Mohamed Salah has quietly hinted at what is coming at Liverpool next season

If there were any lingering questions about Mohmed Salah’s commitment to Liverpool after penning the most lucrative contract in the club’s history last summer, then they were emphatically answered over the course of the 2022/23 campaign.

In his sixth season at Anfield, the Egyptian, as he has done since his arrival from AS Roma in 2017, was a rare source of hope for Kopities in a campaign that ended with Liverpool’s worst Premier League finish since 2016.

Fresh from his long-standing contract stand-off, which became a subplot to the Reds’ pursuit of Premier League and Champions League glory in 2022, Salah low-key enjoyed one of his most devastating campaigns as he tallied another 30-goal season at Anfield.

Any long-standing effects of the Champions League defeat in Paris seemed to be forgotten as Salah delivered an early statement of intent against Manchester City in late July as he provided a goal and an assist to help Liverpool end their 16-year wait for a Community Shield with victory at the King Power Stadium.

As events in L4 unravelled in the following months, however, it became clear that the forward and his team-mates had in fact produced the first of many false dawns as their Premier League campaign began with just four wins from their first 10 outings. And while it soon became apparent that there were a whole host of underlying issues for Jurgen Klopp to address, chiefly in midfield, the departure of Sadio Mane to Bayern Munich saw the side enter a period of transition as Luis Diaz and Darwin Nunez begin their first full campaigns on Merseyside.

During a worrisome first half of the campaign, as the Reds suffered defeats to Manchester United, Arsenal, Nottingham Forest and Leeds United, Salah’s measly return of six goals in 17 league games had him and his team-mates looking from the outside in when it came to Arsenal and Man City’s fight for the Premier League title.
