What Liverpool star Mohamed Salah said when he signed for Chelsea in 2014 | Football | Sport
The Egyptian signed a five-and-a-half-year deal and the fee was reported to be in the region of £11million.
Salah was 21 at the time and hoped he would have “many years” of success at Stamford Bridge.
After completing his move, he said: “I’m very happy to sign for Chelsea.
“I hope I can make the Chelsea supporters happy and have a good career at the club for many years.”
Unfortunately for Salah, it didn’t quite work out as he had hoped.
The forward lasted just 12 months, making only six Premier League starts for the Blues.
He went on loan to Fiorentina and then to Roma, who later signed him on a permanent deal.
Salah impressed in Serie A and Liverpool came calling in 2017.
The Reds paid £34million to bring the Egypt international back to the Premier League.
Salah said of his return to England: “Everything [has improved].
“Even my personality was different, I was a kid – I was 20 or 21.
It’s safe to say Salah’s second spell in the Premier League has been a resounding success so far.
The 27-year-old has scored 58 goals in 79 games to win back-to-back Golden Boots.
He also helped Liverpool win the Champions League last season and reach the final the campaign before.
