It has always been said that awarding Mo Salah a new contract could cause his Liverpool teammates to act enviously and demand raises for themselves.
The 30-year-old’s possible earnings and the team’s mood were discussed by James Pearce in an article for The Athletic. Pearce said: “There’s definitely no sense of envy among the other senior players in the dressing room.” They have the mentality that he deserves every cent.
Salah was keen to agree to a host of performance-related bonuses linked to high goal and assist targets, showing his confidence in his abilities. He may earn closer to £400,000 per week if they are triggered.
It’s obviously reassuring to know that our fears might not come true and that Jurgen Klopp’s dressing room can recognize this is a special scenario.
There is very little possibility that the Egyptian King will go below expectations during this contract because the bonuses are so heavily involved in the contract and also because he already has a strong work ethic.
We are fortunate to have a fantastic player, a fantastic manager, and a wonderful squad, all of whom are eager to cooperate for the common good.
