Jurgen Klopp says he knows Mohamed Salah wants to stay at Liverpool, insisting contract negotiations with the Egyptian are in a good place.
Salah said in an interview published by GQ this week that he is “not asking for crazy stuff” in contract talks, as he reiterated that it is up to Liverpool to decide his future.
The forward, whose contract at Anfield runs out in the summer of 2023, has stated he wants to stay at Liverpool but the two parties are yet to come to an agreement over a new deal.
“Nowadays it’s dangerous with these interviews when you don’t speak to the player himself,” Klopp said ahead of Thursday’s Carabao Cup visit of Arsenal, live on Sky Sports.
“I know Mo wants to stay, we want Mo to stay. These things take time, but I think all of it is in a good place. I’m very positive about it. The fans are not as nervous as you (the media) are.
“They know the club pretty long, they know the people dealing with the different things here pretty long, so I think it is enough reason to be positive.
“But as long as it is not done, we can’t say anything about it. Good conversations, that’s what I can say.
