Former Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren has endorsed Mohamed Salah to remain at the club despite rumors linking him to a departure from Anfield.
Speculation linking the Egyptian to a Bayern Munich signing was spurred by chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge this week, who said it would be “ an honor ” if Salah joined the Bavarians.
The 28-year-old has hinted at his desire to play. for the likes of Barcelona or Real Madrid.
But Lovren, who remains close friends with his former teammate despite moving to Zenit St Petersburg, feels that Salah might even see his career with Liverpool.
“I’m still in communication with Mo Salah, “Lovren told talkSPORT on Thursday. We are still the best of friends, even outside of football, and we talk about everything.
“Individually, when he looks at the amount of goals he’s scored, he’s doing incredible right now.Mo is in the prime of his football career at 28 years old.
“He Maybe he looks a little older, but he’s at the top of his form, so why doesn’t he stay another four, five, six years?”
Lovren left Liverpool over the summer in search of more regular first-team football, having been lowered to fourth position as central defender, although he would have always been around this season had he stayed because of the injury crisis at the club defence.
On whether he could have done a job for Liverpool this season, Lovren added: “Yes, of course he could do the job, but like I said, do I regret it? No.
“I was there for six years and for four and a half years I had a great time, but the last year and a half was not a good time.
“Did they use me as much as I wanted? No, but I accepted it. I don’t regret leaving as I play every week and now I’m a captain so it’s totally different.”
