“He [Salah] mentioned to me ‘Sadio, why are you angry?’ I told him ‘You required to give me the ball, Mo’, to which he replied ‘I did not see you. You know I’ve got nothing at all against you’,” added Mane.

“We talked amongst ourselves, and then the manager named me into his workplace and we spoke. I told him it was currently sorted and he was pleasantly shocked.”
Mane was in action for the Teranga Lions through the international break, winning a penalty in the 1-1 draw with Brazil in Singapore which Famara Diedhiou converted.
Salah was not involved with Egypt during the week and is aiming to strengthen his fitness for the crunch tie with fierce rivals Manchester United on Sunday.
