How long before Salah gets loaned to a fairly big foreign club and absolutely rips up that league, only to make Chelsea a £5m profit?

Just 1.2% of Mohamed Salah’s completed passes in the Champions League this season were long balls. He clearly loves to keep it on the deck.

Salah is a very good player. I’m sure he will do a great job at Vitesse
