Liverpool sensation Mohamed Salah has admitted that he is motivated to succeed in the Premier League by his previous failure at Chelsea.
Salah has scooped up pretty much every individual award available to him this season having scored an incredible 43 goals for the Reds in his debut campaign at Anfield.
He moved to Liverpool in the summer for the relatively modest fee of £35 million having spent three years plying his trade in Italy for Fiorentina and Roma respectively.
He had of course previously spent 18 months playing under Jose Mourinho at Chelsea, but failed to make an impact, and was quickly shipped out.
His goals this season have guided Liverpool to the Champions League final, and needing only a point in their last game to ensure a top four finish once again. Speaking at the latest awards ceremony to honour his achievements, the ‘Egyptian King’ has said his failure at Stamford Bridge is inspiring him to succeed.
He said: “I’m always happy to achieve something. I have worked hard and just want to help my team.
“I’m very happy with this award and very proud.
“I was here four years ago and people said I couldn’t play on the Premier League. That was very difficult and in my mind.
“When I left Chelsea they said I couldn’t play. I wanted to prove those people wrong.
“That was everybody, not [just] the Chelsea man.”
