Mohamed Salah joined Chelsea from Basel in the 2014 January transfer window but made just 19 appearances across all competitions before being loaned out to Serie A side Fiorentina at the end of the season.
He subsequently joined Roma permanently in the summer of 2016 following a successful loan spell at the Stadio Olimpico before joining Liverpool last summer.
Salah has become a huge success at Liverpool, scoring 43 goals in 47 appearances for the Reds, winning the PFA Player of the Year award.
Many have accused former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho of failing to give Salah enough opportunities to impress but Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp have now revealed the real reason why Salah failed to impress at Chelsea.
“He was a kid when he came to Chelsea. And Chelsea had a squad that was unbelievable so it was really difficult,” Klopp told Channel 4 news.
“Kevin de Bruyne didn’t play in that squad, that’s a lot.
“I think we all agree Jose Mourinho is a fantastic manager so sometimes things are like that.
“So it doesn’t work, step aside try again and you can still succeed and that’s exactly what happened with Mohamed.”
