‘Thanks Jose’ – Liverpool fans on Twitter react as Man United chief speaks out

The Liverpool fans have been going in on Jose Mourinho after he blamed Chelsea for selling Mohamed Salah to Roma back in 2016. Whilst speaking to ESPN, Mourinho claimed that Salah was sold by the club and not him seeing as he’s the one who signed the winger. The Portuguese manager described the Egyptian as not ready mentally and physically and claimed he was socially and culturally lost.

In 2018, there’s no doubting Mo Salah’s ability. The Liverpool man has bagged an obscene 43 goals in all competitions this year including 31 in the Premier League. Although it hasn’t always been flashy football and classy goals for the forward. Just two years ago Salah was sold to Roma after failing to impress both at Chelsea and out on loan to Fiorentina.

Jose Mourinho was the man who signed Mo Salah and has said he should deserve credit for bringing him to the Premier League but cannot be blamed for the Liverpool stars departure from Stamford Bridge in summer 2016. During his interview with ESPN, Mourinho claimed that he and Salah agreed that a loan option was best as the player wanted more minutes and Mourinho wanted to see him mature as a player. Salah went on loan and was sold upon on his return, which Mourinho flatly denies as being his fault.
