Barnes thinks that Liverpool’s place in the PL has nothing to do with Salah’s choice.

Following the rumors about


future at the club,


former player

John Barnes

; said that the players’ decision to leave the club or stay has nothing to do with the Reds’ position in the Premier League table.

“No matter where a team finishes in the league, it will never stop a player’s head from turning against them. In the last year, despite Liverpool being Premier League champions, there has been talk of Mohamed Salah leaving the club,”

Reds legend Barnes, speaking in association with BonusCodeBets, has told



“I believe the players currently at Liverpool are players that want to be playing for Liverpool, but if they don’t, winning the league or finishing in the top four, it won’t make them stay - that’s just the nature of modern football.

“There’s talk of Kylian Mbappe leaving PSG, players leaving Real Madrid and players leaving other top teams; Kevin de Bruyne hasn’t signed his contract extension with Manchester City yet, despite the likelihood of him winning the Premier League with them. So, finishing in the top four won’t make Salah want to stay and if they don’t finish in the top four, it won’t make him want to leave.”
