Liverpool star Mohamed Salah has poked fun at his supposed falling out with teammate Sadio Mane by posting a brilliant video of the pair mocked up as children.
Mane reacted angrily to not receiving a pass from Salah in the closing stages of the Reds’ 3-0 win at Burnley before the international break, and as he was then substituted he couldn’t hide his displeasure at the Egyptian as he pointed out his issue to club captain Jordan Henderson.
Reds boss Jurgen Klopp immediately played down the incident after the match at Turf Moor, simply putting it down to Mane’s passion and determination to do well.
But that didn’t stop fans and pundits fuelling suggestions that there was a rift between the Liverpool pair, who shared the Premier League Golden Boot along with Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang last season.
Neither player has seen fit to comment on the issue, with all suggestions from the Liverpool dressing room claiming that they were able to immediately laugh off the incident.
And ahead of Liverpool’s return to action at home to Newcastle United on Saturday, Salah seemed to show that there was no bad blood between him and his Senegalese teammate.
Reposting a video which included the logo ‘2 Sumo’, Salah shared mocked up footage of him and Mane as toddlers running towards each other and happily playing, with a beaming Klopp walking towards them in the background.
Reds fans online quickly ensured it went viral, with the tweet of the video – which Salah also posted to his Instagram Stories – gaining over 25,000 retweets and 115,000 likes at the time of writing.
Neither Salah or Mane went away on international duty over the past week, ensuring that both will be fit and ready to face the Magpies in Saturday’s 12.30pm GMT kick-off.
