Will Salah stay at Liverpool?



Jurgen Klopp says Liverpool is actively trying to extending Mohamed Salah’s contract.

Salah is in the final two years of his current contract, which has cast a shadow of uncertainty over his future. 

The 29-year-old signed a new deal just the year after he arrived at the club in 2017. Salah’s original contract offered a £6.2 million salary per year.

After his miraculous first season, in which the Egyptian bagged 44 goals and 16 assists in 52 appearances for the Reds, Salah was rewarded with a new contract that pushed his annual salary to £10.4 million.

That means he currently makes £200,000 every week before taxes.

Bumper contract might be offered

Reports suggest that the Liverpool hierarchy has greenlit a contract proposal that will make Salah the most paid player in the club’s history.

After signing the new contract, he will stay at Merseyside till 2025 and will make £250,000 per week. 

The club has grown increasingly confident over the past few months that it would be able to keep hold of its talismanic forward.

The financial problems of Real Madrid and Barcelona, Salah’s potential suitors, have strengthened Liverpool’s faith.

The 2019/20 Premier League champions weren’t so active in the summer transfer window this season.

But, they have done a remarkable job in securing the future of their current players.

Alisson Becker, Virgil van Dijk, Fabinho, and Trent Alexander-Arnold have committed their long-term future at Liverpool. The club hopes, Salah will be the next to do so.

Liverpool has been trying to renew Salah’s contract, but the Egypt international’s representatives didn’t show much eagerness to come to the discussion table.

There were rumors that Salah would listen to offers if either one of the El Clasico giants come knocking on his door. 

That said, there are plenty of reasons for Liverpool to be optimistic about Salah’s future.

The team is playing Champions League football, Klopp seems set to stay, and more importantly, Real Madrid and Barcelona are struggling to balance their books.

According to reports, Salah will sign the new deal soon.

Salah in great form

Salah helped Liverpool kick-off the new season in style as he contributed a goal and two assists in Liverpool’s 3-0 victory over Norwich at Carrow Road.

After the match, Salah took his Liverpool goal tally to 126 in only 204 appearances. 

Only eleven players have scored more goals for Liverpool than Salah in the history of the club.

He is only four goals shy of Sam Raybould, who sits 10th on the list.

So, we would see Salah climbing further up the list pretty soon. 

Liverpool signed Salah for £34 million from Roma.

Since his arrival, the Liverpool number 11 has defied all expectations. He scored 32 goals in his first Premier League season, no other player has scored as many goals in the 20-team Premier League format.

For his incredible form, he was named the Premier League Player of the Season.

He was instrumental in Liverpool’s Champion’s League triumph in 2019 and the historic Premier League win in the season that followed.

Salah is central to Liverpool’s future ambitions. So, the club desperately wants to keep him beyond the expiration date of his current contract.

As things stand, Liverpool fans might expect good news in the coming weeks.

WATCH: Cristiano Ronaldo storms off pitch after throwing his runner’s-up medal into stands




Cristiano Ronaldo and his AL-Nassr side lost the Riyadh Cup to AL Hilal on Saturday. It was a clinical performance from the Al-Hilal side as they won the match 2-0. It was a frustrating night for the Portugal legend as he was heckled by the fans in the crowd.

The cameras panned to Cristiano Ronaldo who was swarmed by his teammates. There were chants cheering on Lionel Messi from the stands. Already peeved after losing the game, Ronaldo lost his cool and threw his medal at the fans.

Watch the video here:

During the game, Ronaldo was seen showing disgraceful actions towards the AL-Hilal fans. A scarf which was thrown his way saw the Portugal superstar rub it in the most inappropriate area. The 39-year-old earned the ire of the fans after this incident came to light.

AL-Hilal down AL-Nassr to win Riyadh Cup 2024 –

The 2024 Riyadh Cup final saw some amazing football being played. Cristiano Ronaldo was all smiles as WWE Superstar The Undertaker came out to place the trophy. Once the action began it was an end-to-end encounter as both teams went hard at goal.

Serbian star Sergej-Milinkovic Savic opened the scoring in the 17th minute of the game. It was two-nil 13 minutes later as Salem Aldaswari scored an amazing goal. That was the end of the contest despite an hour left in the game to be played.

There was no way back for the Al Nassr side as they looked clueless in front of goal. Not many chances were created by Ronaldo and his team. Al Hilal’s defense held their own against a rampaging Al Nassr side in the last few minutes.

There was pandemonium in the stands as the final whistle was sounded and the Al Hilal fans celebrated. There was a chorus of Messi chants which visibly irked Ronaldo at the end of the game.

Ever since his move from Manchester United in late 2022, Cristiano Ronaldo has changed Saudi Football. The likes of Karim Benzema and N Golo Kante are currently playing in the Saudi Pro League. AL Hilal themselves signed noted Brazilian sensation Neymar who sic out injured. With the veteran star in the twilight of his career, this kind of behaviour is least expected from Cristiano Ronaldo.

Sandeep Lamichhane convicted of molestation, jailed for eight years



Nepal leg-spinner Sandeep Lamichhane has been convicted of raping a 17-year-old in 2022. During the case, he kept playing for the team, notably during the Asia Cup 2023 and ODI World Cup qualifier in June last year. After the case was filed, he was playing for eventual winners, Jamaica Tallawahs. The leg-spinner was released from the team and was taken into custody.

“I know I am facing a difficult time of conspiracy and wrongful allegation and the ramification of its effect is something unimaginable. I am sure there must be some mechanism of compensating to the accused who proven to be innocent in our legal system,” he wrote. “I will soon seek legal support against wrongful prosecution and allegation made against me and I am sure I will get the justice and will return to the cricket ground soon to make the name and fame of my beloved country and I pray for speedy trial.”

After landing home, the former Delhi Capitals player claimed that the allegations made against him were baseless.

“All these things affected me mentally on one hand and on the other hand, I had to go through illness, and due to mental stress and ill health I kept myself in isolation. I have been mentally and physically affected by the portrayal and I have reached a state of imbalance and I have been bringing myself back to a normal state under the advice of doctors. My health is gradually improving, and I am planning to return to Nepal as soon as possible to defend against the false complaint against me,” the leggie wrote on Facebook in September 2022.

Talking about the current status, the bench also slapped him with a fine of Rs 300,000 (USD 2255 approx) and ordered him to pay Rs 200,000 (USD 1500 approx) in compensation to the victim. Lamichhane’s lawyer, Saroj Ghimire, told AFP that he “will appeal the decision in a higher court.”

Gambhir then smilingly went on to add:

“Ye aap baar baar dikhana, mujhe sab kuch yaad rehta hai. Ladai meri sirf on the field hai (Please show this clip again and again, I remember everything. My fight is only on the field)”

I want Virat Kohli to bat with the same intent he is known for: Gautam Gambhir

In another conversation. Gambhir said that Kohli must bat the same way against South Africa in the two-match Test series the way he does. Notably, the latter won’t play the practice game as he has come back to India for personal reasons. However, the right-hander will be available for the series.

“It will be in Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma’s minds that Shreyas Iyer, who is on his first tour, will be batting after Virat Kohli, and KL Rahul, if he plays, will be playing as a wicketkeeper for the first time. However, I want Virat Kohli to bat with the same intent he is known for.”
