Frank Lampard pinpoints Mo Salah's difference at Chelsea and Liverpool: He's more like Messi under Klopp
The Egyptian was far from being a leading player at Stamford.
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.
Frank Lampard explains why it was impossible to show signs of his greatness back at Chelsea. He said: ''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.''
