Harvard Business School Examines Mohamed Salah’s Contract Extension with Liverpool
Mohamed Salah’s future has been a constant topic of discussion when it comes to Liverpool, but it is his most recent contract extension that has attracted the attention of Harvard Business School. After months of speculation and worry, the Egyptian put pen to paper on a new deal in 2022, extending his time at the club until 2025. This came after conjecture about the salary Salah was asking for, veiled messages from his agent Ramy Abbas and interviews with the Spanish press that stirred the pot.
The process felt long but the final conclusion was only ever going to be a matter of time – though it did not stop subsequent summer interest from clubs in Saudi Arabia. Now, the contract negotiations are the subject of a case study from Harvard Business School, with Salah and Abbas openly offering insight, with the support of Liverpool.
Harvard Business School Examines Salah’s Contract Negotiations
The Harvard Business School is one of the most highly-rated of its kind in the world and Salah shared the news of the case study on his Instagram not long after Liverpool’s 3-1 win. Any long text post will have made the heart rate pick up slightly, but the content of the post was to share that Salah’s 2022 contract negotiations was forming part of a case study.
Anita Elberse, Harvard Business School professor, and Taher El Moataz Bellah, a writer and studying for his MBA, were co-authors on the piece that examines the process of the extension. The study presents a multitude of questions including, if “Abbas and Salah right to continue to push Liverpool for a better deal – even if Salah, who would turn 30 in a few days, and was already one of the highest-paid players in the world?” The evidence clearly suggests the answer to that was a resounding yes – his terms are in the region of £350,000 a week.
Harvard Business School to Discuss Salah’s Case Study
It would be interesting to get one’s hands on the full case study, which Elberse is to discuss in their upcoming MBA classes at Harvard. Not many footballers can say their contracts have attracted interest like this, but Salah is not just any footballer. He is one of the most prolific goalscorers in Europe and has been instrumental in Liverpool’s recent successes.
The Harvard Business School case study will provide an in-depth look at how Salah and his agent negotiated his contract extension with Liverpool. It will be interesting to see what insights are revealed and how they can be applied to other contract negotiations in football and beyond.
Salah’s extension with Liverpool is a great example of how two parties can come together to reach an agreement that benefits both sides. It also shows how important it is to have an experienced agent who can negotiate on your behalf and get you the best deal possible.
