Mohamed Salah's Ex-Teammate Claims Player Is Unhappy At Liverpool

If you were to look at his recent form, you think it would be fairly safe to assume that Mohamed Salah is enjoying life at Anfield at the moment.

Liverpool are currently top of the league, with Salah leading the Premier League goalscoring charts with 13 goals. While he was given a rest in Saturday's 7-0 over Crystal Palace, he would come off the bench to net a brace and extend his scoring run to five consecutive games.

In all, it has been a brilliant season for the 28-year old thus far.

However, he may not be as happy at Liverpool as one would think. That is according to a former teammate of his, who claims that Salah told him that he was not happy with life at Anfield at the minute.

Speaking to beIN Sports, former Egypt international Mohamed Aboutrika claimed that Salah told him in a recent phone call that he is 'upset' with the way things are going at Liverpool.

Aboutrika mentioned a recent interview Salah gave to Spanish publication AS as an example, where the player said he he was unhappy that he wasn't made captain for the recent Champions League game in Midtjylland and that he would not rule out a move to Barcelona or Real Madrid in the future.

Aboutrika, who played alongside Salah at international level for a number of years, said the player is currently angry amidst rumours Liverpool could look to sell him in the not too distant future.

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 was that he was not the captain against Midtjylland.

If Salah was a player at Real Madrid or Barcelona, and playing at the same level as Liverpool, he would've won the Ballon d'Or, and it is normal for a Spanish newspaper to ask Salah about Real Madrid and Barcelona.

In my opinion, Liverpool are considering selling Salah for economic purposes. I do not have any influence over Salah's decisions, he is my friend and brother, and he is smart enough to know what is best for him.

Salah's current Liverpool contract runs until the summer of 2023, meaning there will only be two years left on his deal after this season.

The club are likely to attempt to tie him down to a long-term contract, but the player does have some bargaining power should he really want to move elsewhere.
