  • Just been reading one of the daily rags about Sissoko, It says Liverpool are to offer him a double your money deal to stop him being tempted by Barcelona's interest in signing him. Rijkaard seemingly was well impressed with him when they played us in the last round of the CL and Sissok is reportedly top of there list for next season. Double your money sounds nice, as hes getting £15 thousand a week, £30 thousand wouldn't put off Barca, i don't think so anyway, i wonder what other 'first teamer's' earn and is he worth a better deal than £30 thousand a week? before i get the 'they get too much to start off with' I don't disagree but the fact is they get it, so don't bother bringing it up.

    • If that's what Momo is getting then it's a mockery. I wouldn't be surprised if he gets tempted to move to a team that values his contribution. It's not all about praise. Players need to be paid what's commensurate with their contribution. I bet Momo can walk into any good team and get 40k plus a week. I remember the case of Ike Casillas who used to earn 15k when the other players were earning upeards of 70k per week, all because he was not one of the galacticous.

      • Totally agree, Momo should be in the 30-40k brackets. If you look at ex-Chelsea pay structure, I would say the range as follow:

        Keeper - 10-30k per week
        Defenders - 20-50k
        Midfields - 30-100k
        Strikers - 50-120k

        Don't get me wrong for putting the pay for goalkeepers and defenders relatively low, but their career lifes are longer. A keeper only peaks at 32 and can go on to 40; a striker peaks at around 28 and finish his career at 32; midfielders peaks at 26 and finish about the same at 32.

    • Dear Wellboy,

      IF I am him, I will not take it as I know it is a matter of time and very soon too, I can earn that salary if I am to stay loyal to Liverpool. Rafa is not foolish and will not let him go just like that after grooming him to be what he is today.

      Since he had already established himself in the team and is still young, I am very sure Rafa will do everything possible to keep him. My gut feeling is that Rafa will up his salary to 40k/week to keep him happy and loyal to Liverpool for our assault on all fronts next season. At the back of his mind, he knows that he has a very bright future in the team now that we have the money to buy really good players to make our team really strong for the next season.

    • Let this overrated bum go to barca. Sell him at a profit and get someone we NEED instead. Mascherano and Alonso are just fine in the holding role and unlike the clumsy giraffe Sissoko they can actually score and set up goals!

      Remember this is a player that has NEVER scored or set up a goal for us, has numerous yellow (and red) cards to his name and is p*ss poor in the tackle and passing. Quiet WHY so many LFC fans rave about this gangly injury prone bum is beyond me. Not good enough now or EVER in a red shirt... send him to Spain asap, he isn't worth the red shirt he wears.

      • Paisley some of your points now and again do make sense, but you might be wrong about Sissoko, he is still only very young and is learning his trade, so what if he has'nt scored.
        Henchoz and Rob Jones two great Liverpool players in there day never scored for Liverpool(Henchoz did but it was in a friendly before he went to Celtic).
        The fact is he will score one day and knowing how football goes it will be a goal that is crucial(maybe a cup winning goal).
        His job is plain and simple to put presure on the opposing team midfield and attack,which he does very well indeed, yea his passing is not that good neither is Jamie Carragher and who wants to get rid of him.
        He is only young and he will get better and better, the problem these days(and don't start going on about how we still hav'nt won the league for so long, it pains me as well),is that some supporters are too inpaitent.
        What Rafa has been trying to do is build a squad that will compete for the title year after year, now he has the money and some youthful players(look at the young squad and theones with potential(Carson,Agger,SISSOKO) these are players that will be part of these new team that Rafa is building. So you should have a little more paitent if Rafa does'nt give us the title in the next two/three season the americans will get rid.
