Despite the enormity surrounding the league fixture, Salah’s future has once again come up amid discussions over a new deal at Anfield.

The Egyptian superstar has been embroiled in a contract stand-off, with his current deal due to expire in the summer of 2023.

He was asked for an update about his contract negotiations, claiming there ‘are many things people don’t know about it’.

“I can’t be selfish now and be talking about my situation when we are in the most important period of the season.

“I have to talk about the team and focus on the team, that’s the most important thing right now.

“Hopefully we’re going to be more optimistic and then just see what’s going to happen.”

Pressed on whether he was confident he would pen a new deal at Liverpool, Salah replied: “I can’t say yes, I can’t say no. I’ve said many times before what I want.

But I can’t go deep into the contract now because it’s a sensitive situation. I can’t be talking about my contract, I focus on the team, that’s it.

“It doesn’t affect me, I’m very professional. I know what I’m doing so I’m not too bothered about it.

“I focus on the team and winning trophies and giving everything for the club.”

Salah is in his fifth season at Liverpool having enjoyed an extremely prolific spell.
