Mohamed Aboutrika, one of Egypt's greatest ever players, has revealed that he spoke to his former Egypt team-mate Mohamed Salah about his situation at Liverpool.
Aboutrika told beIN Sports: ‘I called Salah about his situation at Liverpool and he is upset, but that would never affect his performance on the field,
‘I know that Salah is not happy in Liverpool, he told me the reasons why he is not happy but they are secrets and I cannot talk about it in public.
‘One of the reasons that made Salah angry was that he was not the captain against Midtjylland.'
‘If Salah was a player at Real Madrid or Barcelona, and playing at the same level as Liverpool, he would've won the Ballon d'Or, and it is normal for a Spanish newspaper to ask Salah about Real Madrid and Barcelona.'
‘In my opinion, Liverpool are considering selling Salah for economic purposes.
‘I do not have any influence over Salah's decisions, he is my friend and brother, and he is smart enough to know what is best for him.'
