Former Arsenal star Paul Merson believes that Liverpool would be better off bidding farewell to Mohamed Salah as opposed to manager Jurgen Klopp.

The German mentor announced that he would be leaving the club at the end of the 2023/24 campaign, ending a successful nine-year spell in Merseyside.

On the back of winning Premier League and UEFA Champions League titles, Merson mentioned that Klopp’s selflessness is priceless after giving his all with the Reds in the last couple of years.

“If you are Liverpool, you’d rather lose Salah than Klopp,” Merson told Sky Sports, as per Liverpool Echo.

“Don’t get me wrong, Salah is one of the best players in the world. He’s arguably the best in his position. However, you just have to see what happened at Wembley on Sunday to see Klopp’s importance to Liverpool. He’s phenomenal.

“You can’t have anything but massive respect for Klopp. He doesn’t care about himself at all. He is just worried about the football club and his team. That is all he is worried about. Having a manager that is only concerned about the club, that is priceless.”
