Chelsea midfielder Eden Hazard has claimed that former teammate Mohamed Salah was never given a chance to prove himself at Chelsea.Hazard added that he will look to swap shirts with the Egypt international who he thinks wasn’t handed enough time to prove his full potential, after the Blues face Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday.Salah has made a sensational return to the Premier League since joining Liverpool from Roma for £34 million in the summer, surging to the top of the division’s scoring charts with nine goals in 12 appearances.“He is still my friend and we are still in contact,” Hazard said of Salah. “He’s a top, top, top player. He did not get his chance at Chelsea — maybe because of the manager, because of the other players? I don’t know.“He has quality but in that period I remember we had me, Willian, Oscar, so for him it was not easy. But he’s a top player, for sure, and we know as a team the quality he has. He is a fantastic striker and this season he has scored a lot of goals.“In training he would do everything. Even in the games when he was playing, sometimes he would score goals, so we knew the quality he had. I am just happy for him.“When you are not playing at a club you need to go. 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 of all the players want to play.
