Danny Murphy speaks out on Mohamed Salah future at Liverpool after winger dropped Barcelona and Real Madrid transfer hint


Speculation has raged over Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah's future since he addressed the possibility of leaving Anfield for Real Madrid and Barcelona

Salah conducted an interview with Spanish newspaper AS last weekend in which he addressed the possibility of leaving Anfield for a move to Real Madrid and Barcelona.

Since then, despite Salah admitting in the same interview that he wants to "break every record at the club" having moved ahead of Steven Gerrard as Liverpool's top European goalscorer, speculation has been rife that the forward could be assessing his future at the club.

Jurgen Klopp insisted in his press conference on Friday ahead of the weekend Premier League clash with West Brom at Anfield that Salah, who is under contract until 2023, is in a "good moment" at Liverpool.

And former Reds midfielder Danny Murphy believes Liverpool supporters should simply enjoy the star striker and his incredible talents while they can without being fixated on his next move.

"Salah should receive a great reception from the 2,000 fans inside Anfield for Sunday's game at West Brom", Murphy wrote in the Mail .

"If anyone gives him stick because of an interview he gave to Spanish media, they are out of order.

"All Salah did was fail to commit the rest of his career to Liverpool or close the door completely on a move to Barcelona or Real Madrid.

"As a fan, you'd want him to nail his colours to the mast and shoot down any transfer speculation immediately but if you think about it from Salah's point of view, it is understandable.

"He didn't grow up in England, his family may want to live in a warmer climate or different culture. I'd have played forever at Liverpool if I'd been a guaranteed pick like Salah but these days it's normal for players to leave themselves options.

"I always think it is best to judge players by their workrate and performances on the pitch and you cannot fault Salah this season or at any time since he joined the club.

"He is in brilliant goalscoring form and we should focus on that rather than what may or may not happen in the future.

"At the very earliest, Salah will leave in the summer, and even that is far from clear. So let's enjoy him while we can and hope he continues his purple patch so that Liverpool can win the Premier League again and reclaim the Champions League.

"He was only being honest in the interview so don't let it change your view of him as a person.

"It's clear he doesn't like being substituted and was cross that he was overlooked as captain for the last European game in Denmark. Good.

"For me, it shows someone who has pride and passion. It tells you someone who cares. I don't see that as a fault."
