Frank Lampard explains Mohamed Salah failure at Chelsea
The Egyptian has carried his team into the Champions League semis as the aftertaste still remains with some Chelsea fans
Mohamed Salah, 25, represented Chelsea from 2014 to 2016 but he made only a dozen of appearances and was deemed not ready for the Blues.
Now he's in a stellar form at Liverpool, leading the Premier League's goalscorer rankings and making it into the later stages of the Champions League. But Frank Lampard explains why it was impossible to show signs of this back at Chelsea.
He said: ''No. He didn’t get that many chances to show that. But he’s released himself from the wing. At Chelsea, he was seen as a winger. He didn’t have much impact but there were a lot of players ahead of him, the likes of Eden Hazard who was older than him.
''By releasing himself from the wing he’s been able to show his brilliant intelligence. Sometimes we watch Lionel Messi and he’s great at just standing in areas. Salah’s started to do that, just standing in areas and all of a sudden the ball comes to him and he goes.''
