Liverpool news: Mohamed Salah told to help unearth own replacement as young star leaves

Mohamed Salah has been told he should help develop Liverpool’s younger players to ensure the club have a replacement for him when he eventually departs.

The Egyptian forward signed a new contract to keep him at Anfield for another three years this summer, and former Reds striker Stan Collymore says he now wants to see Salah take on a senior role within Jurgen Klopp’s squad. That would mean helping younger players to improve and grow – and Collymore thinks Salah could even help develop his eventual replacement.

It comes as Trent Alexandre-Arnold has sent a goodbye message to his “best mate” at Liverpool after the club’s youngest ever goalscorer Ben Woodburn departed. And Lionel Messi has been told he would not get into Jurgen Klopp’s starting XI.
