Liverpool news: Ashley Cole reveals he did NOT expect former Chelsea team-mate Mohamed Salah to become world class

Ashley Cole admits he did not expect Mohamed Salah to blossom into a world class footballer after playing alongside the Egyptian at Chelsea.

Salah, the Liverpool star, came back to haunt his former side with a thunderbolt against them during the Reds’ 2-0 victory at Anfield on Sunday.

Salah was not given many opportunities at Chelsea

The strike puts him alongside Sergio Aguero on 19 for the season – while last term Salah broke the record for most goals in a single Premier League campaign.

But the Egypt international’s emergence as one of world football’s most prolific forwards has taken former team-mate Cole by surprise.
