Liverpool winger Sadio Mane stated that there is no issue between himself and his Liverpool teammate Mohamed Salah in response to the suggestions that the Reds’ front players are selfish and looking to outscore one another.
Mane has faced lots of criticism after Tottenham’s match at Wembley as everyone noticed that in the second half, Mane opted to pass to Naby Keita when Salah was in an arguably better position, prompting some fans to suggest that Mane deliberately ignored his attacking counterpart.
Speaking to LFC’s official programme, via the Liverpool Echo, Mane said: “As a football player this is normal. People will say ‘Yeah he should have passed’ [if you don’t score] but this is one thing I never mind.
“In football, you will find this [criticism] here and it will always be here, but I’m always focused on what I am doing for my team to win games.
“You always have to make decisions and I try to make the best decisions for the team. I’m not thinking about targets or ‘he should score’ or ‘I should score’.”
The Senegalese added:“Of course I love them and I honestly don’t mind whoever scores a goal. For me it is about the team, it doesn’t matter who scores.”
The Reds are currently on the top of the Premier League’s Table so, we hope that the Red’s fronts figure everything out because Liverpool has two important upcoming games. They will travel to face Chelsea at the Stamford Bridge this Saturday then they will face Napoli in the Champions League on Wednesday at the Anfield.
