EPL: "Why Mohamed Salah Didn't Make It At Chelsea"...Lampard

Frank Lampard spoke about why Mohamed Salah, who was once his team-mate, did not make it at Stamford bridge.

The Liverpool playmaker spent only a year and a half at Chelsea and played only He played only nineteen games before he moved to Italy.

Salah's performance-enhanced during his stay at Roma before he got signed by Liverpool and has become a world-class forward in England.

Lampard, however, is quickly gaining a reputation as one who will give young players a chance if he sees the talent there,

This is what Lampard said when he was asked if Salah would have established himself at Chelsea in his current age...

It is hard to answer because you can never directly compare players from a different generation or era. It is hard because everyone has their own pathways. Unfortunately for Mo, it did not work out here but great credit to him, he went to Italy and then came back and now he is a superstar. That is his path and it is hard to compare with what might have been in different circumstances.

The Chelsea boss also talked about his talent...

The talent was obviously there but at that time we had a lot of options in attacking areas – wingers, no.10s and striker-type players and he did not get many opportunities for whatever reason. To become the player who came back to Liverpool, that is where huge credit is due and you don’t have to go searching any further than Mo himself for that, to say what professionalism, what work ethic. To leave a club like Chelsea is not easy because people will then cast you aside as you did not make it here. To go and prove himself and be the superstar he is now is complete credit to Mo himself.

Frank Lampard has taken it upon himself to build the talent of youngsters as long as there is talent in them.

Chelsea and Liverpool locked horns on Sunday at Stamford Bridge with the Blues boss wary of the threat posed by the Egyptian forward.
