Mohamed Salah has enjoyed a fine start to the Premier League season as he currently tops the scorer's charts with nine goals.

However, the Egyptian did not have the best of times when he joined The Blues a few years ago but Klopp insists the player has nothing to prove.

"Disappointing time? I really can't get that, he was very young in a strong team, that happens very often," Klopp said, according to Sky Sports News.

"Another player in a similar situation is Kevin De Bruyne. Nobody is to blame for that.

"Mo took the next chance. He improved a lot, especially physically, he was always a very good player.

"I don't think he has to prove something, I don't think he sees it like that. It's a completely normal situation.

"If he would have played better at Chelsea, we would not have him probably so I'm happy about this situation."
