Salah: I proved the doubters wrong

winger believes that spell was unsuccessful due to little game time thinking that Liverpool form will prove doubters wrong.

The 25-year-old Egypt international joined Chelsea in January 2014 but did not receive enough playing time under Jose Mourinho back then, the thing that pushed him towards moving elsewhere on loan one year later, particularly with Serie A side Fiorentina.

“I know from the first day I wanted to do something different, something special. I was here with Chelsea, didn’t get my chance, and then came back. I wanted to show everyone my football.”

“I didn’t play. You can see by the numbers. I didn’t have my chance, but you can see when I did get my chance I proved some people wrong.

“Because in my mind I have to succeed here, when I left the Premier League I said I’d come back, and when I had the chance, I came.”

The Egyptian participated in 19 occasions with Chelsea scoring twice and one goal was against Arsenal in the London Derby.

“You can see the difference [in me] between now, a year before, two years before that. Every year, every day, every month I am proving myself. I always try to see my weakness, work on it, to be better as a person and a player, everything.”

“You can see my body now is different than before, my finishing is different, I am more comfortable on the pitch and am trying to improve every day.

“I think I have had a great season, doing very well with the team, fighting to be in the top positions, second or third. I can’t forget what the team give me, the way we play, the way they support me inside and outside of the pitch.” He concluded

Youssef Wael is a massive Al Ahly and Manchester United supporter from Cairo, Egypt. One of the few Egyptians who never really wanted to have a career in football, just played it as a hobby. Wael also played squash for 7 years.
