Sadio Mane has rubbished rumours that him and Mohamed Salah are rivals.
Mane insists that he still has a good friendship with Salah despite the rumours of rivalry between the pair during their time together at Liverpool.
The Senegalese told Goal:
People sometimes say there’s a rivalry between me and [Salah], but you know I don’t see myself having a rivalry with any player to be honest.
We have good relations, we text each other. I think the media always try to [aggravate] things.
You know I don’t just have [relationships] with one player, but with every player I’ve played with in the world. You can ask whoever you want in the club, or wherever I go.
I have good relationships with all players.
Bayern Munich forward Mane was on Thursday named the 2022 African Player of the Year ahead of Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah and Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy.
