Mohamed Salah has said that he would love to remain at Liverpool for the rest of his career, but added that his future remains out of his hands.
The Egypt international, arguably in the form of his career for Jurgen Klopp, will see his current contract at Anfield expire in June 2023, and is yet to pen an extension.
But while the Reds continue to mull over a prospective package for the striker, Salah has now put the ball in their court by stating that cannot see himself playing against the club in the future.
“If you ask me, I would love to stay until the last day of my football career, but I can’t say much about that – it’s not in my hands,” the forward told Sky Sports News .
“It depends on what the club want, not on me. At the moment I can’t see myself ever playing against Liverpool. That would make me sad.
“It’s hard, I don’t want to talk about it, but it would make me really sad. At the moment I don’t see myself playing against Liverpool but let’s see what will happen in the future.”
Salah will look to once more rise to the occasion when he leads Liverpool’s attack against Manchester United in the Premier League on Sunday.
The Egypt star has scored 12 goals in 11 games so far this season, netting in all but one of his eight Premier League games in 2021-22.
