legend believes that will buck the trend of ’s star players in recent years and will opt to stay at the Merseyside club, as the German believes that Salah has “found a home” at Anfield.

Former Germany international and Liverpool star Dietmar Hamann has explained why he thinks that Salah sees his long term future at the Reds, despite the likes of Luis Suarez, Raheem Sterling and Philippe Coutinho moving on to pastures new in the last four years.

“I just don’t see Salah following in the footsteps of Suarez and Coutinho,” said Hamann. “For South American players, signing for Barcelona or Real Madrid is a huge thing for them to do because of the links to their culture.”

“I haven’t met Salah, but from what people have told me about him he seems to be someone who loves being loved like he is by the Kop. I think that he has found a home, somewhere he is respected and appreciated, and he’s also working with a manager who was brave enough to pay a lot of money for him when others looked at what had happened at Chelsea.”

Salah has quickly become a fan favourite at Anfield and the Liverpool faithful will be hoping that Hamann’s words prove to be true as they look to be building a potential title challenging side for the future, with Salah as one of the centrepieces of the team.

In the meantime, Salah will turn his attention to the 2018 FIFA World Cup where Egypt’s opening game is against Uruguay on June 15th at 2PM Egyptian time.
