The Egyptian footballer shared his frustration on social media about the Reds failure to qualify to the Champions League, but his coach had something else to think of that.

Mohamed Salah's words about how disappointed he was for not making it to the UEFA Champions League next season, especially within the squad.

The controversy escalated up to the point where coach Jürgen Klopp had to clarify his star's future and commitment to the club following their end of their hopes to play Champions League matches in the 2023-24 campaign.

"I have no worries, no. I couldn't read anything that could lead in that direction. Obviously Mo loves being here and Mo was part of, he said, apologies for what 'we' did. He didn't say: 'apologies for what the other guys did, but I had to go with them'…not at all. It is all fine," Klopp said.

But then, Klopp went further to explain what he would do if any of his players stepped up and asked to be transferred out of the team due to the outcome of this season.

"If ever a player would come to me, and said: 'oh we didn't qualify for the Champions League, I have to leave, I would drive him to the other club myself. I would take the key and say 'come in the car, where do you want to go, I drive you'," Klopp added.

The German boss criticized players who commit their future to their clubs only if they are involved in European tournaments, mainly because it is not something he would do.

That would be something I never could understand. It is like I would say 'oh we didn't qualify for the Champions League, I need to work in the Champions League so I go',"Klopp said using a childish voice.

The Reds will finish the 2022-23 season in fifth place, regardless of what happens in their final clash against Southampton, who have been relegated to the Championship weeks ago.
