"Frightening" - Pundit makes major Mo Salah claim Liverpool fans will love

All-time Premier League top goal scorer Alan Shearer has backed Liverpool's Mohamed Salah to keep improving following the signing of his new long-term deal

The Egyptian's contract will see him earn £350,000-a-week, making him one of the highest earners in Premier League history.

There was heavy speculation this summer that the forward was looking for a way out of Liverpool, but the 30-year-old will now stay at the club until 2025.

Shearer believes that the new deal will lift a weight off his shoulders. Speaking to the BBC, the pundit stated:

“A big reason for that is Mohamed Salah signing a new contract, which is absolutely huge for them and will be a big weight off his mind too,”

“We might even see Salah playing better now, which is a frightening prospect for Premier League defences.”

The 30-year-old has spent 5 years at Anfield and in that time he's scored an impressive 157 goals in 255 games.

The Egyptian has been ever present in Liverpool’s recent successes and was a key part of their Premier League and Champions League winning campaigns.

Salah partner in crime, Sadio Mane, has recently departed the club for Bayern Munich, but new signing Darwin Nunez will look to fill that gap in Liverpool's new look front line.

Nunez joined from Benfica for a club record fee of up to £85M.

Both players are expected to be in action this weekend in the Red's opening Premier League game against Fulham.
