Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has stated that his new contract will not be “decisive” in determining whether Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane’s contracts will be extended.
Klopp’s contract was extended by two years until 2026 on Thursday, while Salah and Mane’s contracts expire next summer.
When asked about the implications for Salah and Mane’s future, Klopp stated: “What it means to the boys is a question for them to answer. But everything is fine. My friendship with both is fantastic.”
Jurgen Klopp said: “In life, there are more things to think about than who the manager is, but knowing who the manager and coaching staff are is an important thing.
“If it is a positive sign for the boys, then great, but I don’t think this will be the one decisive thing for whatever decision they have to make. It’s their own life.
“We just wanted to guarantee that everyone who wants to be here knows what he can expect.”
Mohamed Salah has stated that he wants to stay at Liverpool and recently stated that “it’s not all about the money.”
The contracts of forward Roberto Firmino and midfielder Naby Keita will also expire next summer.
Liverpool travels to Newcastle on Saturday, trailing Premier League leaders Manchester City by one point with five games remaining.
