“Sometimes we are selfish” – Mohamed Salah opens up about the relationship with Sadio Mane and “angry” Burnley spat – .

Mohamed Salah has opened up about his relationship with Liverpool teammate Sadio Mane.
The pair both played central roles in Liverpool Jurgen Klopp’s successes and have already contributed a total of 37 goals and assists this season.

However, the dynamic between the two attackers has come under closer scrutiny since 2019, after Mane made a frustrated figure against Burnley at Turf Moor when Salah chose to shoot rather than pass to the Senegalese.

Speaking of Mane and the game in question, the Egyptian dismissed any suggestion that the duo would not work well together.

“We are teammates on the pitch and in the locker room, we have a very professional relationship. We are both giving everything we have to help the team win, ”said Salah Egyptian broadcaster MBC Masr TV .

“Maybe we’re competing to show who’s the best, and that’s normal in any team and a legitimate right for any player, but at the end of the day we serve the team.

“Sometimes we are selfish in certain games, but nobody puts their interest above the team. It’s not intentional, either from me or from him, maybe there was some tension in a previous game and now everyone is trying to put everything together with that.

“It was in a match [referring to the Burnley match] where Sadio left the field in anger. It was the first time people had talked about this case and tied every bullet I didn’t pass him or that he didn’t pass me to this situation.

“But Sadio helped my goal two games ago and I’m helping too. “

The 29-year-old reiterated that he and Mane also spend time together off the pitch and “never had a disagreement or argument”.

Salah spoke on Egyptian TV ahead of Monday’s Ballon d’Or ceremony, where Liverpool’s number 11 finished in seventh place.

Despite a surprisingly low ranking for a player who is arguably the best in the world right now, Salah provided some insight into how he thinks he compares to other players.

“At the end of the day, it’s people’s opinions, but in my mind I’m the best player in the world, that’s what I tell myself. ” Wrong a dit .

“I can’t say that I don’t want to win the Ballon d’Or or the best of FIFA, of course I want to win one or the other.

“But if I don’t win either, that’s okay. Whatever I want, I usually get it. I know I’ll win one or the other later, I’m not worried.
