Earlier this month, former Manchester United player-turned-pundit Gary Neville shared an update on Mohamed Salah's future. Judging by the player's reply in an interview, Neville's sources did not come up with the right type of information.
The former Valencia coach revealed on Sky Sports that Salah was interested in a move away from Anfield, especially since he did not have the best relationship with Jürgen Klopp. Today, in an interview with CNN, Salah discussed his alleged desire to leave, which he rubbished with a concrete statement.
"I'm happy at Liverpool. I'm happy in the city, I love the fans and they love me. I'm happy at the club," Salah said.
The Egyptian footballer also referred to his recent failure to win the African Cup of Nations on home soil. The former Roma man admitted that the atmosphere surrounding the team had a huge influence in the outcome of the tournament, especially since the team's peace was disrupted constantly.
"When I tried to go down from the room, there were like 200 people there. And the Egyptian FA asked: 'Why are you complaining'? I complain because I'm a human being. I want to be with the players. I want to sit down and enjoy my life. We are a team, we love each other, as players we want to play something," Salah said.
"When I'm trying to speak out, I'm saying it for me and on behalf of the players, because some of them ask me to do so. But for them (the EFA), it was just a competition,"Salah added.
So, leaving his retirement from the Egyptian side up in the air, Salah was adamant on one thing: he is not leaving Liverpool anytime soon. In fact, the club is already working on a contract extension for the footballer, according to the Mirror.
