Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says 'Salah is going nowhere'

Mohamed Salah

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has insisted that Egypt's Mohamed Salah will not be leaving the club in the January transfer window.

Salah played in the Champions League win over Sporting Lisbon on Wednesday but has made just two Premier League starts this season.

The 22-year-old featured 11 times last season, scoring twice, after signing from Swiss club Basel in January.

"Salah is our player, he's a player we like," Mourinho said.

"He's a player we trust, he's a player in our squad and he's going nowhere.

"Maybe he's moving house but not club."

Mourinho also praised Salah's performance against Sporting saying that he "played well."
