Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has defended management over their handling of Mohamed Salah's new contract talks.

Klopp has hinted a lot of the complications surrounding the deal are down to the player's agent.

Salah, 29, has just 18 months left on his current contract at Anfield.

And with pressure mounting to get an extension sorted before Europe's fellow big clubs try and pounce, the Reds boss knows it is not a simple negotiation.

Asked once more on the Salah saga, Klopp said: "I don't know what I can say on top of what I said already. 'What is the problem?' I wouldn't say there's a problem, to be honest, these are conversations.

"If two big companies try to come together out there usually in normal life, in business, that's not done overnight.

"A big contract, it's not like buying a smartphone [that] you just sign one thing and it's done.

"There are a lot of things to consider – some on the club's side, some from the player's side and a lot from the agent's side. That's the thing, nothing else."
