Jurgen Klopp insists everything is “fine” where Mohamed Salah is concerned after the forward opened the door to Real Madrid and Barcelona.
Salah has long been linked with a move to La Liga and did little to suggest he’ll remain at Liverpool for the rest of his career when recently quizzed about his future.
“Who knows what will happen,” Salah told Spanish publication AS. “But right now I am focused on winning the Premier League and the Champions League with Liverpool again.”

“Of course I want to break records here and, I repeat, all the club records, but everything is in the hands of the club.”
Salah was named on the bench on Saturday for Liverpool’s Premier League clash with Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.
But the Egyptian came on to net twice in the 7-0 victory.
After the game Klopp was asked why Salah was dropped to the bench and to give his opinion on the striker’s comments in the AS interview.
The Liverpool manager said: “First time for a while we had opportunity [to change].
“Mo played last 4 games in an intense period. “Bringing him for the last half was a good idea, so that is it. “I have nothing to say [about the AS interview]. All fine from my side.”
