As the dust begins to settle on the reported feud between Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah, a Liverpool legend has added his thoughts to the debate.
Mane set tongues wagging last month when he reacted angrily to Salah's failure to pass to him when he was through on goal during Liverpool's Premier League win over Burnley.
The Senegalese forward's reaction on the club's bench sparked speculation that there was tension between the two African stars, although both players and manager Jurgen Klopp played down the incident.
One of Liverpool's greatest-ever strikers John Aldridge has now waded into the debate, and the Irishman believes there is nothing for Reds fans to be concerned about.
"It's just the way it is," Aldridge told talkSPORT when asked about the incident.
"They do look for each other; there was a passage of play on Saturday (against Leicester City) where there were three one-twos between them, and it would have been a marvellous goal.
"It's just been highlighted because of what happened at Burnley. But it is nonsense. They do look for each other, and they are both world class.
"If it was me, would I pass? No. That's why I scored 474 goals! Of course I would; if somebody is in a much better place, of course you play it across to them."
Mane has had a hand in 10 goals for the reigning European champions so far this season, with the Senegal star scoring eight and setting up two further strikes, while his Egyptian counterpart is one behind with six goals and three assists.
