Liverpool ace Salah explains Mane relationship: Sometimes we're selfish

Mohamed Salah insists he has no problem with Liverpool teammate Sadio Mane.

The pair have contributed a combined 37 goals and assists already this season, helping Liverpool mount a title challenge.

However, their relationship came under scrutiny in 2019 after Mane was reacted furiously to being snubbed by Salah against Burnley.

But Salah has dismissed suggestions he does not have a good relationship with his fellow Liverpool forward.

"We are team-mates on the pitch and in the dressing room, we have a very professional relationship. We both give everything we have to help the team win," Salah told Egyptian broadcaster MBC Masr TV .

"Maybe we're competing to show who is the best, and this is normal in any team and a legitimate right for any player, but in the end, we serve the team.

"Sometimes we're selfish in some plays, but no one puts their interest above the team. It's not intentional, whether from me or him, perhaps there was some tension in a previous match and now everyone tries to associate everything with it.

"It was in a match [referring to the Burnley match] where Sadio left the pitch angry. This was the first time people talked about this matter and linked every ball that I didn't pass to him or he didn't pass it to me to this situation.

"But Sadio assisted my goal two games ago and I assist him as well."
