Roma should have got more money for Liverpool's Mo Salah claims chief

Salah joined Liverpool from Roma in the summer fo 2017, for a fee believed to be in the region of £34 million, and he has been nothing short of sensational thus far, scoring 29 goals and chipping in with eight assists in 34 outings in all competitions.

Roma at the time needed to make a major sale by the end of May in order to ensure they remained Financial Fair Play compliant, so to not sell Salah-or some other major part of their squad-early in the transfer window would have put them at risk of being punished by UEFA. "It's something huge, so I am very happy about it - but I have to carry on and keep looking forward to score many more goals", Salah told Liverpool's official website in an interview on Saturday.

"The front-three are great, but I don't feel that they are necessarily going to continue to do this [score as many goals] for the next two or three years. We don't have players like that".

Egypt winger Ahmed Elmohamady has urged global teammate Mohamed Salah to spend "another season at Liverpool at least".

Molby wrote the following about Salah in his Liverpool Echo column: "I loved Salah's goal". "We have players like Salah and Mane and, although Mane scored a hat-trick against Porto, they are not out-and-out goalscorers". I think everyone knew he was a good player, but to get where he is at the speed he's done - it's frightening.

Although Salah was upstaged by three-goal Mane on the night, he said he is constantly working on improving his game.

Liverpool are now third in the Premier League, and welcome West Ham to Anfield in their next match.
