The former Arsenal goalkeeper has pleaded with the Egypt international to take his next move seriously.
Mohamed Salah should remain at Liverpool, according to Rami Shaaban, a former Arsenal goalkeeper who believes the sought-after attacker would be better off sticking there.
Salah has had a fantastic run of success at Anfield since signing from AS Roma, most recently helping Jurgen Klopp’s side win the Champions League in June 2019.
Success in the Uefa Super Cup and Fifa Club World Cup followed, and a record-breaking Premier League championship victory brought an end to a 30-year quest for top-flight success.
Additionally, the Egypt international has been the major supplier of goals for Liverpool, scoring 125 goals in 203 appearances in all competitions.
Salah, despite losing the Premier League Golden Boot to Harry Kane, has plenty of admirers, but Shaaban believes Salah should stay with the six-time European winners.
“It is in Salah’s best interests to remain at Liverpool,” Shaaban told OnTime Sport TV, according to Kingfut.
“Liverpool supporters adore Salah. I want Salah to stay with the club even if he is offered a contract by Paris Saint-Germain, since the competition in England is tougher than in France.
“The situation will change in one instance, namely if he receives an offer from a team in Spain’s La Liga, specifically Real Madrid or Barcelona.”
Shaaban, who was chosen by the Gunners to replace David Seaman, hoped the 28-year-old had paired up with the Emirate Stadium giants as well.
“I wish Salah had joined Arsenal prior to joining Chelsea; Salah’s style is perfect for Arsenal,” he continued.
Salah remains a tremendously popular figure at Anfield, despite having left the door open to a move, with fans voting him the club’s Player of the Season.
The Pharaohs captain expressed his joy at collecting the honor, while he acknowledged that Klopp’s squad fell short of the desired quality during the 2020-21 season.
Salah told the club’s official website: “Of course, I’m happy to win this award, especially because it’s fan-voted, but winning our final games and qualifying for the Champions League was the most important thing.”
“I believe I have performed reasonably well this season, but it is not about me; it is about the team. I believe that if we had the supporters at the stadium, our position, our scenario, would have been much better for us as a team. We suffered greatly this season due to the absence of our supporters.
“So I am pleased that in the final game of the season, we were able to play in front of our fans. It was wonderful to see them return to the stadium.”
