Mohamed Salah promises ‘sensitive’ contract talks will not hurt title challenge

By PA Sport Staff

Mohamed Salah has described his ongoing contract talks as a “sensitive situation” but says they will not detract from his bid to help Liverpool reclaim the Premier League crown.

The Egypt star has 16 months remaining on his current deal and negotiations are ongoing as he reportedly holds out for a deal that would make him the top-flight’s top earner.

But ahead of Sunday’s clash with rivals Manchester City which could go a long way to deciding this season’s champions, Salah sought to play down the potential distraction.

Salah told Sky Sports News: “There are many things that people don’t know about it – I can’t be selfish and talk about my situation (because) we are in the most important situation that is coming for the team.

“I’ve said many times what I want but I can’t really go deep into the contract now because it is a sensitive situation.

“I can’t go in the news and talk about the contract now, I am just focused on the team. That is the most important thing for me, (being) focused to win trophies and I’m just giving everything for the club.”
