Mohamed Salah has claimed he is unwilling to discuss his contract dispute with Liverpool at the moment owing to the Reds’ crucial run-in.

“I can’t say yes, I can’t say no. I’ve said a million times before about what I want, but I can’t go deep into the contract now – I can’t go into the news about my contract now, because the team needs to win,” Salah said.

“There is not much I can say, honestly what can I say? There are many things people don’t know about it. I can’t be selfish. We are in the most important period for the team. So I just have to talk about the team, focus on what’s important for the team. Hopefully, we are going to be more optimistic and see what will happen [with the contract].

”It [speculation] doesn’t affect me at all. I know my job very well, I know what I am doing, and I know the situation the club is in, so I am not bothered about that. I am just focusing on the team, and giving everything I have for the club.”

With a win over Manchester City on Sunday, Jurgen Klopp’s team may move one step closer to an unprecedented quadruple, and a victory would move Liverpool to the top of the Premier League standings.

They then take on Benfica in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final on Wednesday before facing City in the FA Cup semi-finals at Wembley.
