Vincenzo Montella: Mohamed Salah is very similar to Juan Cuadrado


Fiorentina coach Vincenzo Montella has likened on-loan midfielder Mohamed Salah to former Viola man Juan Cuadrado.

The 22-year-old agreed to join Fiorentina as part of the deal that saw the Colombian join Jose Mourinho's squad for £23.3m.

And the Egypt international was on target in the Europa League against Tottenham Hotspur, much to the delight of his manager.

"Salah is a player that, even if he takes some breaks, is devastating over 40 or 50 yards," Montella said.

"Who did better out of the Cuadrado exchange? Fiorentina earned a lot of money and, on the pitch, they are similar players."

Meanwhile, Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is happy to see that Salah is enjoying regular football in the Italian Serie A.

"Salah went there to play and he is getting his time on the pitch," Mourinho said.

"We only care about his evolution, not that he scored a goal against an English team."
