Cape Town - Sadio Mane has revealed all the details on his dressing room bust-up with Liverpool team-mate Mohamed Salah after their Burnley altercation.

Mane lifted the lid on his furious reaction - after the Egyptian failed to pass to him - during a Premier League clash against Burnley in August.

The Senegalese international revealed that the two confronted each other in the dressing room at Turf Moor after and admitted that he found Salah's reaction to the incident 'strange'.

Mane told Canal Plus: 'He 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".

'I know that, but his reaction was a bit strange to me. We talk on the phone sometimes, we text each other and we don't have a problem.

'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.'

Although the pair claim that their spat isn't ongoing, the stats reveal their partnership is floundering even in a team with a perfect record this season.
