Liverpool striker Salah delighted with new deal; talks up Nunez partnership

Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah is delighted signing his new contract.

The Reds ace has penned a deal to 2025.

He told the club's website: "I feel great and [I am] excited to win trophies with the club. It's a happy day for everyone.

"It takes a little bit of time, I think, to renew, but now everything is done so we just need to focus on what's next.

"I think everybody now, I can say in the last 10 days, has started to reach their peak after 30 or something. I am so excited for the next [few] years."

Asked if he's confident the team can win trophies next season, Salah was adamant.

"Yeah, I think you can see in the last five or six years the team was always going [upwards]. Last season we were close to winning four, but unfortunately in the last week of the season we lost two trophies. I think we are in a good position to fight for everything.

"We have new signings as well. We just need to keep working hard, have a good vision, be positive and go for everything again.

"I am so excited, I want to play with him [Darwin Nunez]. He had a good season and played good against us, home and away. Also, Sadio has left and I am going to miss him. He had great seasons with the club, so I wish him all the best. I wish Darwin all the best too to score many goals for us."

Salah also had a message for fans.

"My message to them is, you know me and I give everything to the club. So, my message is the players in the team want to give our best next season to try to win all the trophies. As usual, you stay behind us and give us a big push and I am sure we are going to win trophies again [together]. "
