Fabrizio Romano Praises Liverpool Owners For Major Decision

Journalist Fabrizio Romano has heaped praise on Liverpool owners Fenway Sports Group for negotiating Mohamed Salah’s long-term contract.

The Egyptian put pen to paper on a three-year deal with the Reds which will see him earn £350,000 per week plus performance-related bonuses.

This came after a year of negotiations in which both parties failed to come to an agreement.



Romano said: “Let me say that this is like a new signing for Liverpool, because he was out of contract in summer 2023.

"But Liverpool, with their owners and with a really good salary to Mo Salah, he’s going to be among the five [or] six best-paid players in the world, and this is how Liverpool did it."

“[They changed] the situation after Sadio Mane [left] the club."

"But then signing fantastic players like Darwin Nunez, fantastic talents like Fabio Carvalho – I love him – and Calvin Ramsay, and then extending Mo Salah’s contract during the summer."

“It is really important because they were facing a problem with Mo Salah maybe to have the player out of contract during the whole season, and they resolved the problem."

"They reached an agreement. Mo Salah stays at Liverpool for three years, congrats to Liverpool.”

FSG have come under criticism in recent years for being reluctant to move away from their Moneyball, wage structure-based model which has earned them success with both the Reds and the Boston Red Sox.

Yet Salah seemed to have bucked the trend, having been an integral part of Jurgen Klopp’s success at Liverpool, winning six trophies and three Golden Boot awards.


He joined from Roma in 2017 for an initial £34m and has bagged 159 goals in 234 matches for the Reds, including the opener in the 2019 UEFA Champions League final. 

He is only 11 goals away from becoming the Liverpool's all-time leading Premier League goalscorer, a record set by Robbie Fowler in his time as a Red.
