Mohamed Salah could have perfect end to Liverpool career as Barcelona eye transfer bid

Published

Mohamed Salah has already cemented his Liverpool legacy, of that there can be no doubt. But leading the Reds to an unprecedented quadruple this season would be a fitting way for the Egyptian to bow out at Anfield.

It remains to be seen where the 29-year-old’s future lies as his contract stand-off rumbles on. Liverpool are yet to offer Salah the deal he evidently craves – one rumoured to include wages around £400,000-a-week – however, it may the case that the club will never be able to satisfy his demands. Especially if a quadruple is completed over the coming months.

Having already won the Champions League, Premier League and League Cup (not to mention the UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup) with the Reds, Salah could be forgiven for aiming his ambitions elsewhere. Although he may currently be at the peak of his powers, at 29, the free-scoring forward must evaluate his career goals.

Salah clearly has – and always will have – an affinity to Liverpool, an unbreakable attachment to the club’s adoring supporters and a legacy which will live long in the club’s illustrious folklore. But he must be pondering what’s in store over the next few years.

Needless to say there is interest abroad and the option to embark on a new challenge elsewhere. Barcelona appear increasingly intent on luring the Egyptian to the Spanish capital, while the likes of Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus and Real Madrid are also believed to be keeping a watchful eye over proceedings at Anfield.

Salah must acknowledge there is an opportunity to create history elsewhere – to endear himself to a different fanbase, to experience a different culture and to target different aims. But before a new chapter can potentially be written, this current one needs finishing.

With the League Cup already in the cabinet, Jurgen Klopp’s side have three more avenues to pursue this season. The Reds remain well in the hunt to land at least one of the Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup, however you wouldn’t put it past them to scoop all three.

Should they do so, don’t be surprised to see Salah say his Anfield farewells. The forward has played an integral role in the Liverpool’s renaissance over recent years and few could begrudge him for moving on should he seek to head elsewhere if history is made in the form of all four honours this season.

Perhaps even lifting the FA Cup to complete the silverware set would be enough to signal the end of Salah’s Liverpool stint and see him chase some dreams of a different kind. Having said that, the striker has himself previously stated his desire to remain at Anfield so there’s every chance that’s where he’ll be next season. Only time will tell.

One thing is for sure though: winning the quadruple would be a fitting end to Salah’s formidable Liverpool love affair.

Ruud van Nistelrooy makes next job decision as Man Utd plan coaching appointment

That decision failed to pay off, however, with the Red Devils sacking Moyes after just 10 months in charge.

After the current West Ham boss came Van Gaal, who arrived with big things expected due to his past success at the likes of Barcelona and Ajax.

Giggs was hoping to get the Red Devils job himself, which was why he stayed, but both ended up leaving nearly six years ago.

When Jose Mourinho took over, he opted to maintain his close relationship with Rui Faria – who had previously worked under him at clubs such as Real Madrid and Chelsea.

Fair departed in the summer of 2018, though, with Michael Carrick then given a place on Mourinho’s bench.

Carrick stayed to work under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, with the Norwegian also regularly picking up the thoughts of Phelan and Kieran McKenna throughout his spell in the dugout.

High cholesterol: Blood pressure drug linked to significant reduction in good cholesterol

“Though they’re commonly used to treat different forms of heart disease, beta-blockers can significantly reduce HDL levels.”

Among the beta-blockers that cause this are Corgard (nadolol), Inderal (propranolol), Tenormin (atenolol), Zebeta (bisoprolol).

These drugs are widely used in the treatment of angina, heart failure, atrial fibrillation, heart attack and high blood pressure.

But despite concerns about their effect on cholesterol, scientists stress that the benefits of beta-blockers far outweigh the risks.

VeryWell Health adds: “If your beta-blocker affects your cholesterol significantly, your doctor may lower your dose or switch you to a different medication.”

Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez not on same page over Saudi Arabia GP after missile attack

Published

However, after a four-hour meeting between race officials and the teams, it was confirmed the race would go ahead despite the attack. It had been reported that a number of the competing drivers were concerned for their safety following the nearby explosion.

Despite this, an agreement was finally reached to race at 2:30am local time, after team chiefs left the lengthy meeting to confirm: “We will be racing.” A statement from Formula 1 confirmed Sunday’s race would go ahead as planned. It read: “Formula 1 has been in close contact with the relevant authorities following the situation that took place today. The authorities have confirmed that the event can continue as planned and we will remain in close contact with them and all the teams and closely monitor the situation.”

Unsurprisingly, there were a number of mixed views on whether the race should go ahead, and this is clearly apparent in the Red Bull setup. This comes after advisor Helmut Marko revealed that drivers Verstappen and Perez are not on the same page when it comes to racing.

On the issue, Marko told Sky Germany: “Max is a bit more relaxed about it. Perez is a little bit scared, but when you live in Mexico City there’s not much more security. We have the pandemic, we have the war in Europe and now we have a missile attack 20 kilometres away. This is no longer normal or pleasant.”

Ahead of tomorrow’s race though, the Austrian advisor is firmly on the side of Verstappen and the race officials, supporting the idea of the race taking place. He commented: “I really think it’s the right thing to do. As I said, these drone attacks are common, I think. They have a very good defence system. Why this one didn’t work remains to be seen. It’s not the first drone, after all. But it’s the first one to strike on such a scale.”

The attack took place during Friday’s first practice session, and it was Red Bull’s star man Verstappen who was one of the first to realise something was wrong after reporting on his team radio that he could ‘smell burning’. Initially, the Dutchman thought the smell was coming from either his or one of his rival’s cars, however it then became clear that an explosion had taken place just a few miles from the track.

Giving an insight into Verstappen’s initial worries, Marko said: “Max radioed us, he thought his car had caught fire because there was an intense burning smell. We were informed a drone had been sent from Yemen. The Saudis have a defence system and for some reason the drone was not intercepted.”
