Nicolas Anelka thinks Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane should stay at Liverpool rather than move to Real Madrid as it’s “the place to be”.

Both Salah and Mane have been linked with a move to the Spanish giants in the past with their reputations taking off over the last three or four seasons.

Liverpool have won the Premier League and Champions League in the past two seasons, while Jurgen Klopp is widely recognised as one of the best managers in the world and Anelka has questioned why anyone would want to leave.

OPINION: Bielsa, Klopp and Pep are bonkers champions…

Speaking to the Liverpool Echo, Anelka said: “It’s an amazing front three.

“I love them all, especially Roberto Firmino because he is the key for Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane’s success.

“Salah and Mane 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.”

On the club’s title triumph, Anelka added: “The players can be proud after 30 years of waiting

“It’s a shame it had to come at the same time as this coronavirus so they won’t be able to celebrate with the fans like they should. But it’ll do.

“Jurgen Klopp is a genius. 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.”
