​Ex-Liverpool star Crouch warns against selling front three

Former Liverpool striker Peter Crouch does not believe the club should sell any of their front three.

The likes of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino are a huge part of the success the club has enjoyed in the past few years.

However, Mane and Firimino have struggled for goals this term, and Salah has been linked with Real Madrid and Barcelona.

Crouch spoke with the Daily Mail: "I wouldn't sell any of them. Why would you even think of doing that unless one of them wanted to go?

"I understand Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino have not hit the heights we have expected of them this season but that doesn't mean their time is up.

"It staggers me that we live in a world where cancel culture is growing by the day.

"A player is out of form for a season? Sell him. A manager underperforms? Sack him. It's a miserable way to go on and let's just put what Mo Salah, Mane and Firmino have achieved in context.

"They are the front three who brought the title to Liverpool after 30 years and there is plenty of life in them still.

"I bet you if Mane or Firmino went somewhere else, they would be exhilarating.

"Jurgen Klopp, for one, will not be in any hurry to let them go."
