Mohamed Salah expected to stay at Liverpool in early boost for new manager Arne Slot

Posted by

Mohamed Salah is reportedly expected to stay at Liverpool as they plan for the Egypt international to be part of their plans next season under new manager Arne Slot.

Although things have not gone well for the 31-year-old recently, he remains a world class talent and it seems the Reds are keen to keep him around for a bit longer, according to The Athletic.

Salah no longer looks to be at the very peak of his powers, but it seems he’s happy at the club and they are happy with him, despite a surprisingly public touch-line row with current manager Jurgen Klopp during the 2-2 draw with West Ham United at the weekend.

Klopp will be leaving Liverpool at the end of the season anyway, with The Athletic noting that the club are finalising a deal to appoint Feyenoord boss Slot as the German’s replacement.

Mohamed Salah looks set to stay at Liverpool

Many Liverpool fans will surely be relieved that their hero is not leaving, in what would’ve been an extra bit of drama for the new manager and board to deal with in what is likely to be a testing transitional period at Anfield.

Klopp’s departure will surely be difficult enough as it is, so to lose a long-serving, experienced big name like Salah would have been another blow and a complication that Slot could really do without as he takes on such a high-pressure job.

The Athletic note that there have been links between Salah and Saudi Pro League clubs in the past, but it seems the expectation from everyone now is that the former Roma man will be staying where he is.

Salah has one year left on his LFC contract and it will be interesting to see if there’s any talk of a potential extension, or if he merely sees out his current deal to its end before calling him on his career on Merseyside.

  1. I think the time is right for him to go and for the club to get some needed money in. With FFP, we, like all clubs except Chelsea and City are restricted on new transfers etc. The money would be vital to allow the new manager to reinvest. I would also look at increasing the money by selling Gomez, Tsimikas, Endo to start with. Get a powerful striker, put Nunez on the right, get a powerful DF and use the youngsters who did really well this season. I would be happy with fourth next season as long as we properly invest and plan for the future.

  2. I think that Salah should stay in Liverpool because he is the best player in the PL .The new coach will definitely depend on him to re build the team.

  3. Look at best he has at least 3 ro 4 years left in him yes there may be some issue but truth lying we don’t now best he does what he’s best at and start playing with his team not his self ,there times were he or other players could of passed of the ball to score that’s the main issue I believe and start playing as a whole team not just one

  4. I would only keep him next year if he signs a contract extension. If he doesn’t get along with the new manager, we lose him for free and miss out on $150M in transfer fees.
