On Friday, Mohamed Salah put an end to speculation over his Liverpool future after signing a new contract that will run until 2025 according to reports.
Salah has scored 156 goals for Liverpool in 254 appearances. He had entered the final year of his previous contract with talks stalling over the 30-year-old's wage demands.
However, he has more trophies at Anfield in his sights after finally puting pen to paper, the Egypt forward said.
"I feel great and excited to win trophies with the club. It's a happy day for everyone," Salah told Liverpool's website, adding, "It takes a little bit of time, I think, to renew, but now everything is done so we just need to focus on what's next."
Salah has become an essential part of Jurgen Klopp's side, since joining in 2017, which helped them become serial contenders for domestic and European success.
He scored in the 2019 Champions League final victory against Tottenham and was the top scorer when they won the Premier League for the first time in 30 years in 2020.
Last season, Salah was the Premier League player of the year by both players and football writers after scoring 31 goals that took Klopp's men to the brink of a historic quadruple.
Liverpool won the League Cup and FA Cup, but did not earn the Premier League title and lost the Champions League final 1-0 to Real Madrid.
"I think you can see in the last five or six years the team was always going (upwards)," Salah added.
"Last season we were close to winning four, but unfortunately in the last week of the season we lost two trophies.
"I think we are in a good position to fight for everything. We have new signings as well.
"We just need to keep working hard, have a good vision, be positive and go for everything again."
