With Liverpool hosting Chelsea this weekend at Anfield, current blues number 10, Eden Hazard has surprisingly blamed former boss Mourinho on the sale of Salah.
Mohammed Salah joined Chelsea in the January window of 2014. He joined from Switzerland Club Basel. Then boss of Chelsea Football club Jose Mourinho was impressed by the Egyptian, after the two clubs met during their Champions League group stage game. He then quickly made him a Chelsea player come January, admist interest from other English clubs.
Unfortunately for the Egyptian star, he failed to make an impact at the Bridge. He made only 13 league appearances during his 2 year stay at Chelsea. Salah was later loaned out to Fiorentina, then Roma. Roma chose to make the deal permanent after Salah impressed in Rome.
Salah particularly impressed last season that turned on the interest of Liverpool to make him their record signing.
With Salah’s rise in prominence at Merseyside, former team mate Hazard has lashed out on Mourinho for not giving Salah the chance he deserved.
Hazard has come open to criticise Mourinho for Salah’s struggles during his time at Chelsea.
“look at the number of goals he has scored already this season. See the kind of player he his under a coach who has given him the confidence to play”, Hazard was quoted to have said.
