Former Liverpool midfielder Don Hutchinson said that Liverpool should consider selling Salah instead of Mane as he believes the Senegalese international is more valuable to the team.

Salah and Mane have had a respectable season with Liverpool as they sat on top of the Premier League table throughout the majority of the season and were handed their first defeat just two weeks before the league’s suspension.

In terms of direct goal contributions, both players are very close with Salah making 28 direct contributions [20 goals, eight assist] compared to Mane’s 27 [16 goals, 11 assists], across the league and the Champions League.

Talking to ESPN Don Hutchinson said that Mane is overall a more valuable to the Reds even though he scored fewer goals than his fellow teammate and believes they should sell the Egyptian.

“I wouldn’t accept £140m for Mane, I wouldn’t, I disagree, I wouldn’t,” Hutchison said.

“They’re the same age but it’s Mo Salah that I watch every single week, and his numbers are astonishing don’t get me wrong and you can’t take that away from Mo Salah, but I think Stevie said a couple of weeks back when we were talking about the Champions League just before the Atletico Madrid game, you watch Mo Salah and the guy does genius things but he does the most basic things so bad it’s untrue.

“He can’t pass a ball five yards, he seems to keep playing this ball where he tries to nutmeg everyone from whatever side he’s on, if he’s coming off the right flank onto his left, tries to play it to a striker through a body of players that’s never, ever on.

“And you watch him and go ‘Surely this has been coached, surely Jurgen Klopp and his coaching staff have tried to coach Mo Salah, and he does the basic things really badly, yet his numbers are frightening and he scores a ridiculous amount of goals in the Premier League and the Champions League.

“So I would disagree, I think if you’re going to sell anyone and you had to sell one – don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t sell any if I was Jurgen Klopp – but if one was to go and you offered Mo Salah for someone like Jadon Sancho, I maybe would take that swap,” he concluded.

The two-time Golden Boot winner is currently the Premier League third top goalscorer with 16 goals, one behind Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and three goals behind leader Jamie Vardy.
