Paul Scholes offers Mo Salah verdict Liverpool fans will love
Liverpool are yet to agree a new contract with Mo Salah, and former Manchester United midfielder, Paul Scholes, believes the club simply has to pay him the big money to keep him.
Salah has been on a remarkable run of form this season already. He scored a stunning goal against Manchester City recently and is being widely lauded as the world’s best player at the moment.
Talk of a move to the likes of PSG, Real Madrid, and Barcelona are not yet going away. However, the Reds remain hopeful of tying the Egyptian down to a new deal soon.
And former United midfielder Scholes, told The Overlap he believes Salah has to stay put if he wants to be the best player in the world.
“They (Barca and Madrid) are not in as high esteem as they once were. I think if he wants to be the best player on the planet, he has to stay at Liverpool. He has to stay in England,” Scholes told The Overlap when discussing Salah.
“I think it’s got the best players. It’s got the three best coaches in the world. With the best teams. So if he wants to be the best player on the planet, he has to stay. And Liverpool have to pay him.”
Scholes’ ex-Man United teammate disagreed and believes that Salah will, one day, leave the club. The Sky pundit tipping the likes of those clubs mentioned to come in, with Madrid the team Neville believes will entice the Liverpool man.
TBR’s View: Scholes right on Salah but lure could still come
The big issue for Liverpool when it comes to Salah is what has he got left to achieve at Anfield? Obviously, winning the title back this year is a huge deal.
But beyond that, he’s done everything he can. Golden Boots, league titles, Champions Leagues, and breaking the 100 goal mark. Realistically, what else can Salah achieve?
Scholes is right in that Liverpool should try and keep him. And he’s right about the league being great. But for Salah personally, there might be other objectives to achieve elsewhere.
