Liverpool's Mohamed Salah: The Premier League is perfect for me

Liverpool's Mohamed Salah: The Premier League is perfect for me
From ESPN - March 17, 2018

Mohamed Salah has told ESPN Brasil that he believes the Premier League perfectly suits his style of play and revealed he always wanted a return to England despite his unsuccessful stay at Chelsea.

Salah is in his second spell in the Premier League following his testing period at Chelsea, where he only made 19 appearances for the club between 2014 and 2016.

The Egypt international, who nearly joined Liverpool instead of Chelsea in January 2014, said he was not deterred about another move to England when Liverpool came calling again this summer.

"In Chelsea I did not play, so I did not have my chances," Salah said. "I said to all my friends, I think I said it on many interviews as well, that I wanted to come back.

"I like the Premier League I lot. I feel it has my style of football. I like to play [in] the Premier League.

"I said since day one here that I am happy here at Liverpool and I want to show my football here.

"If you look at me now and five years ago, everything has changed -- mentally, physically ... everything."

Salah's return to England sees him competing with Harry Kane for the Premier League's Golden Boot. The 25-year-old has scored 32 goals in all competitions so far this season.
