Liverpool and Egyptian forward Mohammed Salah said he would like to spend the rest of his career at Liverpool, but says his future “depends on the club.”
The attacker’s salary demands are said to be considered too high. But in his interview with Sky Sports, the Egyptian clearly put the ball in the court of his employers.
“It doesn’t depend on me, but if you asked me I would love to stay until the last day of my football [career]. It’s not in my hands, it depends on what the club wants,” Salah told Sky Sports.
Salah’s current Liverpool deal runs out at the end of next season. The former Chelsea and Roma Forward said he doesn’t see himself going up against Liverpool.
“At the moment I can’t see myself ever playing against Liverpool. It’s hard, I don’t want to talk about it, but it would make me really sad.”
The 29-year-old Egypt forward has scored 137 goals in 214 games for the Reds since a £34m move from Roma in 2017, including 12 goals this season in 11 games.
Salah scored a brace in Liverpool’s 2-3 win Champions League game against Atlético Madrid on Tuesday. Reacting to his goals, former Arsenal coach Arsène Wenger believes Mohammed Salah is the best striker in the world at the moment.
“He’s top, top class and he’s certainly the best striker at the moment in the world because he scores goals that nobody else can score,”
“You have to play street football to dribble past people like that in a short space. He’s full of confidence and he’s creative. Overall, I believe as well that he is very intelligent because the sign of players that always improve is the intelligence.” Arsene Wenger said on Bein Sports.
