Eden Hazard has taken a dig at Jose Mourinho by saying the now Manchester United boss did not give Mohamed Salah a chance to make a name at Chelsea.

Chelsea visit Liverpool in this weekend’s instalment of the Premier League and one of the shining lights for the Reds so far this term has been former Chelsea winger, Salah.

The Egyptian’s first taste of Premier League football was with Chelsea, but he never quite cut it at Stamford Bridge, and he was subsequently sold to Roma, a decision Hazard feels was a mistake, and has blamed Mourinho, who was the Chelsea manager at the time, for it.

Hazard said: “He was unlucky not to get longer (at Chelsea). He didn't get the chance — maybe because of the manager, maybe because of the players.

“He has quality but in this period I remember it was me, Willian and Oscar, so for him it was not easy. But he's a top player for sure.

“In training he did everything. Even in the games when he was playing, sometimes he scored goals, so we know the quality he has.”

Salah has scored 14 goals in all competitions for Liverpool since his £35million arrival from Roma in the summer.
