Mohamed Salah has revealed that the first question he asked Jurgen Klopp after signing for Liverpool was regarding whether or not he would be replacing Sadio Mane on the right-wing.

Salah joined Liverpool from Roma in the summer of 2017. He won a second successive Golden Boot in 2018-19 while also helping Jurgen Klopp’s side conquer the Champions League.

The former Chelsea flop has hit another 17 goals during Liverpool’s run to Premier League glory this term, two more than Mane.

The Reds star told beIN Sports: “He talked with me a lot and his future plan which made me very excited. My first question for him was ‘What about Sadio?’ as we are playing in the same position and he said that Mane will play on the left.”

Salah and Mane made headlines in September after appearing to clash during Liverpool’s 3-0 win over Burnley.

The Egyptian insists that the pair soon reconciled their differences for the good of Liverpool’s collective cause, as he added: “It didn’t take too much time. It was not a clash with its definite meaning it was just a situation in the match and we got over it quickly and assisted goals to each other.”
