Mohamed Salah rules out Liverpool exit

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has restated that he is “very happy” at the club and is just at the start of his Anfield career, in the midst of ongoing links with a move to Real Madrid.

Salah has lit up the Premier League in his maiden campaign on Merseyside, scoring 31 times to lead the scoring charts heading into the final round of fixtures.

The Egypt international has 42 goals to his name in all competitions and has seen his form rewarded with a clean sweep of individual awards, bagging both the Football Writers' ­Association Footballer of the Year and Professional Footballers' Association Player of the Year gongs.

There have been rumors that he is high on Madrid's transfer wishlist, but now Salah has stressed that he does not intend to quit Liverpool after just one season.

“I'm very happy here and everything is fine. I have got ambitions for the future, with ­Liverpool.

“We had a great season and now we are in the Champions League final, and everyone is excited. It is just the start. This is my first year here and it is the same for some other players. We have had an unbelievable year. It is just the beginning.

“I am very happy to win these awards. I had a good season but, without the help of my teammates, it would have been very difficult. We all try to help each other. We all try to give more and we all try to push each other.

“We are a team who fight for each other every day. I work hard to help my team. Now I want to finish the season in a good way,” he said when picking up his FWA trophy on Thursday night.

The former Roma ace has failed to score in any of his last three games, stretching back to the 5-2 win over Roma in the Champions League on April 24.
