Liverpool is not planning to sell its star Mohamed Salah during the upcoming summer transfer period, despite allegations that the Egyptian international is feeling “tight” with the English Premier League champions, according to British press reports on Tuesday.
The retired Egyptian star Mohamed Abu Trika, Salah’s friend and former colleague in the ranks of the Pharaohs, confirmed – during recent media statements – that the Liverpool scorer feels resentful and angry with the English club.
Abu Trika – who is a close friend of Salah – claimed that “Liverpool is considering selling Salah for economic purposes.”
On the other hand, Salah, 28, posted a picture of him on his social media accounts yesterday, Monday, with a bright smile.
The British newspaper “The Sun” indicated that the German “Reds” coach Juergen Klopp and the club’s management are very happy with the remarkable level of Salah with the team, indicating that they have no idea of dispensing with him.
Mohamed Salah – who is currently the top scorer in the English Premier League with 13 goals – continues with a two-goal difference in front of his closest pursuers, until the end of June 2023.
Salah raised speculation about the possibility of his departure from the castle “Anfield” during a long interview he had recently with the Spanish newspaper “AS” (AS), which opened the door to the possibility of joining Real Madrid and Barcelona in the future.
And Abu Trika had said, “I contacted Salah about his situation in Liverpool, and he is upset, but that will never affect his performance on the field.” He continued, “I know that Salah is not happy in Liverpool. He told me the reasons for his unhappiness, but they are secrets, and I cannot talk about them publicly.”
The former Al-Ahly star added, “One of the reasons that angered Salah was that he was not captain of the team against Metjeland of Denmark in the European Champions League.”
Klopp decided to award the captaincy to Trent Alexander-Arnold in place of Salah during the confrontation with the Danish team earlier this month.
The Sun reported that with the Salah family settling in Liverpool, it is unlikely that the incident will force the Egyptian player to seek a transfer to another club.
