Salah Makes Admission Over Liverpool Future

Mohamed Salah has made a big admission over his future at Liverpool amid reports he has asked to become one of the highest-paid players in England.

AFCON Salah: Egypt Are Not Favourites For AFCON

A few months ago it was claimed that the 29-year-old has demanded a bumper salary at the Reds, one that would see him reportedly earn between £300 000 (R6.3 million) and £350 000 (R7.4 million) a week.

Salah’s contract at the club expires in 2023 and he has previously discussed his desire to play in Spain, with Barcelona and Real Madrid believed to have been interested in his signature.

The Egyptian, however, has made it clear that he wishes to remain at Liverpool for the foreseeable future but that he ultimately has no control over his current situation.

"I want to stay, but it’s not in my hands," he told GQ.

"It’s in their hands. They know what I want. I’m not asking for crazy stuff.

"The thing is when you ask for something, they show you they can give you something... because they appreciate what you did for the club. I’ve been here for my fifth year now.

"I know the club very well. I love the fans. The fans love me. But with the administration, they have [been] told the situation. It’s in their hands."

Salah has been in remarkable form this season in England, having contributed to 33 goals in 26 matches in all competitions so far.

The winger’s legacy, though, is far greater than his influence only in this campaign, with it being widely thought that he is among the club’s best players of all time.
