Jurgen Klopp insists Mo Salah will not leave Liverpool as Barcelona and Real Madrid continue transfer chase for Reds ace

LIVERPOOL manager Jurgen Klopp has insisted Mo Salah will not be leaving the club any time soon.

The 28-year-old continues to be linked with moves to Barcelona and Real Madrid, among others.

Speaking ahead of Liverpool's trip to Sheffield United, Klopp said: “It is not often that I have to praise my own players, which of course I always like to do.

"But in Mo's case the numbers just speak for themselves.

"Mo is not only a goalscorer. He has developed football-wise as well – and is a very, very important player for us.

"And hopefully he will be that for a very long time, of course."

Although Liverpool have struggled recently, losing four consecutive Premier League games, Salah has been in fine form.

The Egypt international is the Premier League's leading scorer with 17, two ahead of Manchester United's Bruno Fernandes.
