VIDEO: Mourinho praises Salah after Chelsea’s defeat to Basel
José Mourinho spent some time in the mixed zone after his side’s defeat, providing journalists with his judgements on his side’s performance.
The Portuguese manager was asked by Al Jazeera Sports’ correspondent about Basel’s attacking force, and Mohamed Salah in particular, to which Mourinho answered: “They were very difficult to play against.” He quickly added: “He [Salah] is a very good player, very fast too.”
