McManaman on Salah demands: ‘I don’t think Liverpool should pay it’

Steve McManaman has urged Liverpool not to cave into Mo Salah’s huge reported salary demands as he doesn’t think the club should “pay any player that much in wages”.

There have been rumours over the past couple of seasons that Salah is a target for Real Madrid and Barcelona, while French club Paris Saint-Germain have been linked more recently.

The Egypt international still has a deal until June 2023 but Liverpool have recently entered talks with the aim of extending his current deal at Anfield.



claimed that Salah had demanded a huge £500,000-a-week contract to remain at Liverpool.

Salah is currently on a deal worth around £200,000 a week and former Liverpool winger McManaman doesn’t think the Reds should be paying anyone that kind of money.

McManaman told HorseRacing.net: “I don’t think Liverpool would pay any player that much in wages. It’s hard to comment on topics like these as there’s possibly five different publications publishing five different sets of figures, but if there’s any truth in the £500,000-a-week demand then I don’t think Liverpool should pay it.

“Regarding the links with Salah to PSG, then most people would think that Ligue 1 is a step down from the Premier League wouldn’t they? Kylian Mbappé won’t be there next season and if it’s a couple of years down the line then maybe Lionel Messi won’t be there either.

“Salah would be almost guaranteed success by winning the French league and the French Cup but Ligue 1 is certainly a lesser competition than the Premier League and that seems to hinder PSG in the Champions League.”

In August, former England international Trevor Sinclair took a different view to McManaman, claiming Salah should be paid whatever it takes to tie him down to a new deal.

Sinclair said: “He is a great player and a great goalscorer and unless Liverpool want to risk losing him, they’ve got to give him top dollar.

“Because I feel he deserves it. I think he’s their best player, I really do. We’re talking about Liverpool, so the top earner at Liverpool would be Van Dijk, he’s got to be superseding that.

“He’s a goalscorer, it’s much more difficult to score goals than it is to do anything else on a football pitch and he does that easily.”

Wenger admits feeling responsible for injury-plagued duo

Arsene Wenger has revealed his feeling of responsibility for the injury-stricken careers of two former Arsenal stars, Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere.

The former Arsenal boss gave many opportunities to youngsters during his tenure in north London, but perhaps two of the most highly regarded to break through were Ramsey and Wilshere.

The Wales international currently finds himself at Juventus, and whilst playing for one of the most prestigious clubs in the world on big wages might not seem like the worst thing, the midfielder struggles for regular game time as a result of recurring injury problems.

Wilshere on the other hand is currently without a club after leaving Bournemouth at the end of last season. The 29-year-old enjoyed a good run of games for the Cherries last year but is yet to find a home for the new season.


Five players who shouldn’t be their club’s highest earners


Now Wenger, who is currently in the news for his idea of a biennial World Cup, has admitted feeling responsible for how the duo’s careers have panned out.

Speaking to The Telegraph ), Wenger said. “I see more positivity. Before there was more kicking and I must say the media allowed that. The VAR has brought more respect for the offensive game.

“Sometimes the more technical guys were kicked. Why? It was not very encouraging. We have moved forward from that.

“We (Arsenal) always tried. It was a frustration sometimes. When I look back at players like (Jack) Wilshere, (Aaron) Ramsey who have been injured early in their career and when you are a manager you feel very responsible for that.”

Wenger, currently serving as FIFA’s Chief of Global Football Development, also revealed

When asked if 2016 was the last time the Football Association came calling, he said: “Yes, I think so.”

The Frenchman also praised current manager Gareth Southgate, saying he “likes” the 51-year-old.
