Pacey Winger Says “NO” To A Possible Chelsea Return

Chelsea completed quite a few deals on deadline day, which saw players come in and go out of the club, as the deals finalized at the last minute. One deal which was completed that day was the away move of Egyptian winger Mohamed Salah who completed a move to Fiorentina in exchange for Columbian Juan Cuadrado who made the switch to Stamford Bridge. Now recently, the former Basel man has revealed that he has no interest in returning to his parent club Chelsea after joining Fiorentina on loan. The Egyptian who moved to the Serie A side on a temporary deal until the end of the season recently made this statement, as he is happy with his new club and the decision to move away.


Salah admitted that his stay in London was not the best and also revealed he’s got no intention of returning to The Premier League side when his loan move expires. Salah was not used on a regular basis by manager Jose Mourinho who had other talented midfield options to fill in that spot. Since his arrival at Chelsea in the 2014 January window, Salah had made a total of just 13 appearances, netting merely twice. In th recent press conference at his Fiorentina unveiling, the superstar winger said,

“At the moment I don’t intend to return to Chelsea.”  

“I want to do well with Fiorentina. I spoke with [Chelsea manager Jose] Mourinho and told him I wanted to leave Chelsea and he was fine.”

“The Italian League is of a high standard, I think that those [such as Cuadrado] do it simply to broaden their horizons and have new experiences.”

Chelsea are currently on top of the table with a five point lead and face an Aston Villa side today. Mourinho would be determined to maintain that lead and not slip up, as he aims at lifting the Premier League title once again.
