Chelsea manager Antonio Conte believes Mohamed Salah was a different player and Serie A spell was a key moment in his development. The Italian boss told journalists: “We have to compare Salah of four or five years ago, and not this Salah now. Salah in the present has improved a lot, developed a lot his football”.
“The experience in Italy was very important for him. Now I’m sure that he’s a different player compared to in the past. For this reason, this comparison is very difficult with the players.”
Chelsea sold the Egyptian star in 2016 following his loan spell at Fiorentina and AS Roma, who signed the 25-year-old on a permanent move.
