It was announced last Friday that the Egyptian international had penned a new deal with the club (2025).
Klopp said that he is delighted Salah has agreed new terms with the Reds and the German is confident the forward's best years are still to come.
“This is a special treat for our supporters to enjoy their weekend even more. I’m sure there will be some celebrations for this news tonight,” he told Liverpoolfc.com.
“Really pleased – really, really pleased. It’s the best decision for us and best decision for him. He belongs with us I think. This is his club now.
“Of course it has taken a little time but that’s absolutely OK and the best things are always worth waiting for anyway. Mo is one of the best players in the world; it’s only normal there are things to sort when you are at his level. So big credit to Julian Ward and Mike Gordon for guiding us to this destination.
“I have no doubt Mo’s best years are still to come. And that’s saying something, because the first five seasons here have been the stuff of legend.
“Fitness-wise, he’s a machine – in the most incredible shape. He works hard on it and he gets his rewards. His ability and his skill level gets higher each season, and his decision-making has gone to another level also.
“He is adored by his teammates. As coaches we know we work with someone special. And the supporters have crowned him a king. So, very cool.
“It is just great news. It makes me smile thinking about it. He stays with us for longer and it means we can achieve more together.”

Anfield Watch Verdict
We are absolutely thrilled that Salah has agreed new terms with Liverpool. He is a world-class winger after all.
Salah has scored 120 goals in 193 Premier League appearances. It is also important to note that the Egyptian international is only 30 years of age.
With that being the case, we are confident Salah's career is far from over. The club must agree with the aforementioned statement, otherwise they wouldn't have offered him a new contract.
We wish Salah and the Reds all the best ahead of the new season. Liverpool's first game of the 2022-23 campaign is against Fulham at Craven Cottage on the 6th of August.
