Liverpool striker Mane reveals Salah crunch talks

Liverpool striker Sadio Mane says he's cleared the air with Mohamed Salah after his Burnley blow-up.

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.

Then, 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.

The pair returned to action on Saturday and they were both on the scoresheet as the Reds secured a comeback 3-1 victory over Newcastle at Anfield.

"With Salah? It's forgotten," Mane said to Canal+. "These are things that happen in football. Sometimes you have to say things face to face.

"Sometimes it happens that I am not given the pass.

"But we have reconciled and become the good friends we were before."
