Mohamed Salah 'will not get the contract he deserves because he is African' according to former Liverpool forward El Hadji Diouf.
The Egyptian winger's future at Anfield remains up in the air with his current Liverpool contract set to expire next summer and no new deal agreed as of yet.
Now, former Reds player Diouf has claimed that Salah will not be offered the terms he deserves due to being African, citing his own experiences from his time at the club. Speaking to beIN SPORTS, Diouf explained: "It is obvious that Liverpool must accept Salah's demands.
"If I were Salah, I would stay at Liverpool, he can earn more money, he is the best player at the club along with [Sadio] Mane, and with him together they will win a lot of trophies. He is 29 years old and I ask him to play four more years with the Reds. A transfer to Real Madrid would mean that he would have to start all over again."
However, he later went on to explain that he believes Salah's nationality could impact on the deal he is offered by Liverpool, adding: "Salah must realise that he is African.
"So they will not treat him like the Europeans, and they will not give him the best contract like the others. The same thing happened to me when I was at Liverpool, they were telling me not to go away with my country to play with my national team."

Salah is currently out of contract next summer and has yet to agree a new deal with Liverpool, leading to speculation regarding his future with the club.
He has been increasingly linked with a move away from Anfield due to his stunning form this season, scoring 28 goals and adding 10 assists in 36 appearances in all competitions. Both Juventus and Real Madrid are reportedly interested in a summer move for the 29-year-old, with the former reportedly contacting his agent for talks over a transfer.
