Antonio Conte defends Chelsea’s decision to sell Salah
Salah joined Chelsea from Basel in 2014, featuring in only 19 matches and scoring just two goals. However, the Liverpool’s winger is currently the highest in Europe scoring 43 goals in all competitions more than Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo who scored 40 and 42 goals respectively.
The 25-year-old then moved to Italy, where he joined ACF Fiorentina on a 6-months loan, then AS Roma for two years.
When asked about Salah’s departure, Conte said: “It’s not so simple because we have to compare Salah from over four or five years ago with this Salah.”
He added, “I think Salah in the present improved and developed a lot. I think the Italy experience was very important for him and now I’m sure he is a different player compared to the past. For this reason, I think it’s very difficult to have this comparison.”
The Egyptian has contributed to 43 goals and 15 assists in 45 games in all competitions this season and was recently named PFA Player of the Year,
