Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah said that he hasn’t asked for any “crazy stuff” regarding the new contract he signed with the Premier League club.
However, he wants the deal to consider the huge contribution he had done at Anfield. On his current contract, the Egypt international has less than 18 months lasting and is restating whether he stays or leaves to hands of Liverpool.
Reports indicate that Mohammed Salah who won the champions league and Premier League with Liverpool, demands to get a salary of more than $408,000 on weekly basis. As a result, this would break Red’s wage system and would have a huge policy change by the club. It would also make the owners resistant in handing over the profitable deals to players once they reach 30, which Salah is turning in June.
Mohamed Salah who scored 111 goals in 165 Premier League matches for Liverpool and is on the path to a Third Golden Boot in five years, says that he want to get appreciated. “I want to stay, but it’s not in my hands. “It’s in their hands”. They know what I want. I m not asking for crazy stuff”, Says Salah to the GQ Magazine.
Salah also further said that he has been at the club for five years and he better knows the club. He admires his fans and the fans admire him.
Mohamed Salah, who is currently playing for Egypt at The Africa Cup of Nations, has gotten shortlisted along with the other two men, Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski and Paris Saint-Germain’s Lionel Messi, for FIFA’s best men’s player of 2021. He came seventh in the race for the previous year’s Ballon d’Or, but he aspires to be the world’s best football player. He believes that even if he doesn’t win, he’ll still have a good future ahead.
