Mourinho: Salah from Chelsea to me but it’s a lie

The head coach of Manchester United Jose Mourinho claims that he was not to blame for the fact that Mohamed Salah has left Chelsea.

“People say that I insisted on the fact that Chelsea sold Salah, but it was not so. I’m the one who convinced Chelsea buy Salah. But he was still a child when she came to us. He wasn’t ready – neither physically, nor mentally, nor socially or culturally.

It was hard for him, he was lost. And we decided to give it out, to gain experience. He asked about it. I agreed to rent, and he went to Fiorentina. And then Chelsea decided to sell Salah. All attributed to the sale of Salah from Chelsea to me, but it’s a lie“, – quotes Mourinho ESPN.

Roma bought from Chelsea Mohamed Salah in July 2016, the year for 15 million euros. In that time Mourinho has not coached the “blue“.

Earlier it was reported that Liverpool will refuse any offer of real Madrid concerning the transfer of Salah.
