Sadio Mane says he has no trouble with Mohamed Salah and gets along like before.
Earlier this season, Sadio Mane was pissboiled over the fact that his teammate Mohamed Salah failed to pass the ball to him. The Senegalese International didn’t show his frustrations on the pitch, rather he did it when he was taken off in the second half against Burnley.
James Milner and Roberto Firmino calmed the situations down by interacting with him and in the post-match interview, Jordan Henderson divulged that it happened in the heat of the moment. Jurgen Klopp also described Mane as an ’emotionally driven character’ and didn’t have any problem with that incident.
It has been a hot topic for a while now. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain said Mohamed Salah likes to score goals and isn’t selfish at any cost and shouldn’t be misjudged over that incident.
When Sadio Mane was asked about his relationship after that incident the Senegalese International rejected any rift between him and Salah.
In the pre-match press conference ahead of the Champions League clash against Red Bull Salzburg, Liverpool forward said: “Wow, what a question! Things can happen in football. I was a little bit frustrated [at Burnley in August] because it’s football and you want to score more goals.
You can see Man City [winning] 8-0, 7-0, 6-0. For the team, I thought it was really important for us to score as many goals as we could. But it can happen – he didn’t see me. I was a bit frustrated but we have become really, really good friends. It’s all forgotten, it’s behind us.”
Liverpool are high-flying with seven victories out of seven in the Premier League. They have also registered a victory in the League Cup and have a high chance of progressing to the knockout stages of the Champions League despite an early setback to Napoli.
