Salah's contract extension pips Liverpool Tickets demand!

Mohamed Salah finally reaching an agreement with Liverpool was probably the best news every Liverpool ticket holder wanted to hear before the new season. 


It was a long time coming, and there was much speculation surrounding the Egyptian king and his future in a Red shirt. Finally, everything is put to bed - Salah is a Liverpool player until 2025 (and hopefully beyond). 


With several transfer rumours that got almost all who purchased Liverpool tickets for the upcoming season on the edge of their seats, Fenway Sports Group and Liverpool owners confirmed that Salah is here to stay. 


In an official statement by the club, Liverpool announced the long-term deal with the forward, as he looks to continue his form and what he does best. 


It was an all-important move for the club, with the speculation finally ending and the club and Jurgen Klopp understanding their priorities. This announcement came after growing concerns among the supporters, with a heightened worry after the loss of Sadio Mane to Bayern Munich in June. 


To lose one of the club's leading forwards was a big blow, but to lose both would have left the Anfield club in turmoil. 


The new Salah deal 


In 2017, one of the first signings in the Klopp era was the arrival of Salah from AS Roma. He was sensational in the first season, netting on 44 occasions. 32 out of the 44 came in the Premier League as he set the Premier League record for the most goals scored in a single season. 


Since then, he has been unstoppable and was the driving force in Liverpool's road back to supremacy. 


The previous contract was expected to run out in June 2023, and his new terms ensure that he has a fair remuneration for his efforts at the club. The newly signed contract that keeps him focused with Liverpool will see him make an excess of 350,000 a week and makes him the highest-paid player in the club's history. 


Earlier, Salah was capped at $200,000 a week, and with this signing, he is expected to make over 400,000 a week with the added incentives. 


Now a three-time Golden Boot winner, he is currently the fourth highest earning player in the league behind Cristiano Ronaldo, Kevin De Bruyne, and David De Gea. 


As Salah took to social media to announce his extension, it felt like everything was falling into place again for the side.


"I feel great and excited to win trophies…."


"It is a happy day for everyone," Salah added. 


The deal was finalised while the Egyptian was on holiday, speaking volumes of the deal's importance. Sporting director for Liverpool, Julian Ward, jetted to meet Salah with the confirmation from FSG president Mike Gordon. 


The Team is Excited to Have Salah - Fabinho 


Since his arrival at the club, Liverpool hasn't stooped down in their playing style. Much of the credit goes to Jurgen Klopp, but the team had a great combination with Mane and Salah.


Speaking about his teammate, Fabinho adds that his teammate is happier, and after Sadio left, the contract agreement was crucial. 


"That was really important, especially after losing Sadio," Fabinho added. 


Speaking to The Athletic's James Pearce, Fabinho wasn't too shy to state that Salah was undoubtedly the side's best player in the last few years. 


"He's (Salah) been maybe the best player in this team, and he's shown how important he is…." 


And Fabinho isn't wrong - the numbers speak for themselves. 


Since he moved borders, Salah has scored 156 goals for the side in the 254. He also won six trophies with the recent FA Cup and the EFL League club in the previous season. Salah was pivotal in ensuring that Liverpool won their first Premier League title in the 2020-21 season after nearly two decades. 


In the earlier season, Liverpool won the Champions League defeating Tottenham Hotspur in the final. 


The Egyptian is in 9th place in the all-time goalscorers list for Liverpool in such a short time and provided he replicates his 31-goal run from last season, he will be overtraining Liverpool legends Kenny Dalglish, Robbie Fowler, and Steven Gerrard to fifth. 


Re-signing Salah might be Liverpool's biggest signing this season, but there will be a search for a replacement for his strike partner Sadio Mane to continue the success story. 


Liverpool missed out on a possible back-to-back league title in the concluded season - a season that went down to the wire. City came out on top on the final day, anchoring a memorable comeback against Aston Villa despite the Salah heroics to win the title. 


Still, ambition is strong with the Reds for the upcoming season. 


Liverpool will commence their new season run with the re-promoted Fulham in August. It will be the 4th season that the team will start a new season with a newcomer. Crystal will follow up the opening fixture, and the decisive game in the first few games would be the one against Manchester United at Old Trafford on the 20th of August. 


Last time around, when Liverpool went to Old Trafford, they came back with a 5-0 win, with Salah scoring a hat-trick. 


September will be a challenge with trips to Everton and Chelsea, which will follow crucial clashes against Arsenal and Manchester City. 


The final game before club action halts for the FIFA World Cup 2022 will be against Southampton at home. 


The return fixture after the world cup is Aston Villa, expected to be held on Boxing Day. 


The Egyptian failed to make it to the FIFA World Cup this year with his national side after losing the AFCON title to Senegal, which Sadio Mane led. 


Hype is on 


After a long hiatus of disappointment and regret, Liverpool is again season favourites for a 5th successive season. In the last five seasons, they've almost won the league title on two occasions but couldn't overthrow City. 


The Salah signing and Liverpool's playing level have also amplified the demand for Liverpool tickets. Tickets for the upcoming season were already in demand, and the chances are that you've already passed the deadline.


With Liverpool tickets available for four tournaments - the Premier League, the FA Cup, the EFL Cup, and the UEFA Champions League- you might still have a chance at securing a few. 


But, the official sources can disappoint you and end your hunt for tickets. Instead, an ideal option would be to search for available options on a certified reseller website. The reseller website would consist of verified sellers that list authentic Liverpool tickets for anyone to purchase. 


Do note that all tickets undergo a strict verification process to ensure that every fan can start making plans for their match days.
