Souness: “Salah is the most selfish player I’ve seen”


Mohamed Salah’s future is said to be uncertain.
Now icon Graeme Souness predicts how it will end this summer.
– I think Salah will leave Liverpool, he says according to the Daily Mail.

Liverpool star Mohamed Salah, 31, has recently been in the spotlight – after an open confrontation with his departing coach Jürgen Klopp.

At the end of Saturday’s match against West Ham (2-2), Salah was substituted, and in connection with that had an exchange of words with Klopp, where they gestured at each other, something that received a lot of attention afterwards and which has sparked new speculation that the Egyptian possibly may be on his way away from the English big club.

Now Liverpool icon Graeme Souness predicts that Salah will leave this summer.

– I think Salah will leave Liverpool. He has been fantastic for Liverpool, but if he leaves for the Saudi Pro League he will be the biggest star in that part of the world, Souness said according to the English newspaper Daily Mail.

Souness also thinks that Salah is a selfish player, which can also be a good thing.


– He – no doubt – thinks very highly of himself, and he was angry that he didn’t get to start against West Ham. I think the situation last week was about a reaction to him only being allowed to come in with ten minutes left. There was more Salah than Klopp in that confrontation, says the icon and continues:

– Salah is the most selfish player I have ever seen. Even before this game (against West Ham), no matter when Klopp picks him off, he’s never happy about it. It is also what you want from your players. If they have scored two goals, they should want to score three goals.

Salah has mainly been linked with a move to Saudi Arabia, but according to  TheAthletic, Liverpool plan to keep the star winger for several years to come.

Salah joined Liverpool from Roma in 2017, and has since scored 210 goals and 88 assists in 346 appearances, including 24 goals and 13 assists in 41 appearances this season.

Salah’s contract with Liverpool runs until the summer of 2025.
