Jurgen Klopp has said he can not understand why any player would want to leave Liverpool, but adds that he can not force anyone to stay if he wants to leave the club.
Mohamed Salah has been at the center of transfer speculation with Real Madrid, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain all linked with his services.
Indeed, the 28-year-old left the door open for a future move to Spain, while also expressing his disappointment that he did not become Liverpool captain in the Champions League match against Midtjylland.
According to Goal.com, The Reds are confident of offering Salah a new contract at some point, with his current deal until 2023, and the Egyptian striker has said he is fully focused on his goal of breaking records at Anfield.
Speculation will surely continue with the opening of the January transfer window, but Klopp, who also addressed concerns about Salah’s captain’s tape – believes the former Roma star has everything he needs at Merseyside.
“We can all ask for something else if we want to, but for me the only reason to leave Liverpool at the moment is the weather!” Klopp initially said.
“What other reason could there be?” This is one of the biggest clubs in the world. We pay money, maybe not the most in the world, but we pay well, we have a sensational stadium with tremendous fans all over the world. “Our colors are red, which is the best color anyway, so where are the reasons?”
“You can not force people to stay. We never did. It all has to do with time, the right moment. We make changes and bring in players, and if a player wants to go, then we would not stand in the way. “I just do not understand why they would want to,” concluded the Reds coach. / Telegraph /
