The retired Ivory Coast international was team-mates with Salah for eight months at Chelsea FC in 2014 following his £11m move from Basel.
Salah struggled to break into the Chelsea FC team under Jose Mourinho in the second half of the west London side’s title-winning campaign in 2014-15.
The Egypt international completed a loan move to Fiorentina in August 2014 after he scored two goals in 18 appearances in all competitions for Chelsea FC.
Salah returned to the Premier League last summer after he impressed during a two-season spell at AS Roma where he netted 34 times in 83 games.
The forward has improved again at Liverpool after his clinical finish in a 2-0 win at Southampton on Sunday took his tally to 22 goals in the Premier League campaign.
Former Chelsea FC striker Drogba believes Klopp’s faith in Salah has allowed the African forward flourish into one of England’s best players.
“He has always been a good player. We all knew he had it in him.“Maybe now he works with managers who are more willing to give him more responsibility,” Drogba told The Sun.
“If you look with his national team too, he is maybe the biggest player they hav.
“In Italy, he did very well with a big club and now he has gone to England and he is doing even better. He has been fantastic.”
Liverpool FC are in third place in the Premier League table and two points behind Manchester United in the race to secure a Champions League spot.
The Reds haven’t won the top-flight crown since 1990 despite finishing in second place in 2002, 2009 and 2014.
