Liverpool urged to sell Real Madrid target of Mohamed Salho
Mohamed Salah has been one of Liverpool’s standout players over the past few seasons, but former Reds goalkeeper David James believes the Egyptian should be sold. James has urged Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp to capitalize on the forward this summer.
They told Stadium Astro:
“I think Liverpool actually play better without Salah. Perhaps an opportunity for Liverpool to capitalize on Salah… as you say, [Diogo] Jota then naturally fits into that front three, [Roberto] Firmino certainly gets more freedom. Then Liverpool have a new dynamic ahead of what appears to be reliance, or reliance, on the goals of the advice.”
Asked whether Liverpool should listen to Mohamed Salah’s proposals, James said:
“Yeah, tomorrow. I’ll do it now. It’s not about Mo Salah not being a good player, his goal record speaks for itself.
“Like someone in the figures [Sergio] Aguero, where Pep Guardiola can see Man City and Aguero is not needed. I think Salah has compromised on Liverpool’s liquidity, even if he scores.”
Salah scored 22 goals in 37 appearances for Liverpool in the Premier League last season.
