Former Liverpool and Real Madrid player Nicolas Anelka has asked Mane and Salah to not leave Anfield for Real Madrid.
He has played for both sides in the past, and speaking from experience, he has advised the front two to stay at Liverpool. Anelka calls Klopp a genius – and rightly so. Klopp has over the past four years put together a fantastic team, with a strong striker team and defensive leads too. Who could ask for more?
Liverpool and Real Madrid are at the same positions now – both reigning champions of their domestic leagues – and both sides are equally strong to be pitted against each other in the Champions League soon.
“It’s an amazing front three,” Anelka told the Liverpool Echo. “I love them all, especially Roberto Firmino because he is the key for Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mané’s success.
“Salah and Mané are ranking in the top five best players in the world right now. They have the quality to play for Real Madrid.
“But today Liverpool can compete with Real Madrid so they don’t need to move. Liverpool is very much the place to be.”
“Jürgen Klopp is a genius,” Anelka added. “I love his work, the way he is with his players and the players he has signed. They’re top-class players.
“They’ll be competitive for many years. Klopp has brought the club back to where it deserves.”
