‘Suddenly there could be a problem’ – Liverpool warning sent as caption details conversation with Mohamed Salah – .

Liverpool fans around the world are thirsty for information on Mohamed Salah’s future.
The Egypt international is arguably the best player on the planet right now, shining for the Reds in the opening weeks of the 2021-22 season.

While fans have loved what they have seen of Salah so far, the forward is yet to commit his future to the club in the form of a new contract. The 29-year-old’s current terms expire at the end of the 2022-2023 season.

Naturally, the absence of a new deal is not only a topic of discussion among fans, but also among Liverpool legends. Here’s what five Kop heroes have said about Salah and his potential new contract at Anfield.

Jamie Carragher

Carragher believes that even though Liverpool have a strict salary structure they should consider making an exception given how important Salah is to the team.

“I know the situation Liverpool find themselves in,” he said after Salah’s superb goal in the 2-2 draw with Manchester City, according to Sky Sports. “They don’t have the finances of Manchester City when you think about the salaries they give. But right now Salah is playing as well as anyone in European football.

“Liverpool cannot afford to let their contractual situation drag on, with the threat that they could lose him within the next two years.

“He’s a guy who really takes care of him, and you can see him when he takes his top off when he scores a goal. I’m not saying he’s going to be like Cristiano Ronaldo when he’s 35 or 36, still leading in goals. graphics, but I think this boy has a lot going on in him as he enters his 30s.

“It is imperative that in his prime he still scores goals in the Liverpool red jersey. “

Robbie Fowler

Fowler believes that even if Liverpool broke their pay structure to offer Salah a contract worth £ 500,000 a week, it wouldn’t bother the others in the dressing room due to his importance to the cause.

“Mo Salah is, without a doubt, world class,” Fowler told the Daily Mirror in October. “And, in my opinion, there won’t be a single dissenting voice in Liverpool’s dressing room over the Egyptian being rewarded with a new contract that will make him the club’s biggest salary.

“I will be amazed if there are no discussions on a new contract going on. He will almost certainly believe that he is worth a little more than he earns and, of course, will be entitled to a raise. “

Michael Owen

On the other hand, Owen believes giving in to any demand from Salah could create problems within the squad.

“From a club point of view, I know everyone is saying ‘give him what he wants’,” he told BT Sport (h / t Metro) in September. “But the fans don’t really want that.

“You need structure. If you give Salah double that of Van Dijk, suddenly there could be a problem in the camp.

The former Liverpool forward has also said he wants the club to avoid making the same mistake that teams like Arsenal have in recent years, allowing key players to enter the final year of their contract.

“We’ve seen a lot of examples like that over the years, mostly at Arsenal. Aubameyang just got what he wanted and now look…

“It’s his last big contract, he’s not going to budge and he’s on what he is for a week. It’s not that easy. I think we have to keep a little respect and parity without the club. “

Steve McManaman

McManaman also believes Liverpool need to use common sense when agreeing to a salary package with Salah on new terms, insisting that £ 500,000 a week salary is not something the club should accept.

“I don’t think Liverpool would pay a player that much salary,” he said in September, via HorseRacing.net (h / t Football 365).

‘It’s hard to comment on topics like these as there are maybe five different publications releasing five different sets of numbers, but if there is some truth in the demand for £ 500,000 per week I don’t think so. not that Liverpool should pay it. “

Ian Rush

Rush revealed at Echo that he recently spoke with Salah and said he believes Liverpool are currently in a difficult position with the striker’s extension.

However, the Reds’ all-time top scorer believes the club’s current finisher needs to focus on continuing production on the pitch.

“I know he would like to stay at Liverpool,” he said. “There are no fans who will love Mo Salah more than Liverpool fans, there is no doubt about it.

“It’s a difficult situation. I know Jurgen Klopp loves it and stuff, so you just have to wait and see. But if you’re Mo Salah, you keep scoring goals. “
