Ian Wright has suggested Sadio Mane’s outburst against Burnley last weekend was the culmination of a long period of frustration.
That has eased any concern among Reds fans of a potential rift between the two forwards.
But Wright isn’t convinced, having come to conclusion that Mane has long been angered by Salah’s perceived selfishness.
“This is the point I’ve got with this – that has been building up for a long time,” he told BBC Radio 5 Live‘s Football Daily, as quoted by the Star.
“For him to get that angry in the space of four games tells me that that is deep. He’s too angry too quickly.
“I’ve watched games where I’ve thought ‘he could’ve squared him in there’.”
Wright is admittedly well-qualified to speak about a striker’s relentless appetite for goals and the impact it might have.
But the signs from the camp are that Mane has quickly cooled down, and we can be sure that Jurgen Klopp will intervene if there’s any danger of that friction cropping-up again.
