Former Liverpool striker Michael Owen believes the latest spat between Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah is healthy for the moment. However, he believes something is going on between them.
Last season the pair clashed when Salah again opted to shoot rather than pass when Mane voiced his frustration to manager Jurgen Klopp.
Speaking while as a pundit for DAZN, Owen was not too bothered.
“This is brilliant play from Salah. Not only is it a great turn, but then he cuts across his man,” Owen said. “Of course Sadio Mane is at the back post expecting a little tap-in.
“He definitely says something to Salah, as we see here – and then there’s a reaction – so there’s still something there. I expect it and it’s probably healthy at that point, at the moment. But if it bubbles over into anything else then it’s not healthy.
“But I think it’s healthy that both players are really desperate to score. We’ve seen it before and I don’t think it’s worth getting too carried away at the moment. But you can see it’s still there.”
