In the hours that followed the Liverpool match against Norwich, Liverpool fans wrote, on social media many phrases of praise for their favorite star, to the point that one of them said that the Egyptian winger surpassed the Argentine Lionel Messi, the star of Paris Saint-Germain and the best player in the world for 2021.
One fan tweeted “I’m taking mo salah over prime Messi.” Another tweeted “MO Salah is the Premier League’s MESSI!.”
A Liverpool fan called on the club’s management to renew Salah’s contract. Another fan expects Salah to win the 2022 FIFA Ballon d’Or award.
Mohamed Salah’s contract with Liverpool expires in the summer of 2023, and the future of the Egyptian King looks ambiguous at Anfield, amid news that the club’s management has refused the financial demands of the player’s agent.
