The row between Mo Salah and Sadio Mane is over, but according to RobbieFowler apparently its all part of being a prolific striker.

There appeared to be some bad blood between the two Liverpool strikers when the team made the trip to Burnley.

The Reds won 3-0, but Mane was substituted in the second half and was far from impressed with Salah’s selfishness.

While Liverpool insiders claimed that there was nothing to it, Sane’s comments confirm that there was perhaps something. But in the interview with French TV network Canal+, he confirmed the pair are all good now.

.”With Salah? It’s forgotten.”

“These are things that happen in football. Sometimes you have to say things face to face.”

“Sometimes it happens that I am not given the pass.”

“But we have reconciled and become the good friends we were before.”

Former Liverpool striker Robbie Fowler has now weighed on the matter. In an interview with the Mirror, he calls is nothing but nonsense.

Fowler said:

“I’ve ­honestly never heard such nonsense as the stuff that has surrounded this so-called spat between Sadio Mane and Mo Salah.”

“Everyone commenting and talking nonsense about being ‘greedy’ or destroying team spirit, have they never watched football before?”

He believes the selfish attitude of a striker is what makes them the best at what they do.

He added:

“Because you can’t be a ­top-class goalscorer without total belief you will score.”

“That’s what goalscorers do.”

“They train for it, their whole week on the ­training ground is spent practising, visualising, working out how to score for every position and the best always believe they can score.”

“From five yards, from 20, from 40. Wherever. Even if it’s easier to pass for a tap-in.”

Apparently, if mane and Salah are going to continue their potent form we better get used to this.

“I look at Salah’s record and it tells me he’s going to keep doing it.”
