Mohamed Salah says that he has no intention of returning to Chelsea when his loan spell at Fiorentina ends later this year.
The Egyptian international closed a miserable 12 months at Stamford Bridge on transfer deadline day, moving to Florence for the remainder of the season as a part of the deal that took Juan Cuadrado to west London.
Despite showing some signs of promise in the blue shirt at the back end of last term, Jose Mourinho opted against giving the 22-year-old wide-man a serious chance to impress this time around, instead fielding the likes of Eden Hazard and Willian in wide roles.
And now he’s officially a Fiorentina player, Salah has revealed that he does not want to head back to Chelsea and that he’s told the ‘Special One’ just how he feels:
“At the moment I don’t intend to return to Chelsea,” he is quoted by The Express.
“I want to do well with Fiorentina. I spoke with Mourinho and told him I wanted to leave Chelsea and he was fine.”
Salah impressed with FC Basel before joining Chelsea last year, rejecting Liverpool.
