Ian Wright worried Salah leaves Liverpool like Coutinho
Mohamed Salah surprised everyone this season and has now reached 28 goals in the Premier League and 36 goals in all competitions with the Reds, just one goal less than Real Madrid legend Cristiano Ronaldo.
“Salah’s displays for Liverpool have been phenomenal. It’s reaching the stage where it’s pointless making comparisons with heroes of the past because he’s outdoing them all,” Wright told the Sun.
The 54-year-old thinks that Salah will carry on his stunning performances next season too, however, he is not sure if he will be doing that wearing Liverpool’s shirt or not. Wright worried that the Egyptian will have to follow Philippe Coutinho’s path.
“And ironically it is his performances on Merseyside which could – and almost certainly will – give them a huge problem before too long. Are you telling me when the rebuilding begins at Real – and they need it – he won’t be at the top of their wanted list?”
“And while it’s blindingly obvious Liverpool will put up the fight of their lives to keep him – point out he’s contracted to 2022 with another deal in the offing – it’s a battle they will find hard to win,” he explained.
News and reports keep circulating linking Spanish giants Real Madrid and the Egyptian star for a possible summer move, yet, Liverpool will certainly not give up the fight over Salah easily, especially after losing Coutinho to Barcelona.
