Salah: Why I Flopped At Mourinho's Chelsea

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

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."
