Mohamed Salah reveals how he joined Chelsea using Whatsapp



Chelsea winger Mohamed Salah has revealed for the first time how an exchange of WhatsApp messages with Jose Mourinho helped clinch his January move to Stamford Bridge, after initially missing a phone call from the Blues manager.

The Egypt international joined from FC Basel in an £11 million deal in the mid-season window, but his arrival in west London might never have transpired
had the Portuguese tactician not received the 22- year-old’s reply via the instant messenger tool.

In an interview with Egyptian TV – as reported by – Salah recalls the horror he felt after seeing a missed call from Mourinho, and
without any credit on his mobile phone thinking he was unable to get back in touch with him.

However, the dismay felt after potentially missing out on a prospective transfer to Chelsea passed after he received an unlikely response on WhatsApp from the 51-year-old following his last-ditch attempt to make contact.

The pair continued negotiations from there, and thankfully an agreement between player and club was reached, meaning Salah’s switch was completed
before the transfer deadline.{GMS}
