Back in August, Sadio Mane and Mo Salah had a falling out during the victory at Burnley.
Mane was annoyed that Salah didn’t square the ball to him, and it led to reports of a rift between the pair of Liverpool forwards.
But Jurgen Klopp has explained how private conversations with the pair diffused the tensions between the duo at the start of a campaign which has progressed excellently.
In Sports Illustrated, as per the Daily Mail, Klopp said: “In the world of football, it looks so big; it’s like, “Oh, my god, how can you do it?” But I just spoke to them.”
TBR’s View – Rival fans made a mountain out of a molehill
It was an easy narrative for rivals and those in search of a story to write; Salah, the selfish frontman in search of goal records frustrating Mane, more of a team player.
But sides need different personalities in order to prosper and Mane and Salah clearly have an exceptional relationship, banging in the goals once again this season.
Klopp has great command of his squad and has brought in the right types of personalities.
There are clearly no rifts in the camp as the rampage towards a first Premier League title continues.
