Mohamed Salah has sent a farewell message to Jurgen Klopp after his final match as Liverpool manager.

Sunday saw Klopp take charge of the Reds' Premier League finale against Wolves at Anfield. The fixture was the German's final match as Liverpool boss before officially stepping down from his role this summer.

Klopp announced back in January that he would be leaving Anfield at the end of the season. It was confirmed on Monday that the 56-year-old would be replaced by Arne Slot, who will officially take on the role as Liverpool's new head coach from June 1.

Salah was signed by the Reds in June 2017 and was one of Klopp's most important signings across his near-nine-year spell as manager. The Egyptian has scored 211 goals in 349 appearances and was part of the Liverpool squad that won all eight major trophies across Klopp's tenure.

Almost exactly two hours after Liverpool confirmed Slot's appointment, Salah sent a message to Klopp. The 31-year-old offered his appreciation to his now-former manager in an emotional farewell to the departing Reds boss.

"It was great sharing all those trophies and experiences with you [Klopp] over the past seven years," wrote Salah on X, formerly known as Twitter, accompanied by a photo of the pair at the AXA Training Centre.

"I wish you the best of luck for the future and hope we meet again."

With Klopp departing this summer, Salah and the rest of the Liverpool squad will now be looking ahead to working under Slot next season. Slot will officially take charge in June and will oversee the pre-season preparations ahead of the start of the Premier League campaign in August.

Salah's future has already been the subject of speculation in the aftermath of Klopp's departure. The forward's contract at Anfield is set to expire in 2025, with rumours likely to swirl until a decision is made regarding his future.
