'Mane Outburst Shows Deep-Rooted Issue With Salah'

Sadio Mane's touchline outburst made the headlines last weekend, and although Liverpool tried to downplay the incident, it has now been claimed there could be a deeper problem between Mane and Mohamed Salah.

The Senegalese striker exploded after being substituted in the Reds' comfortable 3-0 win over Burnley last Saturday.

Despite finding the back of the net in the game, Mane was seemingly upset with Salah for not passing the ball to him in a great position in the second half.

It has since been reported that the pair laughed off the incident after the final whistle, but Arsenal legend Ian Wright believes there is a deeper issue between the two.

"I think, when you look at how angry (Mane was), he's seething," Wright said, as quoted by the Daily Express.

"I think that's something that goes back, that's not something after four games that you're that upset; it goes back, you can see how angry he is.

"I believe this chance, he's just got to give it to him.

"It just festers in the end and it's got to the point where Mane's come off and he's absolutely furious.

"You could see it there, he's absolutely furious simply because he's saying 'I'm in, why don't you play it to me? Play me the ball, play me the ball'."

While the latest international break is under way, Mane and Salah have stayed in Liverpool to rest after their exploits in 2018/19 as well as at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

The Reds' next match is against Newcastle United at home, and it remains to be seen whether or not there will still be some tension between Jurgen Klopp's African superstars, who are yet to comment on the incident.
