Jurgen Klopp: 'Mohamed Salah has nothing to prove to Chelsea'

Jurgen Klopp: 'Mohamed Salah has nothing to prove to Chelsea'

The plane carrying the Blues back from the Champions League tie against Qarabag had to abort its first landing at Gatwick in the early hours of Thursday morning. "But really, it's a point for us and we are still top of the group, so it was an important point", the Brazilian added.

While the winger struggled to make an impact at Chelsea, he certainly shone for Roma and since joining the Reds, has shown he had the potential to be one of the best attacking players in the Premier League - and has lived up to said potential.

Conte said: "It was a problem to land because there was a lot of wind. In these circumstances you feel a bit afraid, a bit scared, but the captain was very good".

His form in Italy, firstly in Florence and then with Roma, convinced Liverpool to part with a club-record £36.9m to finally bring the former Basel man to Mersey side - and so far he has flourished, scoring 14 goals in his first 19 games to become an instant Anfield hero. The second half was very unusual for many reasons, but they are a really good team defensively and offensively.

"Today we had a good training session and we tried to prepare for the game against Liverpool". So I have to pay great attention in all situations.

Eden Hazard has hailed his former teammate, Mohamed Salah as a top player, who did not get enough chances at Chelsea. "Salah is a good player, he is very risky".

Conte had plenty of praise for Liverpool too, after Klopp's team came under criticism this week for throwing away a three-goal lead against Sevilla in a 3-3 draw in the Champions League.

"He is a technical player, but at the same time is very fast, very strong, very good in one-v-ones and very good at finishing".

The Chelsea head coach drew comparisons between himself and Jurgen Klopp's management styles, both can regularly be seen frantically gesturing to their players from the touchline throughout games.

"I will pay great attention to him, but also to [Sadio] Mane, [Philippe] Coutinho, [Roberto] Firmino, [Daniel] Sturridge". "It's very hard for us not to show this passion in this type of situation". For me it is very hard to stay seated and to watch the game.

"I consider [Klopp] one of the best coaches in the world".
