Liverpool officials are worried about breaking their well structured wage bill to accommodate a new contract for Salah, but former Premier League star Warnock believes that the player’s status as a global icon plus the commercial boom from him will cancel out any concerns that the 29-year-old won’t live up to his wage demands.

Former Liverpool defender Stephen Warnock has called on the Reds manager Jurgen Klopp to drop Senegalese winger Sadio Mane as the player has been off-form lately and does not deserve a starting spot in the team for now.
Mane has not been in the best of form recently and has been barren for his side this season even when they have needed him the most. He continued his poor form of the campaign against Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid in the first leg of the UEFA Champions League clash between the two sides that was played at the Alfredo Di Stefano stadium.

According to him, Newcastle United won’t suffer relegation at the end of the Premier League this season as the Magpies don’t look like a team that won’t beat the drop in the English top flight this season. Stephen Warnock talked about the Magpies and the relegation zone while he was doing his punditry job with the BBC last weekend. Stephen Warnock was on duty as Manchester United beat Newcastle United 3-1 last weekend. For the former Liverpool and Blackburn Rovers defender, Newcastle United gave a good account of themselves during the Manchester United game and that theyhave too much quality to drop down to the second tier of club football in England, the English Championship.
Former Premier League player Stephen Warnock has shared lovely memories of Gerard Houllierwho passed away at the age of 73 at the start of this week. Stephen Warnock was on Sky Sports on Monday to talk about the Frenchman and the impact that he had on his Liverpool career.
Former Liverpool defender Stephen Warnock
believes Andrew Robertson is arguably the best left-back in the world at the
present point of time. The Scotland international has been a revelation since
the £8m move to Anfield from Hull City and last season, he was exceptional with
13 assists across all competitions for the Reds.
Speaking to the club’s official website,
Warnock said that he has been impressed with the progress of both Robertson and
Trent Alexander-Arnold over the past year. He added to reserve special praise
for Robertson stating that the Scot has been able to make the difference in an
attacking point of view without leaving any gap at the back for the opposition
He said: “Both Andy and Trent on the other
side had incredible seasons. I think last season with the protection that Andy
got from the midfielders, whether that be Fabinho, James Milner, Gini Wijnaldum
or Jordan Henderson, he knew he was able to make those runs forward without
leaving gaps behind him. When he is going forward, the quality of delivery he
possesses is brilliant. Your modern day full-back can often attack, but can he
defend? Robbo can do both comfortably and for me, and I’ve said it before, he
is arguably the best left-back in the world at the moment.”
Liverpool managed to win the Champions
League during the previous campaign and that meant that they ended a seven-year
wait for a trophy. However, the Reds could not celebrate Premier League success
after finishing one point behind eventual champions Manchester City but they
have the chance to give it another go during the forthcoming campaign.
Sky Sports pundit Stephen Warnock has backed Mohamed Salah to find his scoring form as Liverpool embark on the final two months of the Premier League campaign. The Egypt international has failed to score in eight successive games for the Reds this year, but that has recently generated concerns regarding his form in the run-in.
Speaking on Sky Sports, Warnock acknowledged that Salah is not enjoying the best of runs with the Mersey side outfit after going more than 50 days without scoring for them. However, the former Liverpool man revealed that the attacker has still been impressive with the link up play alongside Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino and he should find the scoring touch in due course.
