Liverpool forward Sadio Mane has spoken on the fight he had with club teammate Mohamed Salah last month.

The Senegalese international player was visibly angry after Salah failed to pass to him when he had a better opportunity to score during the Premier League clash with Burnley last month.

Their little fight overshadowed the emphatic 3-0 win recorded by Liverpool away from home against the Clarets.

Chris Wood (own goal), Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino got the goals for Liverpool during that game played at Turf Moor.

Both Mane and Salah have resolved the issue but the former touched on it on Tuesday during the pre-match press conference for the Champions League clash with Austrian side Red Bull Salzburg at Anfield on Wednesday night.

According to him, he was frustrated at that time as clearly shown when he was subbed off for Divock Origi shortly after the incident with Salah.

He went on to say that his target is for Liverpool to always score more goals just like what’s obtainable with Premier League rivals Manchester City who recently thrashed bottom club Watford 8-0.

Sadio Mane and Liverpool have some work to do ahead of their Champions League meeting with Red Bull Salzburg at home having lost their opening match in the competition.
