‘Salah is the most selfish player I have ever witnessed’, says Liverpool legend

Liverpool legend Graeme Souness claims that Mohamed Salah is the ‘most selfish player’ he has ever seen. 

The Egyptian has been in the headlines since his touchline spat with manager Jurgen Klopp during the 2-2 draw at West Ham United. 

The 31-year-old was apparently furious with Klopp for dropping him to the bench for the second time in a week and expressed his anger before he was brought on at the London Stadium. 

The recent incident has fueled speculation that Salah could leave Anfield in the summer transfer window amid interest from the Saudi Pro League. 

Liverpool have made it clear that they expect their star forward to stay, but Souness believes otherwise. 

Speaking to the Three Up Front podcast, he claimed Salah is the ‘most selfish player’ he has ever seen. 

“I believe Mohamed Salah is off and leaving Liverpool,” Souness said. He has been fabulous for Liverpool, but if he leaves to the Saudi Pro League then he’ll be the biggest star in that part of the world.

“He no doubt has an exceptionally large opinion of himself, and he’ll have been angry at not starting the game against West Ham last week.

“I think the situation with Jurgen Klopp was a reaction to only being brought on with 10 minutes to go – it was more Salah than it was Klopp in that confrontation.

“Salah is the most selfish player I have ever witnessed. Even prior to that game, whenever Klopp takes him off, he is never happy about it.”
