The footballing is world is ‘witnessing greatness’ from Mohamed Salah, according to a tweet from the official Liverpool account.
Attached to the tweet was a graphic of the Reds forward celebrating with a selection of laudatory tweets in the background.
Salah scored an ‘absolutely exceptional’ individual goal in Sunday’s 2-2 draw with title rivals Manchester City at Anfield.
Salah’s performances amplify contract questions
The Egyptian has started the campaign in devastating form with nine goals in as many games.
But there’s still uncertainty over his future as he gradually ticks nearer to the end of his contract in June 2023.
Trent Alexander-Arnold, Andrew Robertson, Fabinho, Alisson Becker, Virgil van Dijk and Jordan Henderson all penned extensions during the summer, but Salah has yet to do so (via Goal).
According to a recent piece from The Athletic, the 29-year-old’s preference is to stay at Anfield but up to this point Liverpool ‘have been reluctant to pay what he feels he is worth’ because it would mean breaking their wage structure.
Here’s how supporters reacted to the club’s tweet.
These Liverpool fans wait for Salah to put pen to paper
“This better be a contract announcement”
“We’ll crowdfund his contract”
“I can see my tweet there, so can you please renew Mo’s contract now”
“all about the timing now…”
“this is insane prop, please top it off with a contract”
“You’re trolling us at this point”
