‘You would do it’ – Arsene Wenger sends Mo’ Salah Liverpool contract message
Former Arsenal Boss Arsene Wenger opens up on Mohamed Salah contract situation, saying the Liverpool star should be given the new contract worth £400k-a-week.
Salah is yet to agree terms on a new deal at Anfield. His current contract is set to expire in the summer of 2023.
Speculations this week suggest Salah and his representatives turned down the offer from the club.
Arsene Wenger, says Liverpool ‘wouldn’t want to lose’ their star player.
“£400k-a-week? Look every situation is differenmo t,” he said on beIN SPORTS.
“You have to look at the medical record of the player. Never misses a game. You would do it.
“It depends as well on the physical qualities. If he’s quick, very quick, and he loses a bit, then he is still quick. If he’s already limited and slow, then you wouldn’t do it.
“Mo Salah, you would do it. He is a mixture of Ronaldo and Messi. He can run with the ball and give the final ball. I think he has improved a lot in giving the final ball.
“From August up until the Africa Cup of Nations, he was certainly the best player in the world. I have seen him score goals this season that are exceptional.
“On his own as well. Salah and Mane, you wouldn’t want to lose them because they become stars with Liverpool. Part of their history now.”
