Liverpool and Egypt star Mohamed Salah gave a sneak preview of his new haircut last week but a picture of the forward's changed look in full has now emerged.

Salah, who has already confirmed that he will be playing for the Reds next season, showed a glimpse of his new look with a photograph posted on Instagram last week. It appeared to show the 31-year-old had shaved his famous locks off.

Now, a fuller image has emerged after Salah was pictured after linking up with the Egyptian national team. The Pharaohs are set to face Burkina Faso next Friday and then Guinea-Bissau three days later.

Both of those fixtures are World Cup 2026 qualifiers. There is also a possibility that Salah could represent his country at the Olympic Games in Paris this summer, though that is yet to be decided for certain.

Salah's famous hairstyle features longer hair but that appears to be a thing of the past now. Perhaps the Egyptian has decided that it is time for a drastic change, or perhaps he was simply hoping to cool down over the summer.

Liverpool.com says: Salah should remain as a key part of the team under Arne Slot but there is a contract decision to be made over the Egyptian, who, like Virgil van Dijk and Trent Alexander-Arnold, only has a year left on his current deal. Salah was Liverpool's top scorer last season and no one can match him for consistency so it would be very handy to get him tied down to an extension.

That won't come cheaply, though, with Liverpool having made him its highest-paid player of all time in 2022. There is no reason for Salah to want to leave any time soon (and the Saudi Pro League has become less attractive, if anything, over the last few months, even if the money is still there) but an interesting few months might lie ahead.
