Mane was confronted by Salah who asked ‘why are you angry?’ after Liverpool pair appeared to fall out at Burnley.

SADIO MANE revealed Mo Salah confronted him and asked 'why are you angry?' after the Liverpool pair appeared to fall out at Burnley.

Jurgen Klopp’s men were 3-0 up at Turf Moor in August when Salah was through on goal and went alone instead of squaring it to Mane.

The Egyptian was closed down and the scoring chance went begging.

Mane was furious with the wasted chance and raged as he was subbed off just moments later.

And the winger opened up about the situation with team-mate Salah, revealing to Canal Plus: "He said to me 'Sadio, why are you angry?'

“I told him 'You needed to give me the ball, Mo', to which he replied 'I didn't see you. You know I've got nothing against you'.

"I know that, but his reaction was a bit strange to me.”

The furious reaction was soon forgotten about, Mane revealed, as he insisted his relationship with strike partner Salah is strong on and off the pitch.

He said: "We talk on the phone sometimes, we text each other and we don't have a problem.

"So we talked, and everything was like before.

"We talked between ourselves, and then the manager called me into his office and we spoke. I told him it was already sorted and he was pleasantly surprised."

Liverpool skipper Jordan Henderson admitted after the win at Burnley he was a fan of the bust up, believing a bit of needle is no bad thing.

But the rest of the squad found it amusing, especially wind up Georginio Wijnaldum.

Mane said: "Everyone was taking the p*** out of us.

"[Georginio] Wijnaldum, who likes to tease people, waited until everyone was there, came up to me and asked out loud 'Mo Salah, why did Mane want to hit you?' and the whole team started laughing."
