Chelsea star Eden Hazard only have praises for his friend Mohamed Salah and according to him, Salah is a “top, top, top player.”
While the Liverpool forward did not get that many chances at Stamford Bridge, he is now enjoying his time at Liverpool as he already has nine goals, and two assists in 12 Premier League games this campaign.
“He is still my friend. We are still in contact together. He’s a top, top, top player,” the Belgium international told reporters.
“He did not get his chance at Chelsea but we know, in the team, the quality he has. He is a fantastic striker and this season he has scored a lot of goals.
“He did not get the chance [at Chelsea]. Maybe because of the manager, because of the players, I don’t know. But he is a top player for sure.
“In training he did everything. Even in the games when he was playing, sometimes he scored goals, so we know the quality he has.”
Mohamed Salah's goal against @SouthamptonFC is enjoyable from every angle 👌🔥

Hazard also said that if he were in the position of Mohamed Salah, where he wasn’t given much opportunity by Chelsea that he would also do the same.
“His feeling was good. When you are not playing at a club you need to go,” he said.
“You need a chance and he took his chance at Fiorentina, so he did everything that you have to do when you are not playing.
“If I was not playing, I’d want to go. That’s normal because all the players want to play. With him, he did well and I am just happy for him.”
