It’s one to watch. Previously it boiled over a bit in the famous incident where Mane was fuming on the bench and it looks to me like Mo is a little too concerned with the golden boot. You have to have a team first ethic, but the other side of that coin, for strikers at least, is a certain selfish streak that makes the best ones so good. With the title won and the games running out, Mo may be guilty of slightly veering toward a personal goal.Question - do we need to be concerned with Salah and Mane? I’m not sure that they like each other that much and Is there going to be an element of Mane Wanting to leave to get out of Salahs shadow?
I don’t think there’s animosity between them or anything like that, but they don’t seem massively close either. Over the years plenty of teams have been successful with players who didn’t get along. I don’t think I would go so far as to say they don’t get along, but it seems to me there’s a little something there.
It takes a strong and skillful leader to manage the situation and thankfully in Klopp, we have that in abundance.
