Salah to stay but Mane coy on Liverpool future

Mohamed Salah has confirmed he will be staying at Liverpool next season, but Sadio Mane refused to confirm his own future.

Salah and Mane are both set to enter the final year of their contracts this summer and each have so far failed to agree terms on new deals.

 

Salah has enjoyed a brilliant individual season and was named as the FWA Footballer of the Year after leading the Premier League for goals and assists in 2021/22, winning a third Golden Boot.

The Egyptian international was asked on his future ahead of this weekend’s Champions League final with Real Madrid and said he would be remaining at Anfield next season.

“In my mind, I don’t focus on the contract,” Salah told a pre-match press conference. “I don’t want to be selfish at all. I said two months ago it’s about the team. It’s an important week for us.

“I’m just focused on the team and winning the Champions League again. I want to see Hendo [Jordan Henderson] with the trophy in the hands and hopefully he gives it to me.

“I don’t want to talk about the contract now, I’m staying next season for sure, that’s clear.”

Mane has also been integral to Liverpool’s season and has scored 23 goals in all competitions for the Reds.

The Senegal international has been linked with a potential move to Bayern Munich and said he would make an announcement on his future after the Champions League final.

“For sure it will be special to win it, and make it seven (European Cup wins for the club),” he told Sky Sports.

“And this question (my future) I will answer after the Champions League. Stay or not – I’ll answer after the Champions League.”
