Liverpool legend wants to extend Mohamed Salah’s contract while referring to his own career

Liverpool legend wants to extend Mohamed Salah's contract while referring to his own career Transfers

Mohamed Salah, the Egyptian international who joined Liverpool from AS Roma, has been a prolific scorer in his first year with the club. His combination with the front three of Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino was outstanding, and he kept coming close to scoring goals in a variety of patterns.

At the age of 31, he is still leading Liverpool to victory as an ace, leading the team in both goals and assists.

He is a true leader of the attacking lineup. He also has the ability to score when it counts, and his star power is one of the best in the Premier League.

Egyptian King was the subject of much interest from Saudi Arabia during the summer transfer window.

The Saudi Professional League, which has attracted some of the best players in the world, has its sights set on the Anfield ace, and it would not be surprising to see a big-money club make a move for him next summer.

One player hoping to extend his contract with the winger, who turns 32 next year, is Liverpool legend and former Wales international Ian Rush.

The highly determined striker, who scored 336 goals in 649 games for the club, is hoping that the Egyptian international will stay at Anfield for a long time, while also mentioning his own transfer.

“I’d love him to sign a new contract, it’d be great. He’s got another year after this. He’s a perfect professional and the younger players can learn from him. I’d love him to extend his contract. We don’t know what will happen but I’m sure every Liverpool supporter would love that as well.”

“I left because I wasn’t playing regularly. I just wanted to play football. I didn’t want to sit on the bench and that’s what you’ve got to look at. I left here to go to Leeds United because I wanted to be playing week in, week out.”

“I looked at (Robbie) Fowler and (Stan) Collymore, they were doing really well together, and I didn’t want to be sitting on the bench. I was enjoying my football and that’s the reason why I went to Leeds.”

“But that was my situation, it depends if you are happy sitting on the bench or not. But Mo’s not even got to that stage yet so no, there’s not really any reason for him to go yet.”
