The Senegalese reveals real reason he was angry with Mohamed Salah when he failed to pass during a routine win at Burnley.

Liverpool striker, Sadio Mane, has opened up on his relationship with Mohamed Salah following the Senegal striker's public outburst at Burnley.

The forward was aggrieved when Salah failed to pass to him during the Reds routine 3-0 win at Turf Moor last month.

Mane's subsequent outburst - as he was substituted in the second half - left everyone believing there may be a rift between the deadly duo.

But speaking to the press ahead of Liverpool's clash, the 27-year-old put to bed any rumors of an underlying spat, admitting "it is behind us".

Mane, who has scored four goals in the Premier League this term, said: "Good question. I think things can happen in football. I feel a little bit frustrated because it's football you want to score more goals.

"You can see Man City eight, six, seven nil. You can see it, no? So, for me and for the team it is really important for us to score as many goals as we can.

"But it can happen because he didn't see me and I was a bit frustrated. But we come out [of it] as really, really good friends."

"Yesterday I said 'Gini, tell Mo why Sadio wanted to beat you in the Burnley game'. Gini is so funny, I always say these kinds of things," he added.

"You know it is all forgotten, it is behind us."

Mane stated that he has no problem with "good friend" Mohamed Salah, and is instead just focusing on the pair performing well for Liverpool.

Before his move to Southampton in 2014, Mane came through the ranks at RB Salzburg.

When asked about his former club, the Champions League winner said: "The league is a good league. I played there for two and a half years and met great people there in a great club. As a human being, I learned a lot.

"They are a really, really good team and are doing well and they need respect because they are top of the group.

"We are expecting a very, very difficult game tomorrow. We will do everything possible to get a positive result."
