  • Sadio Mane leaves Liverpool for Bayern Munich after six years on Merseyside
  • Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane enjoyed a sparkling collaboration together
  • However, it was not without controversy with a notable failure at Burnley

Mohamed Salah paid tribute to Sadio Mane after his move to Bayern Munich was confirmed on Wednesday afternoon and said he will be ‘missed’ by everyone at Liverpool.

Salah, who arrived at Liverpool a year after Mane, posted his tribute to his former team-mate on social media, declaring that their time together had been ‘quite a ride’.

The Egyptian wrote: ‘It was quite a ride! Thanks for all the good times and I wish you all the best in your new adventure!’

“You will be missed by all of us,” he added.

Salah and Mane’s time together at Liverpool under Jurgen Klopp proved to be one of the most successful eras in the Reds’ recent history.

Together they were influential in winning the club’s sixth Champions League crown and reaching two more finals.

Salah and Mane were also the club’s first and second top scorers respectively in the club’s first ever Premier League win and the club’s first league title since 1990.

In the past season, the relationship between Salah and Mane continued to flourish. The club reached the finals of three cup competitions – winning the FA Cup and League Cup – finishing one point behind the league winner, Manchester City.

However, their time together on Merseyside has not often been entirely rosy with the two attackers having a high-profile failure in 2019.

Mane disagreed that Salah not square him the ball at Turf Moor, when that seemed the better option for the team to add to their goal tally.

Liverpool were leading 3-0 at the time, but Mane was deeply concerned about Salah’s inability to pass him and appeared to be still furious about the incident some time after the game ended.

Speaking to Canal Plus, Mane said of his interaction with Salah after the match: “He said to me: ‘Sadio, why are you angry?’ I said to him, “You had to give me the ball, Mo”, to which he replied, “I haven’t seen you. You know I have nothing against you.”

“I know, but his reaction was a little strange to me. We sometimes talk on the phone, we text each other and we have no problem.

“We talked, and then the manager called me into his office and we spoke. I told him it had already been arranged and he was pleasantly surprised.’

Despite that minor issue, Salah and Mane otherwise had a healthy relationship at Liverpool. The two players are by far the club’s top two goalscorers since Salah’s arrival in 2017.

Since Salah’s return to the Premier League in 2017, the two players have scored an astonishing 195 goals in the competition alone.
