"Unacceptable" - Pundit slams Liverpool for not agreeing a new deal with Mohamed Salah
"Salah could go on a free - that is unacceptable. Liverpool have set the benchmark for how to do business as a football club and they've done it brilliantly," he said.
"But, they've got to get this sorted out because Mo Salah cannot leave that football club on a free."
O'Hara also spoke about Sadio Mane's transfer to Bayern Munich this summer and how the Reds could see a repeat of his situation if they don't tie Salah down to a new deal soon.
"He's going into the final year of his contract, still hasn't signed a new deal, you've seen Mane leave," he said.
"Now they recouped their money with Mane - good bit of business. He'd been at the football club, wanted to go in the end for whatever reasons, which will come out but I'm sure it was down to money."
Anfield Watch Verdict
It has been heavily reported that Salah wants his new deal to be worth in the region of £400k per week, double his current salary.
Liverpool have been successful business-wise because they don't fold over and give in to pressure. If they were to give Salah this ridiculous amount of money, then it opens the door for everyone else to ask for a similar wage.
I'm not saying Salah doesn't deserve £400k per week, but Liverpool can't give him that much, unfortunately.
