Chelsea's Mohamed Salah playing in a pre-season friendly against Real Sociedad. Stamford Bridge, August 2014.

While Liverpool‘s Mohamed Salah is now one of the best players in the world, his time at Chelsea didn’t go to plan. 

Salah joined Chelsea from Basel in an £11million deal in January 2014 but struggled to establish himself as a first-team regular under Jose Mourinho.

He made a rare start for the club in an FA Cup fourth-round clash with Bradford City in January 2015 and registered an assist as they went 2-0 up at Stamford Bridge.

But the away side then produced an incredible comeback, scoring four goals to knock the Premier League side out of the competition.

“I feel ashamed and I think the players should feel exactly the same as I feel,” Mourinho said after the game. “By one side this is the beauty of football, the beauty of the FA Cup. It happens more in the FA Cup than any other country.

“[But] I repeat the word that I used yesterday in case we lost – it’s a disgrace. A sporting disgrace, but it’s a disgrace. I know in the history of this competition it happens to every team now and again.

“For me it’s the first time and I think it’s unacceptable to lose against a team from a lower league.”

That game proved to be Salah’s last appearance for Chelsea as he went on loan to Fiorentina and Roma before joining the latter on a permanent deal in the summer of 2016.

The Egypt international returned to England a year later and has since won the Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup, Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup.
