Sadio Mane has once again laughed off the Mo Salah dispute from the Burnley game earlier this season.
The Senegalese was asked about the incident by journalists yesterday, but smiled and played it down, letting everyone know that the pair are ‘really good friends’.
At Turf Moor, Liverpool cruised to a 3-0 win over Sean Dyche’s men, but in reality the score could have been far more impressive had our Egyptian flyer passed to Mane instead of shooting when the game was already tied up.
Mane has indicated that we should be more clinical when a team is there for the taking, in the same way Manchester City are.
“It’s football, you want to score more goals. Look at City winning 8-0 against Watford,” Mane told yesterday’s press conference, cited in the Mirror.
“For us it is important to score more. But it can happen. He didn’t see me and I was frustrated. We’re really good friends.”
With very little to separate Liverpool and City, goal difference could come into things this season, so Mane has a valid point.
That being said, City’s goal difference will likely be ridiculous, so it’s the points that count most!
Salah hasn’t scored in three games and neither has Mane, so both our wing-forwards will be desperate to get back on the score-sheet this evening in the Champions League versus Rb Salzburg.
