Antonio Conte backs Chelsea on Mohamed Salah's decision

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte believes Liverpool sensation Mohamed Salah is an improved version of the player the Blues signed in 2014. 

The Egypt international has been more than superb for the Reds since he joined them last summer – netting 31 goals in 33 Premier League appearances and 43 in all competitions. 

While at the Stamford Bridge four seasons back, he only managed to score two goals in 13 matches before being offloaded to Fiorentino in 2015. 

Meanwhile, the Italian born tactician says the club was right on their decision as at when they sold him to the Italian side. 

The former Basel forward scored 39 goals in 64 appearances for the Stadio Olimpico outfit in his close to 18 months reign at the club. 

He however returned to the EPL three seasons after leaving for Italy to join Liverpool in a five year deal worth £37 million has swept almost all the awards available in the league. 

And Conte thinks it was impossible to predict that Salah would kick on to become one of the most sought-after players in the world. He said: "It's not so simple because we have to compare Salah from over four or five years ago with this Salah.
