The Senegalese forward has revealed exactly how he communicated to his Reds teammates after the incident

Liverpool's Sadio Mane has shed more light on his previous altercation with teammate Mohamed Salah.

The Senegal international was furious with the Egyptian for not passing the ball to him in the Reds 3-0 Premier League victory at Burnley on August 31.

"Everyone was taking the p*** out of us," the 27-year old told Canal Plus.

"[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.

"He [Salah] 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'," added Mane.

"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."

Mane was in action for the Teranga Lions during 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 improve his fitness for the crunch tie with fierce rivals Manchester United on Sunday.
