Sports: I think Salah is surprised at his fantastic form, I should be given credits for bringing him to EPL –Mourinho

Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has said that Liverpool forward, Mohamed Salah’s fantastic form is even a surprise to the player and that he deserves some credit for bringing the player to Stamford Bridge in the first place and not be blamed for selling the talented player.

Mourinho said, “I think everything has surprised even him. It has been fantastic.

“But he is a great player that has reached the peak of maturity, he has already lived several other experiences and now has fitted perfectly into the style of play of the team, of the coach and of the club as well. So it doesn’t surprise me that much,” Mourinho told ESPN Brazil.

Mourinho also stressed that he should not be blamed for selling the Liverpool star to Roma in 2016.

A 21-year-old Salah arrived at Stamford Bridge from Basel for €16.5million in January 2014.

However, the Egypt international found opportunities hard to come by at the club and was loaned to Fiorentina the following winter and then sold to Roma the following summer.

Salah returned to the Premier League at the start of this season, signing with Liverpool for a then club-record fee of €42m and has gone on to score 43 goals in all competitions, winning the PFA Player of the Year in the process.
