Jamie Carragher has warned Mohamed Salah that he could ruin his Liverpool “legacy” in a similar vein to Fernando Torres.
The Egypt international is out of contract in 2023 and does not appear to be close to signing a new deal at Anfield.
Salah has been a revelation at Liverpool since joining from AS Roma for £37million in 2017. He has scored 153 goals for the Reds in 241 appearances.
The 29-year-old was asked about his contract situation earlier this week, insisting that it is not right to discuss the matter with Liverpool competing to win an unprecedented quadruple.
When asked what he can reveal about his contract situation, Salah told Sky Sports: “Well not much but honestly, but what I can say is there many things people don’t know about it.
“I can’t be selfish and talk about my situation. We are in the most important period for the team so I have to just talk about the team, focus on what is coming with the team and that is the most important thing.
“That is all I can say. Hopefully we are going to be more optimistic and see what is going to happen.”
Salah has been warned by Liverpool legend Carragher that he could ruin his legacy if he doesn’t sign a new contract at the club.
He believes Anfield is “the best place for him” and has said playing elsewhere could lead to a similar decline, and loss of legacy, to former Reds striker Torres.
“I still think Mo Salah will sign a new contract. Liverpool is the best place for him, he became a superstar at Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp brings out the best in him. It wouldn’t be a sensible move for him to leave,” Carragher told Sky Sports (via the Express).
“The football he’s playing now, he’s playing for one of the best managers in the world, one of the best teams in the world, what he’s done over the last five years makes him one of the best players to ever wear a Liverpool shirt.
“I just think it would be sad if he were to move on, maybe to a rival in this country, he’d lose his legacy at Liverpool. You look at what happened to Fernando Torres going to Chelsea, and I just don’t think it would be great for his career. Where could he go that’s better than Liverpool right now?”
