Didier Drogba Urged Mohamed Salah To Return To Former Club After Contract Elapse

Didier Drogba has urged Mohamed Salah to leave Liverpool and return to former club Chelsea as talks continue regarding a new contract at Anfield.

Salah left Chelsea on a permanent basis in 2016 to sign for AS Roma and has since gone on to establish himself as one of Europe’s most talented players.

The scintillating performances of the Egyptian this season have further raised his reputation and price valuation as Liverpool look to keep hold of their prized asset for the foreseeable future.

Salah is out of contract in the summer of 2023 and is yet to reach terms over a new deal, which is almost certain to make him the highest-paid player in the club’s history.

Sharing his thoughts on the situation of the 29-year-old, Drogba has admitted he would love to see the Reds’ star man return to Stamford Bridge.

“If I am selfish, I will tell Salah to leave Liverpool and return to Chelsea,” he joked when speaking on Al-Axis TV.

“My opinion is that Salah will remain the best, no matter if he continues at Liverpool or if he moves.

“Any other team would perform better [with him] because he understands what he is doing, is good at scoring and creating goals and only needs the confidence of the coach.

“I do not know what his decision would be. This is his decision alone and his future. Wherever he goes, I will be one of his fans.”

Salah spent half of the 2014/15 season with Drogba at Chelsea, before leaving the Londoners on loan in the January of that campaign to join Fiorentina.

Drogba has since witnessed the rapid development of his former team-mate and is concerned that all of his records in the game will be broken by the Reds’ No.11.
