Jurgen Klopp has shown Mo Salah how to renew a contract but one former Red wants the focus to now be on Sadio Mane.
Speaking on BBC Radio 5 Live’s Football Daily podcast, Jose Enrique shared his thoughts on our No.10: “Sadio sometimes doesn’t seem happy because I think everyone just focuses at the moment on Salah, Salah, Salah and his contract.
“Sadio Mane is actually in the same situation as Salah. He has one year left.
“I believe he is showing up every single week and playing as a striker which is one position he is not used to.
“For a few weeks he has scored every single week, he is performing really well, assisting as well.
“He is a player that I believe Liverpool should focus on renewing his contract as soon as the season finishes and someone that still brings a lot to the team in whatever position he plays. He is still a world-class player.”
It has been almost fully forgotten that it’s not just our No.11 whose contract ends at the conclusion of the next season, there’s the Senegalese winger, Bobby Firmino, Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain too.
It’s not the club who have made these noises, it’s been much more in the media, but you could understand why the others may start to feel frustrated.
We still have time and all those players have the added boost of seeing our manager extend his stay at the club too, let’s hope this summer sees plenty more renewals from our best players!
