Mohamed Salah has told Jurgen Klopp he wants to play ‘every minute’ for Liverpool and admits he is not a fan of being rested.

The Egypt international raised eyebrows earlier this season when he stormed past Klopp on the touchline after being substituted in Liverpool’s 1-1 draw with Brighton.

Klopp played down Salah’s unhappy reaction after the game, while the Liverpool manager has also faced a similar issue with Sadio Mane when the Senegalese forward has been brought off early during matches.

And Salah has now explained that his preference is to remain on the pitch at all times.

When asked by beIN Sports if he encourages Klopp’s squad rotation at Liverpool, Salah replied: ‘This is a very difficult question for me to answer.

‘I want to play every minute I can play.

‘But I cannot discuss this because it has to do with the tactics and viewpoint of the coach.

‘But if you are asking me about my opinion, I like to play in every match, the full 90 minutes, and even 95 minutes.

‘I want to play until the last second of the game.

‘But at the end of the day, the coach decides, and the players respect his decision.’

Salah also praised the impact Diogo Jota has had at Liverpool following his move from Wolves last summer.

‘Jota has been doing well since he came, and his goals helped the team win some matches,’ said Salah.

‘He was new, and players were supporting him and talking to him, ensuring he remained comfortable in the team.

‘We are all playing for the team, and the number one team.

‘We certainly miss him, but if one player is not present, another tries to cover and does his best to do it.

‘I hope he will be back soon and, at the same time, that we win matches.’
