Mohamed Salah clubs and transfers
Salah made his first-team debut with Egyptian club El Mokawloon in 2010. After three seasons with the club, Basel signed Salah on a four-year contract.
However, he only stayed two seasons with the Swiss club and left for Chelsea in a €16.50m deal in 2014. However, things didn’t turn out well for the Egyptian and he was loaned out to Italian club Fiorentina after a year with Chelsea.
While Fiorentina had a loan deal with Salah for 18 months and a further option to make the loan deal permanent, Salah refused to move to the club and instead joined Roma for a loan fee of around €5 million.
Roma had a deal in place to make the transfer permanent for a reported €15 million. Roma exercised this option in 2016. After a successful individual season for the Italian club, Liverpool came calling for the forward in 2017. He signed a long-term contract with the Premier League club for an initial €42m fee that could rise to €50m.
What went wrong for Mohamed Salah in Chelsea?
Many have pointed out that Salah’s failure to perform at Chelsea was due to Chelsea’s manager Jose Mourinho. However, Mourinho has distanced himself from such claims by stating that it was him who suggested the club to sign Salah in the first place. However, as the club already had talented players like Eden Hazard, Willian and Oscar ahead of Salah, the team couldn’t give him enough minutes to play.
“He was just a lost kid in London. He was a lost kid in a new world,” Mourinho said.
“We wanted to work him, to become better and better and better. But he was more of the idea of wanting to play and not wait.
“I think that he doesn’t regret that move because everything went well. Everything went well for him and the progression went well for him but, at that moment, he was just a kid with a huge desire to play every week, every minute and we couldn’t give him it.”
In a year-stay with Chelsea, Salah made only 19 appearances in all competitions and scored 2 goals.
After his exploits at Liverpool, Salal said that he was happy to prove doubters wrong.
“I was here like four years ago and a lot of people said he couldn’t [have] success, that I cannot play in the Premier League, [that] it was very difficult for him,” Salah said.
“So it was always in my mind to come back. From the first day I left Chelsea, it was always in my mind to make them wrong.
“I made them wrong.”

“We know that it’s special but there’s a lot of work [involved] and you can only score if you invest that in each game – if you are in the right positions and do the right thing, and that’s what the boys were always ready to do and what they have to do still and then it will continue.
