Jurgen Klopp has called for patience over negotiations for Mohamed Salah’s Liverpool contract.

Following Mohamed Salah’s criticism of Liverpool’s board for a lack of movement, Jurgen Klopp has stated that both he and Salah are ‘OK’ with the Salah’s forward contract negotiations.

The Liverpool star’s current contract expires in 18 months’ time and the Reds are keen to tie Salah down with a new deal without breaking their wage structure.

“We are talking. Extending a contract with a player like Mo is not a thing you do and you meet for a cup of tea in the afternoon and find an agreement. That’s completely normal,” Klopp said ahead of Liverpool’s Champions League game at AC Milan on Tuesday.

Mo is fine, I’m fine. I think what we all want is clear and things like this need time, that’s it.

Klopp was responding to Salah’s comments made in an interview with Egyptian TV this weekend when the Liverpool star forward stated “I said it several times, if the decision is up to me, I want to stay in Liverpool,”

“But the decision is in the hands of the management and they have to solve this issue.

“There is no problem but we have to reach an agreement for the contract. It’s up to them.

“Your financial value shows how much the club appreciates you and that they are ready to do anything for you to stay, but the decision itself is not based on those financial matters only.

“There are things like the ambition of the team and the coach and what he wants to do with the team and the players he wants.

“These are all important points when making the decision.”
