Jamie Carragher has warned Liverpool owners that they will never be forgiven if Mohamed Salah is allowed to leave. Salah is under contract till 2023 and has expressed his desire to stay on numerous occasions. Recently, Salah went as far as to reiterate that he is not asking for crazy stuff. Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp also revealed that negotiations between the club and the player were in a good place.
“Those two players [Salah and Mane] are obviously a big miss and this talk of Salah’s contract will probably intensify even more because when he is not there, you see the effect it has,” Jamie Carragher said about Liverpool legend Mohamed Salah. “As a Liverpool supporter, you should be wary that this [Salah’s contract situation] is dragging on. Other big players at Liverpool have signed contracts in the last three or four months, the goalkeeper [Alisson Becker], Trent [Alexander-Arnold], Virgil van Dijk, huge figures in this team.”
“Salah wants to be paid as well as any top player in the Premier League or world football, and why shouldn’t he? He deserves that, we’re talking about one of the best players in the world,” he added. “The problem, and the angle Liverpool may be looking at it from, is where Salah would go? The Spanish giants [Real Madrid and Barcelona] are really out of the equation now given the problems they have financially. Would Salah leave and ruin his legacy by going to Manchester City or Manchester United? Probably not, so that’s probably Liverpool’s bargaining chip.”
