Liverpool legend, John Barnes has come out to say that the Reds would move on if Mohammed Salah leaves the club. He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, he expects Liverpool to still thrive even if they don’t manage to tie Mohamed Salah down to a new deal because Klopp doesn’t manage a one-man team.
Barnes added that he expects the talks with Salah to continue for a long period of time because all parties will take their time.
His words, “Hopefully Salah or Liverpool will compromise and find an agreement, and if they don’t, we’ll move on, Liverpool will still be there.”
“Jurgen’s new contract and Mo Salah’s potential contract renewal aren’t mutually exclusive. Liverpool will want both Klopp and Salah to stay and it’s not a decision of one over the other.”
“Klopp has signed for four more years but it doesn’t mean anything if they finish mid-table next year, he probably won’t be there. Managers’ situations are different to players’ situations.”
“They’ll have been talking to Salah about a new contract from the start of the season; Klopp committing his future will have nothing to do with it.”
“These talks will continue for a long period of time. It’s easier to tie managers down as they’re not being touted to go to other clubs, unlike players. Salah will have more options than Klopp if he decides he wants to go somewhere else.”
