Jurgen Klopp reacts to Mohamed Salah Liverpool exit rumours

Jurgen Klopp insists he is ‘not worried’ about Mohamed Salah as the media continues to press the Liverpool boss about Saudi links.

It’s only been half a month since the transfer window shut and more than a week since the Saudis closed shop for business. The biggest story from the Middle East and in the Premier League around deadline day was the future of Mohamed Salah.

The Liverpool star was the subject of massive interest from Al Ittihad, with the Merseysiders even rejecting a nine-figure fee for their Egyptian forward. The Saudis were then expected to push with another mammoth bid, which could have surpassed the £200 million mark with ease, but the Reds stood firm on their stance.

They might have refused to sell, knowing well the Saudis could return for Salah in the future, either in January or next summer. Even then, the Egyptian will retain most of the valuation that Al Ittihad deemed worth spending over £150 million. Hence, Liverpool seems relaxed about not accepting such sums of money.

Jurgen Klopp, on the other hand, has been bombarded with questions about Salah’s future. Not a single press conference has gone by without reporters asking the German about the Egyptian’s future and how he plans on dealing with it.

This time around, ahead of the game with Wolves, the media continued to press Klopp with questions regarding Salah’s future. The Liverpool boss was visibly in a fiery mood with some of the questions thrown at him. He even gave a somewhat rough answer to a journalist who asked about South American players and their ‘jet lag’ ahead of Saturday’s fixtures.

Then another journalist asked Klopp about Salah’s future amid the constant Saudi links. From his quotes that appeared on 90 Min, Klopp seemed infuriated with the questioning and insisted he’s ‘not worried’ about the Liverpool star and asked the reporter to at least ‘wait until December’.

Klopp said, “You are kidding me, yeah? You can’t wait until December to ask this question?”

“I’m not worried about [it] and wasn’t until you opened the wound again. I’m not worried.”

Many in the media had even suggested Liverpool sell Salah and replace him with someone like Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka. While a sale of the Liverpool star may remain a possibility in the future, the Reds did not think it was viable during the summer.

Salah has played a crucial role in Liverpool’s opening four games of the season, and especially in the last two. Klopp will want to quickly forget about these questions about Salah and focus on the Wolves game. Liverpool sit in third spot, two points behind leader Manchester City, as they will aim to go top after the first game on Saturday.
