According to Danny Murphy, with Liverpool in the 1997-2004 period, Mohamed Salah had the right to choose a new club, instead of dedicating himself to the end of his career for the Anfield team.
“As a Liverpool fan, everyone wants Salah to make a long-term commitment to the team and quell any transfer rumors,” Danny Murphy told Sports Mail. “But in this era it is very unlikely. Salah is not required to dedicate the rest of his career to Liverpool, or close every door to join Barca, Real. If you put yourself in Salah, think. that’s easy to understand “.
The future of Mohamed Salah became unpredictable after he publicly praised Barca and Real in AS (Spain). In an interview three weeks ago, the Egyptian international admitted his disappointment at not being able to wear the captain’s armband when Liverpool met Midtjylland in the Champions League.
“He didn’t grow up in the UK,” Murphy added. “The Salah family may want to live somewhere else with a warmer climate, or better suited to their culture. I would play for Liverpool for life if I got Salah right now. But that’s the time. For me, now the players have many options I always think to judge a player, look at their performance on the pitch This season and last seasons, no one can blame them. Salah’s contribution. He’s in good shape and we should focus on that. “
Salah has scored 110 goals in 173 games for Liverpool since joining Anfield in 2017. Of these, there are 16 goals this season. The 28-year-old striker leads the Premier League top scorer list with 13 goals. “Perhaps Salah will leave at the earliest, in the summer of 2021,” predicted Murphy. “But nothing is clear yet. In the meantime, Liverpool fans enjoy his talent and hope Salah stays behind to win more Premier League and Champions League.“
Salah also has a contract with Liverpool until the summer of 2023. This contract does not have a break clause, so he can only leave if Liverpool agrees.
