'Because he's African' - El Haji Diouf speaks on Mo Salah's Liverpool contract saga


Former Liverpool winger El Hadji Diouf has appeared to have continued his feud with his former employers over alleged poor treatment of him during his days at the club

The Senegalese has this time sent a message to Liverpool over Mohamed Salah's contract and in turn criticised the club in a controversial way.

Salah's current contract expires in 2023 and so far no agreement has been reached between Liverpool and the player to extend his stay beyond next summer. Negotiations have been drawn out and links with clubs across Europe, including Juventus, Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City, are starting to emerge.

Diouf, who made 80 appearances and scored six goals for the Reds between 2002 and 2005, has warned Salah he will "have to start all over again" if he was to join another European heavyweight at this stage of his career.

The former Senegal international has urged the Egyptian to stay put but controversially claimed he shouldn't expect the deal he deserves because he is African.

"It is obvious that Liverpool must accept Salah 's demands," he told beIN Sports. "If I were Salah, I would stay at Liverpool, he can make more money, he is the best player at the club with (Sadio) Mane, and with him they will win a lot of trophies

"He's 30 years old, and I'm asking him to play four more years with the Reds. A transfer to Real Madrid will mean he will have to start all over again."

"Salah has to realise that he is African, so they will not treat him like the Europeans, and they will not give him the best contract like the others.

"The same thing happened to me when I was at Liverpool, they told me not to go to my country to play with my national team."
