Mohamed Salah is not happy with Liverpool and the Premier League giants are considering selling the star, according to his former teammate in Egypt Mohamed Aboutrika.
Salah, who has starred since arriving at Anfield in 2017, refused to rule out a move to Real Madrid or Barcelona during a recent interview with AS.
The forward also said he was disappointed that he was not named captain of Liverpool’s Champions League clash against Midtjylland earlier this month.
Aboutrika, who played 100 games for Egypt, said Salah was not happy with Liverpool.
“I called Salah about his situation in Liverpool and he is upset, but that would never affect his performance on the pitch,” he told beIN SPORTS.
“I know Salah is not happy in Liverpool, he told me the reasons why he is not happy but they are secret and I cannot talk about that in public. One of the reasons Salah was furious is that he was not the captain against Midtjylland. “
A special goal. A special player.

Salah joined Liverpool from Roma for £ 36.9 million (€ 42 million) in mid-2017.
Aboutrika believes the Premier League champions are thinking of selling out the 28-year-old forward.
“In my opinion Liverpool is considering selling Salah for financial reasons,” he said.
Salah has scored 110 goals in 173 games for Liverpool, including 16 in 21 this season.
He has helped the club win the Premier League, the Champions League, the UEFA Super Cup and the Club World Cup.
