“I hope to be able to play for many more years. Why not”, Salah said. “No one knows what’s going to happen in the future, so… maybe one day, yes.
“I hope to be doing the same thing that I’ve been doing in recent years. Winning trophies, scoring goals, helping my team win trophies… That’s the most important thing for me.”
