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

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

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte insists that the lack of preparation time afforded his side for this weekend's game against Liverpool is "not right". Obviously it was hard in these times to come in the [Chelsea] team, they had already a fantastic offensive team.

"Today we had a good training session and we tried to prepare for the game against Liverpool".

"I think that to have only one day to prepare a big game, especially to have only one day to rest is not right, not right for all, not only Chelsea, but for all the teams".

Conte has now asked his club to speak urgently with the Premier League in a bid to prevent a similar situation developing in future.

And Conte is annoyed that for the second time this season, the defending champions face a big match on a Saturday so soon after a hard away tie in Europe on a Wednesday.

Manchester City lead the way this season with a whopping 34 points taken from their first 12 league games. "They have to pay more attention and to try and give the same possibilities to each team to recover in the right way and the same way, and not to create problems for only one team".

"But I think that everybody at Chelsea knows what a great manager Conte is and I hope he stays and will be more successful".

Salah, of course, famously turned down the opportunity to move to Liverpool from Basel in 2014, opting instead to move to Chelsea in a £12m deal. "Salah is a good player, he is very unsafe". He was very young in a very strong team and it didn't come through, that happens very often.

Conte stated that there wouldn't be any room for excuses from his side when they face Liverpool, while highlighting the similarities he shares with his Liverpool counterpart, Jurgen Klopp.

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.
