Ramy Abbas Issa has taken to his Twitter account to dismiss speculation that his client, Mohamed Salah, could leave Liverpool if the club fails to qualify for next season’s Champions League.
Liverpool have been poor this season by their very high standards, but their current situation could be down to several factors, including injuries.
Jurgen Klopp’s side are seventh in the Premier League table, nine points behind fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur but with two games in hand.
The Reds must find a way to return to their sparkling best to catch up with the top four. They are not far away, and stringing a couple of wins together could fire them back into the mix.
The possibility of missing out on Champions League football next season has aroused speculation that Egyptian star Salah could leave the club.
Plans for a major rebuild at the club have also furthered those rumours that suggest Salah could be sacrificed next summer.
However, the 30-year-old’s agent has rubbished the speculation insisting neither he or his client have thought about leaving the club.
“Nonsense,” Abbas Issa tweeted. “This was never discussed or thought about. Not qualifying to the Champions League hasn’t even crossed our minds.”
Liverpool seemed to have got their campaign back on track after posting consecutive league wins over Everton and Newcastle United for the first time since last December.
However, they were quickly brought back down to earth with a humiliating 5-2 defeat against Real Madrid in their Champions League round of 16 first-leg clash at Anfield.
That result was followed by a disappointing goalless draw against Crystal Palace on Saturday night.
Having been knocked out of the FA Cup, barring a miraculous comeback in the tie decider against Madrid at Santiago Bernabeu, it is set to be a trophyless season for Klopp’s side.
Salah signed a new three-year deal with Liverpool last summer. However, if the former Chelsea man decides to leave Anfield, he will not be short on interest.
