Mo Salah has reassured Liverpool fans that he is happy at the club and has no plans to leave despite claims from Gary Neville that he won't be at Anfield in 12 months' time.

The Egyptian has proven a shrewd bit of business by the Reds since his £37million move from Roma in 2017.

But Neville believes Salah, who has been linked with Real Madrid in the past, will jump ship.

"Salah's going to leave in the next 12 months, I can see it already," Neville told Sky Sports earlier this week.

"He [Jamie Carragher] knows, he won't say it. He will [leave], I can absolutely guarantee it. I can see it, you can feel it, you can smell it."

But, speaking to CNN, Salah said: "I'm happy at Liverpool. I'm happy in the city.

"I love the fans and they love me. I'm happy at the club."

Following last season's Champions League success, Salah now has his sights firmly fixed on more medals.

"Keep working hard and if you want to win another thing you have to work harder than maybe did in the last season and you have to really be humble, and okay, Champions League is over. It was last year, so forget it. Fight for the new trophies again this season," he added.

"If you play in a club like Liverpool, there's always big expectation. You have to win something.

"So there's always expectation high in the football. So not even if it's not from yourselves, from the people because they want to see the club winning something."
