Mohamed Salah rejected an offer from Real Madrid in order to remain at Liverpool in 2018, according to Hany Ramzy.
The forward has been linked with a move away from Anfield with Madrid and Barcelona usually reported as the interested parties.
Ramzy has said Real Madrid indeed made a “really good” offer to sign Salah, but that the forward had decided he was happy with Liverpool.
“When I was working with Hector Cuper, we had a training camp in Switzerland in March 2018” Ramzy told OnTime Sports .
“I was talking to Salah and he told me that Real Madrid had sent him an offer.
“The offer was really good, but Salah discussed it with me and Mr Cuper, and he decided to stay with Liverpool because he was comfortable there.”
Ramzy wasn’t appointed assistant manager until Cuper was replaced by Javier Aguirre.
He said he was at the training camp in order to support the squad.
The offer would have come just months before Mohamed Salah and Liverpool faced Real Madrid in the Champions League final.
Madrid won 3-1 with goals from Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale.
The match was overshadowed by an early injury to Salah, who went off in tears with a dislocated shoulder after a tackle from Sergio Ramos.
Giorgio Chiellini has said he felt the challenge on Salah was a “masterstroke” from Ramos.
Nevertheless, Mohamed Salah returned to fitness in time for the World Cup later that summer.
He went on to score Egypt’s only two goals in the tournament as they crash out in the group stage without a point.
“Salah is ambitious, he said he wanted to win AFCON three times in a row like Egypt did in 2006, 2008 and 2010,” Ramzy added.
Salah is currently bidding to become the first Egyptian player in history to win the Premier League.
He will be anxiously waiting to see whether the league season can be completed in England or not.
