The Egyptian had entered the final 12 months of his previous terms but after months of negotiations with the club he committed his future to Anfield with a massive new contract that has seen him become the best paid player in Liverpool’s history.
There had been indications that he would run his contract down and move for free next summer but the 30-year-old eased fans’ – and Jurgen Klopp’s – worries on Friday.
However, while the Reds are celebrating their star’s new deal, former Manchester United defender Neville believes Salah is the one who has won the negotiations.
Taking to social medial, the Sky Sports pundit wrote: ‘Salah has played them hasn’t he.’
Neville had previously predicted the Golden Boot winner would leave Merseyside for one of three European sides.
‘I don’t think he will stay at Liverpool for the rest of his career,’ the player-turned-pundit said on Sky Sports’ Overlap fans’ forum back in October 2021.
‘I know it’s not great at the moment at Barcelona and Madrid but Salah is similar to those I’ve just mentioned, I think he has to have that on his CV at the end of his career.
‘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 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.’
