golden Boot in just four seasons, with his performances having admiring glances from across the continent.

Real Madrid and Barcelona have previously been linked with a move for the 28-year-old, whilst Bayern Munich chief Karl-Heinz Rummenigge recently praised the star and admitted it would be an ‘honour’ to sign Salah.

Lovren, who played alongside Salah at Liverpool before moving to Zenit St Petersburg last summer, has dismissed the suggestion the forward could look to leave Anfield and believes the Egyptian could stay until the latter stages of his career.

“Yes, of course [he’s committed],” Lovren told talkSPORT.

“He’s not just for Liverpool, he’s for all the fans around and the supporters and for himself.

“I’m still in communication with Mo Salah. We are still the best buddies, even outside football, and we talk about everything.

“Individually, when you look at the amount of goals he’s scored, he’s doing amazingly at the moment.

“Mo is in the best age of his football career at 28. Maybe he looks a bit older but he’s in the peak of his form so why not stay another four, five, six years?”
