Mohamed Salah urged to remain at Liverpool FC amid Real Madrid link
The Liverpool FC star is told Anfield is the best place to continue his current career trajectory
Garth Crooks believes Mohamed Salah would be hard pressed to find a better club than Liverpool FC to play his football.
The Egypt international moved to the Reds in a £39m deal from Serie A giants AS Roma in the summer transfer window despite a difficult spell at Chelsea FC.
The Liverpool FC star hit the ground running with an incredible return of 32 goals in 37 games in the Premier League this season.
Salah surpassed Cristiano Ronaldo, Luis Suarez and Alan Shearer with his 32nd goal of the campaign in a 4-0 win over Brighton and Hove Albion at Anfield last weekend.
The African forward has also netted 10 times in the Champions League to help Liverpool FC reach their first final since 2007.
Salah won the PFA player of the year award following his incredible performances in the current campaign.
Their Champions League final opponents Real Madrid have been linked with a potential bid to sign Salah at the end of the current campaign.
Former Spurs forward Crooks warned Salah to remain at Liverpool FC to continue his career trajectory.
“What this lad has done for Egyptian football, not to mention social cohesion, cannot be quantified,” Crooks told BBC Sport.
“What I can tell you is there is no better place on the planet than Liverpool Football Club to appreciate the talents of Mohamed Salah. He has had the most wonderful season.
“I’m not entirely sure what I have enjoyed more – the striker bearing down on the opposition with such blistering pace and leaving defenders in his wake, or his glorious ice-cool finishes. A chorus of “Mo Salah, Mo Salah, Mo Salah” ringing around Anfield is not far behind, by the way.
“Put that all together and there cannot be a better place on the planet for a player of Salah’s class to play his football.”
Liverpool FC were 7-6 aggregate winners against AS Roma in the Champions League semi-final thanks to Salah’s two goals and two assist.
