Mohamed Salah believes that he is a “different” player at Liverpool FC to the one who struggled at Chelsea FC a few years ago.

The Egypt international has been one of European football’s top performers this season and the 25-year-old was voted as the PFA player of the year following his sparkling performances for the Blues.

Salah struggled during time at Chelsea FC between 2014 and 2016 before eventually being sold to AS Roma after failing to hold down a spot in the team.

Liverpool FC signed the attacker from the Italian side last summer and his impact in the team at Anfield has been nothing short of remarkable.

Salah has scored 40 goals and made 11 assists in all competitions for Jurgen Klopp’s side to help them up into third place in the Premier League and into the semi-finals of the Champions League.

And the attacker has admitted that a lot has changed for him since his time at Chelsea FC a few years back.

Speaking to BBC Sport after being voted as the PFA player of the year, Salah said: “It’s an honour and especially as it’s voted by the players. I am happy and proud.

“I didn’t have my chance at Chelsea. It was clear I would return and show everyone my football. I think I left and came back a different person, man and player.”

Salah will be expecting to feature for Liverpool FC when the Reds host AS Roma in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final clash on Tuesday night at Anfield.
