Mohamed Salah wages: £39m new signing will earn less than eight LFC teammates including £460k-a-week English quartet

Posted by

Liverpool broke their transfer record this week as they splashed out £39m, as reported by the Daily Star, to recruit Mohamed Salah from Roma.

Salah is Liverpool’s most expensive player ever in terms of his transfer fee, but not his wages.

According to the Daily Star, eight players and manager Jurgen Klopp are paid more than Salah, who is said to be on £90,000 a week following his move.

Four of the players on bigger money than Salah are English, with captain Jordan Henderson (£100k), striker Daniel Sturridge (£120k), makeshift left-back James Milner (£120k) and attacking midfielder Adam Lallana (£120k) earning £460,000 per week between them.

Liverpool’s highest-earning player is Brazilian playmaker Philippe Coutinho, who is on £150,000 a week, which is still £71,000 less than Klopp’s seven-day rate.

The Reds’ other six-figure-a-week players are Roberto Firmino and Dejan Lovren, who are both on £100k wages, and Cameroonian centre-back Joel Matip, who is on £112k.

Below figures all as printed by the Daily Star.
