Mohamed Salah concluded an incredible debut season with Liverpool by picking up the prestigious Golden Boot award ahead of Harry Kane as we beat Brighton & Hove Albion.
Since joining Liverpool, the Egyptian has been a standout performer for us and he only improved with every passing game. Soon enough, Salah became a favourite among the fans and critics alike. However, as the former Roma player became popular across England, there were talks about how Chelsea allowed him to leave a long time ago.
Prior to joining Roma, Salah was labelled as a flop at Chelsea. At the time, Jose Mourinho was the club’s manager and although the Blues have tasted success in recent times, their policy in dealing with youngsters continues to come under the scanner.
Salah was one such gem who went unnoticed at Stamford Bridge. Amidst all this, Mourinho recently came out and clarified that he did not urge Chelsea to sell Salah back then (Sky Sports).
“I did meet him twice – in our match here at Anfield [Liverpool vs Manchester United] and in the other match in Manchester. He told me that he is happy with what I am doing. So, I thanked him.
“We didn’t talk much; I just said ‘hi’ to him and he told me that he was happy for me.”
The season may have ended for a lot of clubs but we have a tough Champions League final against Real Madrid to prepare for.
Undoubtedly, Salah will once again essay a crucial role for us as we must avoid ending the season without a trophy. With 44 goals in all competitions so far, it will indeed be interesting to see how many Salah would add to his tally on the final day of our season.
