VIDEO: Chelsea reject Mohamed Salah runs length of the pitch to continue scoring form for Fiorentina

Not too shabby at all

Darragh Murphy

Mohamed Salah couldn’t break into Chelsea’s first team.

But he’s looked like a man on fire since his loan move to Fiorentina as he finished off a stunning counter attack to open the scoring in a Coppa Italia tie against Juventus.

Egyptian international Salah had limited opportunities at Stamford Bridge, finding the net just twice in 18 appearances since signing in January 2013, but has flourished since his switch to Serie A.

His loan move was seen as a bargaining chip for Chelsea’s securing of Juan Cuadrado’s signature but it could be argued that Salah has actually had the more impact in his new surroundings than Caudrado since the January moves.

This goal was Salah’s fifth in just seven games, only four of which he’s started. Not the worst goal you’re going to see this Thursday.

And just as this frustrated writer was publishing, the clinical flippin’ winger only went and scored another. He’s breaking records faster than we can bloody type.
