Jose Mourinho: I’m happy scandal-hit Federation Internationale de Football Association have time to investigate Chelsea
The 23-year-old had spent the second-half of last season out on loan to Fiorentina and impressed in his short tenure with the Italians, leading the club to offer Chelsea a deal to make the move permanent, which Salah declined in apparent breach of his contract according to the club.
A Federation Internationale de Football Association spokesperson confirmed the complaint from Fiorentina over Mohamed Salah’s alleged breach of contract: “It’s pending”. In the 2015 summer transfer window, 33 players have left the club temporarily and the list includes the likes of Cuadrado, Victor Moses, Marco van Ginkel and many more.
Emenalo insists the loan system has been put in place precisely to promote the development of talent.
It remains to be seen if Chelsea’s loan strategy will come under further scrutiny following the complaint from Fiorentina over Salah.
Salah signed for Chelsea previous year, but struggled to seal a regular starting spot at Stamford Bridge.
“Sometimes the timing is not right for them”.
“These players go to top clubs and when they get there they prove we don’t recruit bad players, just like Salah did last season”.
“So we felt it would be better for him to go and rediscover his confidence and he hasn’t just gone to any other team… he’s gone to Juventus”.
After a few ropey weeks for Chelsea football club, with some unconvincing displays and results being coupled with off field problem, Chelsea fans enjoying a pint in the Transfer Tavern were hoping the worldwide break would give their club a chance to start a fresh and get their season back on track.
