Salah Isn't Getting The Attention He Deserves Because He Is Not European [OPINION]

It may irritate some fans because he will undoubtedly be paid more than Virgil van Dijk, Sadio Mane, and the others. But Salah backs it up with numbers. Look at his stats: he's already in the top 10 goal scorers at the club with 131 goals, and he's closing up on Harry Chambers (151) in ninth place, whom he might overtake this season. Of course, I'm prejudiced, but strikers are well worth the investment. Salah is a game-winner.

The greatest thing he can do is sign a five-year contract and cement his place in the club's history. Real Madrid has been sniffing around, but why would he move there in the first place? At this point, there is no club on the globe that he could join that is better than Liverpool. In theory, if he leaves Liverpool for another Premier League club, he would lose all he has created at Anfield. There are no "must-visit" locations in Europe. There are differences between Barcelona and Real Madrid, as well as other aspects with Paris Saint-Germain and the qualities of Ligue 1.

Goal machine' Mohamed Salah as good as Lewandowski, says Jürgen Klopp |  Liverpool | The Guardian

Salah would be desired by anybody. His perseverance is admirable. Salah scores no matter how Liverpool plays. There is no question that he deserves to be respected more. The next big item is constantly on the horizon in society. Everyone is looking for the next Messi or something. They want something fresh and interesting. Salah is similar to Robert Lewandowski in this regard. Why hasn't Lewandowski been awarded the Ballon d'Or yet? How did this happen? Scoring goals is second nature to these men, and they take it for granted.

Liverpool told cashing in on Salah 'now' can unleash two Klopp favourites

Hold on, you've still got giants on your hands. Salah and other players with such attitude leave the field disappointed if they do not score. He'll take that disappointment home with him, no matter how seldom it is right now. When Jermain Defoe didn't score, he was enraged. Rio Ferdinand has told me the same tales about Manchester United's Ruud van Nistelrooy. That is why the top attackers continually put up these absurd figures.

The game has progressed, and the level of defense has improved, yet records are still broken on a regular basis. Men like Salah must be cherished and admired, it's such a shame that their efforts will always be overlooked just for not being European.
