Former Chelsea left-back Filipe Luis only spent one season at Stamford Bridge after joining from Atletico Madrid but saw enough to compare a former Chelsea teammate with Barcelona star Lionel Messi.

According to Luis, former Chelsea teammate Mohamed Salah was as good as Messi during training.

The Egyptian international was signed by Jose Mourinho during his time as Chelsea boss but Salah failed to play regularly for the Blues before finally leaving the Blues permanently for Roma. He later left the Italian club for Liverpool.

Luis told Daily Mail about Salah: “In training Mohamed Salah was like Messi. It’s a pity not to have played with him more.”
