McAvennie hailed Salah for not going to the press regarding his own future.
“Even though nothing is agreed, Salah has done the right thing,” McAvennie told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.
“There hasn’t been any talks that he’s unsettled or anything. But he’s still playing and what form he’s in. You love to see it.
“It’s chalk and cheese. Look at that idiot Mbappe. He’s shouting his mouth off to everyone now. It’s a poor example.
“I don’t know Salah personally but I get the impression he is a sound guy and he wouldn’t leave Liverpool high and dry.
“He’s a legend at that club now and they have to do everything to keep him there.”
