“You can’t throw that at a man like Salah” – Rio Ferdinand reacts on contract claim about Liverpool superstar
Former Manchester United ace defender Rio Ferdinand has cleared the air on suggestions that the Egypt international Mohamed Salah is at his best for Liverpool because he wants a new contract.
The red’s sensational forward was full of class in Liverpool’s 6-0 defeat against Leeds United, converting two penalties in the match.
He is having a phenomenal campaign that has seen him score 31 goals and provide nine assists in just 30 matches in all competitions. He has done this despite missing over a month of the campaign due to the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.
Some detractors have suggested that Liverpool’s talisman is motivated because he wants to tie down a new deal at Anfield.
However, Ferdinand rubbished such claims and said:”If there are players out there doing that, then you don’t deserve to have a career in this beautiful game we love.
“That’s a disrespect. Your levels should be at the highest all the time. Salah has been on fire for four or five years. You can’t throw that at a man like Salah.”
Mohamed Salah was back among the goals as Liverpool trashed Leeds united 6- 0 on Wednesday night.
The victory saw the Reds extend their winning run to nine consecutive matches in all competitions. In doing so, they also cut Manchester City’s lead in the Premier League to Just 3 points.
