Jurgen Klopp has emphasized patience in terms of Mohamed Salah’s situation at Liverpool, even though the attacker is still to ink a contract extension with the club.

Salah’s current agreement at Anfield ends in June 2023, and he has stated previously that he wants to proceed at the club but that his destiny “is not in my hands.”

“Mo expects this club to be ambitious. We cannot do much more. It is Mo’s decision.
It is all fine from my point of view. Nothing happened further, no signing or rejection. We just have to wait, there’s no rush.” as reported by Fabrizio Romano.

Having 27 goals in all comps this season, the Egypt international has arguably been one of the world’s finest players this season, and Klopp has indicated that he is unconcerned about his contract status. He’s also on route to capture the Premier League Golden Boot current season, with a seven-goal margin over second-placed Diogo Jota. The future of the 29-year-old at Anfield is in significant doubt. His Liverpool contract expires towards the end of the next season. So far, no hints have surfaced that the attacker is closer to extending his contract.

Liverpool travels to Brighton on Saturday ahead of playing Arsenal in midweek as they attempt to reduce the margin on Premier League toppers Manchester City. Liverpool advanced to the Champions League quarterfinals off Tuesday, and Klopp remarked that his club is seeking to surpass Pep Guardiola’s side.

Klopp also conveyed his condolences to Chelsea staff after the club’s owner, Roman Abramovich, was sanctioned by the United Kingdom government for his relations with Russian President Vladimir Putin. For the moment now, Salah’s priority will be on returning to Anfield with a victory on Saturday.

The Reds are six points below Premier League toppers Manchester City and therefore are looking to close the gap.
