Liverpool talisman Mohamed Salah deserves to be paid more than Manchester United's Cristiano Ronaldo, according to a former Premier League star.
The Egyptian superstar has received a lot of plaudits following his impressive form for the Reds this season, having bagged 15 goals in 12 matches across all competitions so far.
Salah's representatives are in talks with the Anfield club over a contract extension, and former Aston Villa star Gabriel Agbonlahor feels the Egypt international needs to be the highest earner in the league.
"If I'm Mo Salah, I want £1 more than the highest-paid player in the Premier League. If you don't give it to me, I'll go somewhere that will," Agbonlahor told talkSPORT.
"I'm that important to Liverpool. Without me in that team, I don't think Liverpool will get the chance to win the league or the chance to win the Champions League.
"I feel if Mo Salah is that good, that important to Liverpool, they should pay him what he deserves to be paid.
"Mo Salah is that important, I mean, the best player in the world.
"No other person can even proclaim to be doing what Mo Salah is doing in the biggest league in the world, the hardest league in the world, a lot harder than the German league.
"And if I'm the one, I want to be paid exactly what I deserve. I mean, Ronaldo is on £500 000 a week, I want £501 000."
