Jamie Carragher questions Jurgen Klopp over new Liverpool contract for Mo Salah

Mo Salah has yet to sign a new contract with Liverpool despite his obvious importance to the team, and former defender Jamie Carragher has questioned Jurgen Klopp’s involvement in the renewal.

The Reds are thought to be keen on tying Salah down to fresh terms. His current deal expires in 2023. The Egyptian is currently in fine form, and scored again in midweek as the Reds romped to Champions League success.

However, the delay and speed in which a deal for Salah is being done is becoming a concern for some. And Carragher, writing in his column for The Telegraph today, is wondering why Klopp isn’t involved.

“Klopp vowed captain Jordan Henderson’s deal would “get sorted” after a brief stalemate and it immediately was, yet says he is ‘not involved’ with Salah’s negotiations,” Carragher writes.

“That seems odd. If there is a sound reason for not resolving the Salah contract situation with the same urgency, it is yet to be satisfactorily explained.”

Salah hit 100 Premier League goals last week. In doing so, he became the quickest to achieve such a feat for Liverpool.

As Carragher touches on in his own words, Salah is just as important if not more important than the likes of Van Dijk and Alisson. His goals, assists, and pressing are brilliant for this Liverpool side.

Klopp also loves him. The German branded Salah ‘extraordinary’ and a ‘role model’ just this year. It goes without saying, then, that the Reds boss values the former Chelsea man highly.

The Reds need to get this right. Yes, there is time. But that time can soon erode and if Salah did leave because of hesitancy, Liverpool fans would rightly be fuming.
