Liverpool coach Juergen Klopp said the new contract for Salah was a sign of the club's ambition.

"I know we can achieve a lot of things together [and] I'm looking forward to seeing you".

Salah who scooped multiple awards and scored a total of 44 goals in just 52 appearances for the Reds last season was linked with a possible move to Spanish giants Barcelona and Real Madrid.

Salah was named as both the PFA Players' Player of the Year and the Football Writers' Association's Footballer of the Year for his efforts in 2017-18.

The new contract "demonstrates two things very clearly - his belief in Liverpool and our belief in him", Klopp told the Liverpool website. "Last season was special with many special moments - but we want more".

Salah had to come off after half an hour against the Spanish giants in Kiev after suffering a shoulder injury.

Salah's contribution to the Egyptian national team can not be underestimated, but injury, early elimination and a controversial photograph with Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov made it a hard and frustrating World Cup for the talismanic figure.

He returned to Melwood on Monday for the first day of Liverpool's pre-season but Buvac, who stepped away from his role as Liverpool's assistant manager for personal reasons in April, was still absent.

What is your opinion about Salah signing a new deal at Liverpool? Liverpool will fervently hope it is the former.

It is a club protecting its asset and a player having his excellence acknowledged. "He recognises his teammates and this club helped him achieve individual success last season".

Certainly, if their trajectory continues on the same upward curve, they can't be discounted for the title next season, and as we head into the new campaign, the Premier League crown will be the first aim.
