Eden Hazard has claimed that his former teammate Mohammed Salah was unlucky at Chelsea as he was not given enough time to impress.
The Egyptian who is currently the Premier League’s top scorer spent 12 forgettable months at Chelsea before being shipped out initially on-loan to Fiorentina. His stock rose in Italy and he joined AS Roma on a permanent deal the following season where he continued to shine.
This summer, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp took a gamble to bring him back to the Premier League and that gamble seems to have paid off with the winger netting 9 Premier League goals so far.
However, Eden Hazard thinks he could have been performing at the same level if he was still with the Blues, but Jose Mourinho was unimpressed and sold him on.
Hazard is preparing with the defending champions for their clash against Liverpool on Saturday evening and is still good friends with Salah.
According to the Belgian “He is still my friend, we are still in contact”. Despite their friendship, however, Hazard would not like to end up on the losing side. “… I want him to do well, but not very well because we want to win” the Belgian adds.
