EPL: Mohamed Salah, Kevin De Bruyne never good enough – John Terry

Chelsea legend, John Terry has claimed that Liverpool ace, Mohamed Salah, and Manchester City playmaker, Kevin De Bruyne failed under manager, Jose Mourinho at Chelsea because they weren’t good enough to play for the Blues.

According to Terry, Salah and De Bruyne was “below the standard” of Damien Duff and Arjen Robben at Stamford Bridge under Mourinho.

Terry, who is currently the assistant manager of Aston Villa, said this ahead of his side’s Premier League clash against Newcastle United on Monday.

“In my generation now I see people like Salah and Kevin De Bruyne come through and not being able to match his standards at the time,” Terry told Dubai Eye radio.

“Now they were very talented but very young individuals as well. But Mourinho didn’t have time to put them in the team or take out a Duff or Robben because we were winning every single week and his job is on the line.

“So, as I said before if you come in and you are 10 or 20 per cent below the standard of Duff and Robben who were scoring 20 goals a season each. You are not gonna make that team, no chance.

“Fair play to them they’ve gone away elsewhere and proved they’re good enough but at that present time they weren’t good enough for Chelsea.”
