Liverpool legend Ian Rush believes Mohamed Salah will not be leaving the club any time soon, despite links with Real Madrid and Barcelona. Salah has been key to Liverpool’s success in recent seasons, having netted an impressive 118 goals in 186 appearances in all competitions so far.
As a result, the 28-year-old has been linked with a move to Real or Barcelona but Rush believes Salah will stay put.
Speaking to HorseRacing.net, Rush outlined the reasons why, explaining that the supporters “love him”, “he loves the fans” and that no other league offers the same challenge as the Premier League.
“I think Liverpool has a broad appeal,” he said.
“Teams like Barcelona and Real Madrid have the history, same as with Liverpool and Manchester United, and for him to be linked to any of those clubs means that he is one hell of a player but for me I think Mo Salah will stay at Liverpool.

“The fans love him, he loves the fans.
“The Premier League is the hardest and the most demanding league in the world.
“When you look at Barcelona and Real Madrid, Juventus and Milan in Serie A, where else do you get a league where the bottom team beats the top, like Sheffield United beating Manchester United?
“That could only happen in the English Premier League.”

Rush has also backed Thiago Alcantara to start producing his best, adding: “He’s a world class player. Full stop. When he first came into the side, especially against Everton away, I thought he was fantastic.
“I think having a few injuries has not helped him. I think he’s coming back and slowly maybe taking a little bit of time to get used to the English Premier League.
“But for me, he’s a world class player and he will adapt for Liverpool. I’m pretty certain of that. It just maybe changes the dimension a bit in the midfield but I would have him in my team all day long.”
He also believes Liverpool can still retain the Premier League title this season, despite being 13 points behind league leaders Manchester City.
“I’m not saying it’s not going to be very difficult but yes they can [win the league],” Rush said.
“This is the English Premier League, anyone can beat anyone and that’s why it’s the best league in the world. Anything can change with two or three wins.
“It’s a matter of Liverpool getting back into winning ways, and once they do that, anything can happen. This Premier League season is going to be one of the closest in a long time.
“Manchester City are rightly favourites, also given their win against Liverpool but I think it’s going to be one hell of a battle for the top four.”
