Chelsea forward Eden Hazard has rekindled his feud with former club manager Jose Mourinho after he criticised the current Manchester United over his treatment of Egyptian star Mohammed Salah.
Salah found playing opportunities hard to come by while he was at Chelsea under Mourinho and that prompted him to leave Stamford Bridge for Italy.
Speaking earlier ahead of Chelsea’s clash against Salah’s Liverpool at Anfield. Hazard revealed that the former AS Roma and Fiorentina star was unlucky not to stay longer at Chelsea.
In his words, Hazard said: “He was unlucky not to get longer (at Chelsea). He didn’t get the chance — maybe because of the manager.
“He has quality but in this period I remember it was me, Willian and Oscar, so for him it was not easy. But he’s a top player for sure.
“In training he did everything. Even in the games when he was playing, sometimes he scored goals, so we know the quality he has.” he further added.
Speaking further, Hazard said he is still in contact with Salah. The Belgian captain said: “We are still in contact together.”
“He’s a top, top, top player.
“It is always good to play against a friend. It’s good to have friends in this world because in football you can’t have a lot of friends.
“We speak about everything: life, football. I will speak with him this week.
“I want to put pressure on him. I want him to do well but not a lot because we want to win.” he concluded.
Salah has been in scintillating form since moving to Liverpool from Italian side AS Roma in the summer. He has scored 14 goals in all competitions.
