Eden Hazard hails Salah after another great performance

Published 11 Comments

Chelsea star Eden Hazard took to Twitter to hail another sensational performance from Fiorentina winger Mohamed Salah - his former teammate who's currently on loan in Italy from Chelsea.

Since arriving on a temporary deal from Chelsea in the January transfer window, the Egyptian winger has six goals in seven games. He was at it again tonight, bagging two more as Fiorentina beat Juventus 2-1 in Turin in the Coppa Italia semi-final.

Fiorentina have an option to make Salah's move permanent for a fixed price at the end of the season, but Chelsea fans must surely now be wondering why he was ever allowed to leave in the first place.

Salah didn't get much of a look in under Mourinho, despite a decent record in front of goal when he did get on the pitch.

With the Chelsea boss keen to sign Juan Cuadrado from Fiorentina, he allowed Salah to join the Serie A side to grease the wheels of the agreement for Cuadrado, who of course has since joined the Premier League leaders.

But while Cuadrado settles slowly into life in England, Salah has stormed into Serie A and taken it by the scruff of the neck. 

And Hazard is clearly a fan...

Salah was voted the league's best January signing after a spectacular February and that form looks likely to continue this month too.

So what was Mourinho thinking?

Well, with Oscar, Willian, and Hazard his established three attacking midfielders, Salah didn't stand much of a chance in terms of meaningful Premier League minutes.

But it's strange that Mourinho refused to give him much of an opportunity, as it seemed throughout January that he was determined to sign Cuadrado.

To make that happen, Salah and Andre Schurrle were obviously deemed expendable. Although it's early days, it looks like Chelsea could come to regret letting the little Egyptian leave.

What do you think Chelsea fans? Did Mourinho move Salah on too quickly?
