Salah’s former club in Egypt cash in on Liverpool move
Arab Contractors chairman Mohsen Salah confirmed that his club received the solidarity and training compensation after the transfer of their former player Mohamed Salah from AS Roma to Liverpool.
The Egyptian, who moved to Liverpool coming from AS Roma this year, has been on fire this season, scoring 20 goals and assisting six in 26 games across all competitions and is currently leading the race for the Premier League Golden Boot.
“Contractual matters in Europe are proceeding in accordance to the proper regulations,” Mohsen Salah said in radio comments. “Arab Contractors received 4% of Salah’s contract value.”
According to FIFA’s Regulations on the status and transfer of players regulations, the winger’s former Egyptian club is entitled to a percentage of the player’s contract under article 20 which states the training compensation and article 21 which states the solidarity mechanism.
Article 21 states that if a professional is transferred before the expiry of his contract, any club that has contributed to his education and training shall receive a proportion of the compensation paid to his former club, thus Arab Contractors were able to obtain 4% of Salah’s contract with Liverpool.
“There are ongoing negotiations with Arsenal at the moment regarding obtaining a percentage of Mohamed Elneny’s contract after his move from Basel FC,” the chairman added.
