In his latest feature, James Pearce has commented on those who are calling for Mohamed Salah to be replaced by Jadon Sancho and fans are praising his response.
Transfer talks around the Liverpool camp are ramping up, with Timo Werner and Jadon Sancho both heavily linked to a move to Anfield. Despite Sancho’s hefty price tag of what could reach £187million (via Liverpool Echo), a lot are still convinced the Merseyside outfit will splash the cash and bring in the Dortmund wonderkid.
However, in order to fund the Englishman’s mammoth asking price, many believe cashing in on Salah – who is valued at £135million (Transfermarkt) – will help pay for Sancho to join the club. In his latest feature for The Athletic, Pearce has slammed these comments and thinks that those believing he is dispensable should show him more respect.
In response, it seems that many Kopites are all singing from the same hymn sheet, with one fan saying it would be ‘absolutely crazy’ to sell Salah. Another supporter has said others are ‘delusional’ if they want to make profit off him.
In 10 years time people will look at his numbers and his highlights and think that it's absolutely crazy that people wanted to cash in. We're watching him become an LFC icon before our very eyes.

No real lfc fan would ever suggest selling him. Delusional if so!

What Salah needs is space. He had space in his first season as he was played wide and our midfield was far more creative. Now, he’s played close to the center, which leaves him surrounded by 3, 4 defenders at a time, with no space. With that said, he’s still scoring 20+ a season

And, if he doesn't score, someone else will

Proof is in the stats. Anyone don’t rate him or would sell or swap haven’t a clue.
