Klopp on Salah transfer
Jurgen Klopp has responded to Egypt manager Javier Aguirre’s claims that Mohamed Salah may have to leave the club if they don’t win silverware.
“I would say if he doesn’t win a title in the next two years then he has to move to another club or country,” he said. “I don’t know why people say things like that. It’s not that important.
“It’s a world of media, you find it somewhere in any Egyptian newspaper and the next one is writing it and I got confronted with it.
“Obviously I don’t agree with that but it’s a free world so he can say whatever he wants.”
