Ex Liverpool defender, Jamie Carragher has come out to say that the club’s owners will not be forgiven if Mohammed Salah leaves. He recently revealed this while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, he can only urge the hierarchy to extend the Egyptian’s contract sooner rather than later because he is very important to the club.
Carragher added that Mane and Salah are obviously a big miss for Liverpool right now but the rest of the squad will have to cope.
His words, “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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“I would love this deal to be done as quickly as possible. You cannot forget the price Liverpool signed Salah for.”
“It wasn’t as if they went and spent £100million, they did what they are great at and did a brilliant deal. The money they have invested in him already – transfer fee and wages – has been a snip.”
“This is not a case of giving the player exactly what he wants, but Liverpool Football Club and the owners, I don’t think they would be forgiven if Salah left this club in the summer or in 18 months’ time.”
“He’s a Liverpool legend, one of the greatest players the club has ever had, and it needs to be sorted sooner rather than later.”
