“I talked to Salah about the situation at Liverpool. He was very sad. However, it did not affect his performance on the pitch,” said former Egypt international and Salah’s former teammate, Mohamed Aboutrika confirmed on beIN Sports channel. “I know Salah is not happy at Liverpool anymore. He told me the reasons, but it is a secret and I cannot tell it. One of them is that he was not selected as captain against Midtjylland. , as he shared.
Liverpool met Midtjylland in the final round of the Champions League group stage. This is a procedural match, because the English team has definitely led with tickets going on from the previous matches. Jordan Henderson is not in play, but coach Jurgen Klopp gives the captain’s armband to 22-year-old defender Trent Alexander-Arnold, instead of Salah. After that, the Egyptian striker shared his disappointment on AS (Spain).
In the same interview, he reiterated his admiration for Real Madrid and Barca. In the past, the two La Liga giants were repeatedly believed to be related to the Liverpool star. “If Salah was a Real or Barca player and played at the level like Liverpool, he would win the Ballon d’Or,” said Aboutrika – born in 1978 and played 100 games with the Egyptian team – added. “It is normal for a Spanish newspaper to ask Salah about Real and Barca. In my opinion, Liverpool is considering selling Salah for economic purposes. I do not have any influence on Salah’s decision. He smart enough to know what’s best for you. “
In the 7-0 win over Crystal Palace over the weekend, Salah started on the bench. Coach Klopp explained that he needed to give the player a chance to rest after a busy time. After entering the second half, Salah netted twice.
