In an interview with Sky Sports, the 31-year-old winger was asked about the potential impact of Klopp's departure on his future this summer.

Salah made it clear that such changes are a natural part of life in professional sports.

"It's part of life now, that everything moves. Players have left already, very important players. The manager is also very important for the club and is leaving," Salah stated.

"One day I will leave the club, but Klopp's departure doesn't affect my future," the Egyptian star confidently added.

As Liverpool faces a demanding schedule, Salah emphasized the importance for the team to focus on delivering as many trophies as possible before Klopp's exit.

Currently, they are on the verge of securing a spot in the quarterfinals of the UEFA Europa League.

Next week, the Reds will face Manchester United in the FA Cup quarterfinals.

Sitting at the top of the English Premier League table with 63 points, Liverpool holds a one-point lead over defending champions Manchester City, who are in second place.

"These are decisive games if I am being honest," Salah acknowledged.

"There have been a few years where they have won the league by one point, so when we lost at the Etihad, that was a game where they won the league," Salah said.

"It's always a decisive game, and I think if we win the next game, we have a great chance to win the title. But I think we have to focus on what we can do and go from there," Salah added.

Liverpool's upcoming match against Manchester City on Sunday, marking the 28th matchday of the English Premier League, carries significant importance for the team's aspirations.

"That [game on Sunday] is very important to give us a push that you want against Man City. The difference would then be three or four points between you, City, and Arsenal," Salah explained.

"So, it's still a long way to go. Also, in the Europa League, in the semi-finals or final, you will face some very good teams..." Salah concluded optimistically.
