Mohamed Salah said he was delighted to play with Darwin Nunez at Liverpool. The Egyptian has shared his thoughts on the new signing after signing a new contract with the club.
Salah ended speculation over his future at Liverpool by signing a new contract on Friday. The new deal sees him stay at the club until 2025 on a reported salary of €350,000 a week, according to The Athletic.
Speaking to the club’s official website on Friday, Salah admitted he will miss Sadio Mane, who joined Bayern Munich last month. However, he said he was delighted to play with Nunez, who moved to Anfield from Benfica. He said:
“I’m so excited, I want to play with him. He’s had a good season and played well against us, both home and away. Also, Sadio is gone and I’m going to miss him. He’s had some great seasons with the club, so I wish him all the best. I also wish Darwin all the best that he scores a lot of goals for us.”
Salah sends a message to Liverpool fans
The Liverpool striker sent a message to the club’s fans after renewing his contract on Friday.
He thanked them for supporting the players and said they will do their best to win trophies in the upcoming season. He said:
“My message to them is, you know me and I give my all to the club. So my message is that the players in the team want to do their best next season to try and win all the trophies. As usual, you stay behind us and give us a big boost and i’m sure we’ll still win trophies [together].”
Speaking about the show at the end of last season, he added:
“It’s something incredible, you wouldn’t see it anywhere [else]. I think people appreciate what we did and what we were doing during the season. There were two big disappointments for us in the last week of the season, but they know we did our best to win those trophies, that’s why they were there. I want to thank them for this experience.”
Salah joined Liverpool from AS Roma in 2017 and has since become one of the best players in the world, winning numerous individual accolades while leading the club to domestic and continental glory.
