Jamie Carragher tells Mo Salah ‘what he needs to remember’ in Liverpool standoff

Jamie Carragher has warned Mohamed Salah that leaving Liverpool would be a grave error amid the Egyptian King's contract standoff.

The Reds ace, 29, is still yet to pen a new deal at Anfield with reports that talks collapsed in December.

Salah is still keen to stay at the Premier League high-flyers but is unwilling to lower his terms, claiming he is not "asking for crazy stuff".

However, Jurgen Klopp has insisted the club "cannot do much more" in terms of meeting Salah's demands, with The Mirror reporting that the world-class winger is demanding a salary of €400k-a-week (£336,000).

And while still firmly of the belief that Salah will extend his stay, Reds legend Carragher has warned that leaving Anfield hasn't always worked out for previous stars.

"I think he'll end up signing a contract," said Carragher as part of co-host Gary Neville's Instagram live following Monday Night Football.

"I'm not totally worried about the situation, to be honest. I think he will sign because of the situation at all these other clubs. The players they're signing, I think they're looking at [Erling] Haaland and [Kylian] Mbappe – younger players than Salah.

"I think Liverpool is one of the best teams in Europe and Salah has played his best football here and that's obviously what Mo Salah has still got to remember."

In recent seasons Philippe Coutinho and Gini Wijnaldum have both traded Anfield for pastures new but neither has been able to replicate previous form at their new clubs.

Coutinho flopped at Barcelona as their club-record signing and was flogged to Aston Villa in the January Transfer Window.

While Wijnaldum and new club PSG exited the Champions League in shock fashion to Real Madrid last week.

Now Carragher has advised Salah to use their experiences to make sure he doesn't make the same mistake.

"He has been brilliant for Liverpool but Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool have been brilliant for him and players have left Liverpool in the last few years," continued the former Reds defender.

"Look at Wijnaldum now at PSG, he's on the bench. Now I'm not saying that would happen to Mo Salah but I don't think the Mo Salah we're seeing at Liverpool we'd see anywhere else."
