Mo Salah turned down Madrid’s offer to stay at Liverpool in 2018
According to former Egypt assistant Hany Ramzy, Mohamed Salah turned down Real Madrid’s offer to stay at Liverpool in 2018. The forward has been involved with a move away from Anfield during his goal-filled time at the club. With Madrid and Barcelona usually reporting as interested parties. Ramzy said the Spanish giants indeed made a “really good” offer to sign Salah. But that the striker had decided he was happy at Liverpool. When Hany was working with Hector Cuper, they had a training camp in Switzerland in March 2018. Hany told reporters: “I talked with Salah, and he told me that Real Madrid sent him an offer”. The offer was excellent, but Salah discussed this with Mr. Cuper and me, and he chooses to stay with the Reds because he was comfortable there.”
The problem on Salah was a “Masterstroke”
Ramzy was not appointed assistant manager until Cuper was replaced by Javier Aguirre. But said he was in a training camp to support the squad. The offer would have come a few months before Salah and Liverpool faced Real Madrid in the Champions League final in Kyiv. Madrid won 3-1 after goals from Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale. Still, the match was overshadowed by Salah’s early injury. Who left in tears with a dislocated shoulder after a challenge from Sergio Ramos. Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini said that, in his opinion, the problem on Salah was a “masterstroke” from Ramos. With Liverpool’s attack considerably reduced for the rest of the final.
However, Mo returned to fitness in time for the World Cup later that summer. He scored Egypt’s just two goals in the tournament as they finished the group without a point. Salah is undoubtedly a crucial player in Egypt, and he is keen to rely on the single runners-up medal he won at the Africa Nations Cup in 2017. “Salah is ambitious. He told us that he wants to win AFCON three times in a row, as Egypt did in 2006, 2008 and 2010,” Hany added. Salah is currently bargaining to become the first Egyptian player to win the Premier League and will be anxiously awaiting whether the league season in England will be completed.
