Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah seems to be unhappy at Liverpool, Mohamed Aboutrika, former Egyptian teammate explains regarding the forward.
Talking to beIN Sports, Mohamed Aboutrika, former Egyptian teammate of Mohamed Salah dropped a bombshell on the football world by saying that Mohamed Salah is unhappy at Anfield.
Mohamed Aboutrika told beIN Sports:
I called Salah about his situation at Liverpool and he is upset, but that would never affect his performance on the field
I know that Salah is not happy in Liverpool, he told me the reasons why he is not happy but they are secrets and I cannot talk about it in public. One of the reasons that made Salah angry that he was not the captain against Midtjylland.
Trent Alexander Arnold, the right-back of Liverpool, was given the armband ahead of the Egyptian forward in their last Champions League group stage fixture against Midtjylland.
Salah scored a first-minute goal for the Reds at MCH Arena which ended in a draw. VAR denied the winner for them against Midtjylland but they still topped Group D.
In my opinion, Liverpool is considering selling Salah for economic purposes.

Mohamed Aboutrika also believes that the reigning Premier League champions are set to sell their forward due to “economic purposes”, as he put it.
The Reds believe that it is the right time to cash in on the right-winger as the player has hit top form in his career. Mo Salah’s contract runs until the end of the 2022/23 season and is currently valued at €120 million.
Even the Egyptian King was vocal about his future move when he sat down for an interview with the Spanish outlet AS.
Talking to AS, Mohamed Salah opined that he is open to a move to the Santiago Bernabeu or Camp Nou in the near future if the opportunity arises.
He also expressed his concerns over not being the skipper for the club despite joining the outfit in 2017. However, the player remains professional and is only concerned about winning the EPL and UCL titles again with Liverpool.
He said to AS:
I think Madrid and Barcelona are two top clubs. Who knows what will happen in the future, but right now I am focused on winning the Premier League and Champions League with Liverpool again.
When asked about the armband issue at Denmark, the winger said:
Honestly, I was very disappointed, I was hoping to be the captain, but it’s a coach’s decision. I accept it.
Klopp’s reasons for choosing Trent are justifiable because he has been at the club since a youth player (making him the player longest at Anfield) and is a youngster from Liverpool who has now fulfilled his lifelong dream.
Salah started the game against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on the bench. He replaced Sadio Mane in the 57th minute and still bagged a brace.
The Anfield outfit scored seven past Roy Hodgson’s side and are four points clear of second-placed Leicester City in the English Premier League.
A special goal. A special player.
