PL Legend praises Liverpool for re-signing Salah

Liverpool and Premier League Legend Jamie Carragher heap praises, Liverpool, for figuring out a way to re-sign Mohamed Salah for another three years.

On Friday, July 01, Salah who had transfer rumours swirling around him due to a delayed contract extension was finally tied to Liverpool on a wage of £350,000 per week until the end of the 2024-25 season.

Speaking to Sky Sports News, Jamie Carragher said:

“Losing Mane, it was sad to see that front three break up,” he said. “Lots of Liverpool fans over the last few months were kind of resigned to the fact that Salah might see out the last 12 months of his contract and then move on.

“Perhaps the club were not maybe prepared to go the numbers he wanted or he felt he deserved, and he would leave the club.

“But I think the fact that Origi has moved on and Mane has moved on, and Liverpool have brought in maybe one attacking player who is on similar sorts of wages [in Darwin Nunez]. I think the fact that two have gone and one has come in means that they could maybe get closer to the numbers Salah wanted.

“I think everyone is just delighted Salah has signed, and fingers crossed he produces over the next three years what he has produced over the last five years – and I am sure that he can.”

Carragher continued by saying:

“I don’t think there would have been much criticism if Salah had left, but I think now and again when you have someone as special as Salah, the rule that you have to have in place, you have to certainly bend them.

“Salah is already a Liverpool legend – and if he’d moved on in 12 months, he’d have still been a legend.

“What players like him, Alisson, Van Dijk, Mane – how they’ve changed the face of Liverpool Football Club along with the manager means they will all be legends no matter when they move on for the club and for whatever reason they move on from the club.

“I think the supporters are very thankful for what these players have given. Salah will finish his time in the top five or six players ever to have played for the club.”

Klopp on Mo Salah

I was “really pleased – really, really pleased”,

“It’s the best decision for us and best decision for him. He belongs with us, I think. This is his club now.

“I have no doubt Mo’s best years are still to come. And that’s saying something because the first five seasons here have been the stuff of legend.”

“Fitness-wise, he’s a machine – in the most incredible shape. He works hard on it, and he gets his rewards. His ability and his skill level get higher each season, and his decision-making has gone to another level also.

“He is adored by his teammates. As coaches, we know we work with someone special. And the supporters have crowned him a king. So, very cool.

“It is just great news. It makes me smile thinking about it. He stays with us for longer, and it means we can achieve more together.”
