Chelsea boss Frank Lampard believes Mo Salah struggled at Chelsea due to lack of opportunities.
Salah has become one of the best players in the world since leaving Chelsea.
“It is hard because everyone has their own pathways,” said Lampard, according to Metro.
“Unfortunately for Mo, it didn’t work out here but it is great credit to him. He went to Italy and then came back and now he is a superstar.
“As for his path, it is hard to compare to what may have been. I had an overlap with him.
“The talent was obviously there. At the time, I think we had a lot of options in attacking areas.
“Number 10s, wingers and he didn’t get as many opportunities for whatever reason but yes you could see the talent was there.
“But the player that he is now or that came back to Liverpool I think you have to say huge credit is due.
“You don’t have to search for anything more than look at Mo himself. You have to say what professionalism and work ethic to leave a club like Chelsea is not easy.
“People then cast you aside and say you won’t make it there. He went onto be the superstar he is now. It is completely credit to Mo himself.”
