Donald Hutchison back Mohamed Salah sale over Sadio Mane


Former Liverpool midfielder Don Hutchison has tipped Mohamed Salah to leave Liverpool ahead of Sadio Mane

Both Liverpool forwards have continually been linked with move away from Anfield this term with Real Madrid and Barcelona apparently frontrunners to wrap up a deal.

It is undeniable that Liverpool wouldn't want to let loose any of their star forwards in the summer but if they are forced to do so, it should be Mohamed Salah that is leaving instead of Sadio Mane according to Hutchison.

Hutchison, who spent four years at Liverpool as a player, was asked who the Anfield club should offload if they had to in the summer.

In response,  the 48-year-old launched into a scathing attack on Salah’s capability as a footballer.

"I wouldn't [accept £140m for Mane], I wouldn't", Hutchison told ESPN FC

"They're the same age but it's Mo Salah that I watch every single week, and his numbers are astonishing don't get me wrong and you can't take that away from Mo Salah, but when we were talking about the Champions League just before the Atletico Madrid game, you watch Mo Salah and the guy does genius things but he does the most basic things so bad it's untrue.

"He can't pass a ball five yards, he seems to keep playing this ball where he tries to nutmeg everyone from whatever side he's on, if he's coming off the right flank onto his left, tries to play it to a striker through a body of players that's never, ever on.

"And you watch him and go: 'Surely this has been coached, surely Jurgen Klopp and his coaching staff have tried to coach Mo Salah,' and he does the basic things really badly, yet his numbers are frightening and he scores a ridiculous amount of goals in the Premier League and the Champions League.

"So I would disagree, I think if you're going to sell anyone and you had to sell one - don't get me wrong, I wouldn't sell any if I was Jurgen Klopp - but if one was to go and you offered Mo Salah for someone like Jadon Sancho, I maybe would take that swap."
