Chelsea boss Lampard pays tribute to "superstar" Salah

:Headline: Chelsea boss Lampard pays tribute to 'superstar' Salah:
Liverpool talisman Mohamed Salah left Stamford Bridge in 2016 and was briefly a team-mate of Frank Lampard's at the Blues.
PA | 24d

Frank Lampard admits he knew Mohamed Salah was destined for bigger things when the pair were together at Chelsea.

Salah moved to Stamford Bridge in 2014 but struggled for game time under Jose Mourinho and made just 19 appearances for the club before joining Roma.

Lampard was a team-mate of the Egyptian for six months before his own Chelsea career came to an end that summer.

The Blues boss now has to find a way of stopping Salah, who has scored 75 goals in 111 appearances since joining Liverpool, when the sides meet at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

"Unfortunately for Mo, it didn't work out here but it is great credit to him. He went to Italy and then came back and now he's a superstar," said Lampard.

Chelsea were the better side for much of the game and only lost on penalties after a 2-2 draw in Istanbul.

"For us, it will show us that we can compete with what, on form, are the best team in the country," added Lampard.

"I know it was early in the season and there are different things to take into account from that but I think we more than held ourselves in a good manner and we could have won the game.

"In our opinion we should have won the game if we had taken our chances but every game is a new thing.

"I think this game is now on its own in front of us. We are going up against the best team in the country at the moment."
