Mohamed Salah: Why I Flopped At Jose Mourinho's Chelsea

By Kurt Buckerfield - Feb 08, 2018 02:29 PM @KurtLaduma

Liverpool and African superstar Mohamed Salah has explained why he believes he failed at Jose Mourinho's Chelsea.

Click through the gallery above to see which clubs Salah has played for in his career so far!

The Egyptian has been sensational since his return to England, contributing to 28 goals in 25 games for Liverpool in the Premier League already this season.

Salah's first attempt at playing in the English top flight in 2014 did not go all that well, though, after he had signed for Mourinho's Chelsea from Swiss club Basel, and the 25-year-old believes his first spell in the EPL was a failure due to a lack of playing opportunities.

"I didn't do well because I didn't play many games," he told Marca.

"I was there for one year, but I only played during the first six months.

"After that, I hardly participated. I went to Fiorentina, scored goals, then in Rome I played very well and returned to England. But it's not a matter of succeeding or not."

Salah scored 34 goals and assisted another 24 strikes in 83 games for previous club Roma before his move to Liverpool at the beginning of this season.

Mourhino chased DeBruyn,Mata,Salah from Chelsea. Only defensive boring coach can ignore such talent. This Mou was so lucky to be one season wonder coach on all rich clubs he joined. He can't build a team. Let me wait his competition between him and Pep.
