Ex Liverpool and Real Madrid footballer, Steve McManaman has asked Mane and Salah to ignore any Real Madrid interest because they are already at the world’s best club.
The African stars are currently dazzling in the EPL, presently topping the league, finishing 2nd in the PL last season and lifting the club’s first Champions League since 2005 with a win vs Tottenham last year.
This has prompted several interests from Spanish giant, Real Madrid but Steve has warned them that they and other Liverpool players do not need to think about stepping up to a bigger club since they already play for the best team on earth, and under a good manager.
His words, “Is the Premier League ahead of La Liga? Yes, right now it is,”
“Because when you are playing well in England, for example, there are clubs in Spain that want those players. But now we are lucky because the best clubs are in England.
“So you don’t need to play in Real Madrid, for example, because the best teams are Liverpool and Manchester City. Liverpool fans are very happy with the [Mane-Firmino-Salah] trident.
“Right now Liverpool are stronger than Barca, Madrid or Juventus, but you need a bit of luck when you play in the Champions League. In February and March the Spanish teams will also be stronger and better. But speaking right now, Liverpool and Manchester City are Europe’s best clubs.”
“There have been fantastic nights: when you lose 3-0 at Camp Nou and you play at Anfield without Salah and without Firmino and you win 4-0 in a crazy, incredible atmosphere,”
“I think it is one of the greatest nights in Liverpool history, and Liverpool have lots of history, but that night against Barcelona was very special.”
