Senegalese star Sadio Mane has clarified rumours about an ongoing rivalry between him and Egyptian star player, Mohamed Salah.
Sadio Mane has insisted that he still has a good friendship with Mohamed Salah even after the Senegalese star left Liverpool to join Bayern Munich this summer.
Mane said this when he received the 2022 African Player of the Year honour in CAF, beating out his former team-mate for the award.
“People sometimes say there’s a rivalry between me and [Salah], but you know I don’t see myself having a rivalry with any player to be honest,” Mane said.
“We have good relations, we text each other. I think the media always try to [aggravate] things, he continued.
“You know I don’t just have [relationships] with one player, but with every player I’ve played with in the world,” Mane continued.
“You can ask whoever you want in the club, or wherever I go.
“I have good relationships with all players, he added.
