*Quo vadis is a Latin phrase meaning “Where are you going?”
Mohamed Salah is the tireless engine of Liverpool this year. After another sensational display for “The Reds” against Watford, the Egyptian concreted his name on the top of the scoring charts in England and undoubtedly deserved his place among the candidates for “Golden shoe” and possibly Ballon d’Or.
Definitely, the chances to obtain the most prestigious award in the football’s world are not very high just because the Egyptian forward will have to win something with Liverpool or make a notable presence during the World Club in Russia. Frankly, both things sound more like a fantasy than real goals, since Manchester City needs only 6 points to win the Premier League, the quality of the Egyptian national team is rather mediocre and the battle for the Champions League involves teams like Barcelona, Real Madrid, and Bayer Munich, but certainly Mo Salah will gain some votes on his account in the polls organized by ”France football”.
Houston, we have a problem!
Ironically, his fantastic season can bring serious issues to LFC. Because nowadays football is an extremely profitable industry. The teams work like companies and the players are part of their portfolio. Identically to the business world, if a successful company is not capable of creating new products to satisfy their costumers, it buys already developed brand from another firm. For example, Volkswagen group is a major shareholder of Porshe, Lamborghini, Bentley, Audi, Skoda and etc. In football, the wealthiest clubs buy the best players. Following the logic and the history of the LFC’s transfers, Mohamed Salah is on his way to switch Merseyside soon. Where? To my eye, there are 3 possible stops to him- Real Madrid, PSG, and Barcelona as the most probable one is “Los Blancos” due to their bad season in Premiera division, the aging Ronaldo and the constantly injured Gareth Bale. Of course, Jurgen Klopp would not like the idea to watch his player far away from Anfield and he will try to keep him in the red squad but it is a difficult task if the player is extremely talanted and his name is not Steven Gerrard.
