MOHAMED SALAH has told Liverpool to pay him what he’s worth as he negotiates a potential new contract.
The Egyptian superstar’s current deal has 18 months left to run.
Salah, 29, has admitted that he wants to stay at Anfield.
But he feels it’s up to the Reds to stump up what’s worth.
He told GQ Magazine: “I want to stay, but it’s not in my hands. It’s in their hands.
“They know what I want. I’m not asking for crazy stuff.”
For Salah, his relationship with the fans is beyond question.
But his contract is an issue that can only be resolved by club chiefs.
He added: “The thing is when you ask for something and they show you they can give you something, because they appreciate what you did for the club.
“I’ve been here for my fifth year now. I know the club very well.
“I love the fans. The fans love me.
“But with the administration, they have [been] told the situation. It’s in their hands.”
On what drives him, Salah admits that he wants to be recognised as the best player in the world.
He continued: ““If you asked me if this was a drive for me to be here? Yeah, of course.
“I can’t really lie and say honestly I didn’t think about it. No, I think about it.
“I want to be the best player in the world.
“But I will have a good life even if I don’t win [the Ballon d’Or]. My life is OK, everything is fine.”
