Liverpool’s Sadio Mane on his spat with Salah: ‘Everyone was taking the p*ss out of us’

Mane & Salah’s spat

Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah had a bit of a spat earlier this season, when Liverpool faced off with Burnley.

During the game, as shown in the image below, Mane was wide open in the Burnley penalty area, with Salah in possession of the ball.

Salah would opt not to pass to Mane, though, and afterwards, when Mane had been taken off, the Liverpool winger looked visibly upset.

Mane has since spoken out about the incident, and insisted that it is forgotten.

However, Mane has now revealed how everyone was ‘taking the p*ss’ out of the pair for the Burnley incident.

Mane spoke specifically about Georginio Wijnaldum teasing the duo:

 “Everyone was taking the p*ss out of us.

“[Georginio] Wijnaldum, who likes to tease people, waited until everyone was there, came up to me and asked out loud, ‘Mo Salah, why did Mane want to hit you?’ and the whole team started laughing.” As quoted by Goal.
