Salah On Mane Relationship Amid Tension Rumours

Liverpool star Mohamed Salah has opened up about his relationship with Sadio Mane amid rumours of tension between the pair over the past year.

The speculation that there is tension between the African duo started in 2019, during a match against Burnley at Turf Moor, after Mane was seemingly upset about not receiving a pass from Salah before he was substituted soon after.

However, the Egyptian has now insisted there have never been issues with the Senegalese star.

"We are teammates on the pitch and in the dressing room, we have a very professional relationship. We both give everything we have to help the team win," Salah told MBC Masr TV.

"Maybe we're competing to show who is the best, and this is normal in any team and a legitimate right for any player, but in the end, we serve the team.

"Sometimes we're selfish in some plays, but no one puts their interest above the team.

"It's not intentional, whether from me or him, perhaps there was some tension in a previous match and now everyone tries to associate everything with it.

"It was in a match [referring to the Burnley match] where Sadio left the pitch angry. This was the first time people talked about this matter and linked every ball that I didn't pass to him or he didn't pass it to me to this situation.

"But Sadio assisted my goal two games ago and I assist him as well.

"We spend a lot of time together and our relationship is good and very respectful, we never had a disagreement or a fight off the pitch.

"Sometimes I feel, in matches, that I did not get enough help, and the same is true of Sadio Mane, these are his feelings and I cannot control them, and the same applies to me."
