Giving long contracts to players in their late years is usually considered risky. However, Salah’s fitness record should speak for itself in this case. He is already the club’s seventh all-time highest goalscorer despite having only joined the club in 2017.
There are few players better than Salah today in the world. He should also be earning a salary similar to these elite footballers. Mo Salah should feel that he is valued at the club and FSG has to ensure that is the case.
