Jurgen Klopp has dismissed media speculations that Mohamed Salah is unhappy at Liverpool, insisting that the Egyptian international is in a “good moment” at the club.
Salah told Madrid-based newspaper AS in an interview last weekend that he admired Real Madrid and Barcelona, fuelling talk that he wants to leave Liverpool.
“We never speak (about contracts),” said Klopp ahead of Liverpool’s visit to struggling West Bromwich Albion on Sunday.
“Mo is in a good mood and moment, and that is most important.
“You would have seen him laughing a lot (today, in training). The rest is nice for you to write but internally, nothing really (to say).”
Salah was left on the bench for last weekend’s 7-0 thrashing of Crystal Palace, but still scored two goals when he came on to help the Premier League leaders maintain their fine form.
League champions Liverpool are unbeaten in 10 league games while conceding just eight goals since losing 7-2 at Aston Villa in October – winning three of the last four.
They are the first side to spend three straight Christmases leading the English top-flight since they also achieved the feat between 1978 and 1980, but Klopp is not getting carried away.
Klopp also confirmed that close-season signing Thiago Alcantara is not ready to return against West Brom after missing the last nine games with a knee injury.
“Thiago made the first steps back towards team training,” he added. “But not full yet. After a long time, we cannot rush it.”
