Mo Salah is world class but Liverpool would be mad to pay him £500,000 per week

Posted by

On Sunday afternoon in front of an expected worldwide audience of millions, Mo Salah showed once again just why he is one of the best players on the planet at present.

The Egyptian King ran Manchester United ragged at Old Trafford, and was a deserved recipient of the match ball in what was a stunning 5-0 win for his Liverpool side.

It isn’t too much of a stretch to say that he’s unplayable at this moment in time and if he continues in the same vain, the Reds have to be considered a contender for the Premier League title later this season.

All of that said, news that his representative is demanding £500,000 per week for his client, per Football Insider, will surely come as a shock to John W Henry and the money men at Fenway Sports Group.

Mo Salah is in the form of his life at Liverpool

No one doubts Salah’s importance to the club, but there has to be a ceiling on salaries because no player is worth half a million pounds a week.

Liverpool are where they are not only because they have a best in class manager in Jurgen Klopp, but they also have owners who have done things the right way for years.

If their business model was to be blown apart just to keep Salah happy, Liverpool would be sliding down a very slippery slope indeed.

  1. Losing Salah will cost the club alot more money than that and in the same time it would not even gurantee them the same level of return! Christiano Ronaldo is getting 510,000 Pound/ week and he does not give half of what Salah is giving Liverpool, Also the commercial value of Salah is increasing everyday while the Commercial value of CR7 is decreasing everyday
