Mohamed Salah showed his dedication to Liverpool as he enjoyed a 3am cooldown in the swimming pool following the Reds' win over AC Milan.

The Anfield club opened their Champions League campaign with an impressive 3-2 win over the Italians.

Salah continued his fine start to the season as he netted the equaliser to make it 2-2 as he made amends for his penalty miss earlier in the first half.

All the talk after the game was about the Egyptian winger's importance to Liverpool and how Jurgen Klopp needs to get his prized asset to pen a new deal, with two years left on his current contract, amid reports talks have stalled.

Salah has continued to ignore the noise surrounding his future and focus on what he does on the pitch by being the Reds' main man so far this term.

And what he did after the Champions Victory over Milan showed once again that he's not interested in any of the distractions off the field.

Salah posted a picture on his Instagram story of him swimming at 3am on Thursday morning as he recovered from the high octane match.

Michael Owen reckons Liverpool will tie down Salah to a new deal despite the breakdown in negotiations.

The former Anfield striker said on BT Sport: “I’m guessing his deal is more complicated than the others as he’s the main goalscorer and the big earner.

“I imagine his is the most complicated as it will probably be his last big contract. From the club’s point of view, I know everyone says, ‘give him what he wants’. But fans don’t actually want that.

“You need structure. If you give Salah double what Van Dijk’s on, suddenly there could be a problem in the camp.

“We’ve seen lots of instances like that over the years, at Arsenal in the main. Aubameyang was just given what he wanted and now look…

“It’s his last big contract, he’s not going to move and he’s on whatever he’s on a week. It’s not as easy as that. I think you’ve got to keep a bit of respect and parity without the club.

“He’ll probably become Liverpool’s top earner because I think they’ll find a way. There’s no word coming out that they’re miles apart so I think it will get done but I do think Liverpool are right to make it as reasonable as possible.”
