Nicolas Anelka has urged Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane to
spurn the advances of Real Madrid, arguing that “Liverpool is very much
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

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.”
