Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata has made shocking comments about Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah, according to report.

The Spanish forward admitted that he is impressed by the form of Salah for Liverpool this season after making a switch from AS Roma during the summer.

Salah has been superb for the Reds and he has made an incredible impact in helping the Anfield outfit to maintain a top four sport so far and reached the Champions League finals

The Egypt international has scored 40 goals in all competitions this season and subsequently won the PFA player of the year.

Morata might miss out on a place in the Spain squad for the World Cup after suffering a dip in form for Chelsea this season.

Morata is of the view that Salah is an example of how things can turn around for attacking players

Morata said in an interview with Spanish “The joy if you’re on the list [for the World Cup squad] can be great, but there’s a need to realise that the year hasn’t been the best and there’s a chance of staying at home.

“Football is about moments. Look at Mohamed Salah, who is fantastic and I’m happy for what’s happening to him.

“But last summer they said it was good for him to be sold and now look.” He told Marca.

Salah is hoping to help Liverpool win the Champions League against Real Madrid in the finals in Kiev, Ukraine.
