Jurgen Klopp addresses Mohamed Salah’s commitment to Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp declared Mohamed Salah is "working his socks off" to fire Liverpool to Champions League qualification as he played down recent transfer speculation surrounding the Egyptian.

Salah is comfortably the Reds' top goalscorer this season and netted in the Premier League for the 22nd time in Sunday's dramatic victory over West Brom.

However, there have been murmurs that the 28-year-old fancies a new challenge ever since his eye-opening interview with Spanish outlet AS last December.

Paris Saint-Germain are believed to be interested in Salah and would likely provide him with a steady stream of silverware as he enters the prime years of his career.

But Klopp has shot down claims that Salah is anything but 100 per cent focused on the job at hand with Liverpool.

"It sounds like you’re surprised by his reaction at West Brom. I’m not – I could see in his face, his determination," said the German ahead of Liverpool's trip to Burnley on Wednesday.

"I know how much Mo is committed to this club, I don’t need a goal celebration to see it.

"He is working his socks off here. He is in a really good moment."

Klopp also reserved special praise for Thiago, who has been in an excellent vein of form after a challenging start to life at Anfield.

The Reds boss said: "Thiago is world class but he came from a pandemic, having had to play for Bayern in the Champions League final.

"He only had a little break when he came here, got injured and returned to a team later on. He looks more settled and better now, that’s clear."

Klopp also fired a startling warning over the Spain midfielder's ability to Liverpool's rivals, adding: "Thiago is not even halfway there."
