DOHA  Senegalese forward Sadio Mane has dismissed any speculation of bad blood between himself and Liverpool teammate Mohamed Salah. 

Both players are turning out for the club World Cup currently underway in Doha where Liverpool will be contesting the final against Flamengo.

There were reports of a breakdown between the pair after Mane seemed to be angered with Salah, after he failed to deliver a pass against Burnley in the English Premier League dating back to August 31.

Mane was asked about his relationship with the Egyptian Salah, to which he responded: “[We’re] Very, very good friends. [He’s] The Egyptian King!" 

The 27-year-old further stated: "What kind of problem? People, keep supporting Salah. He is doing everything for Egypt and he keeps fighting for Egypt, so see you soon in Egypt!"
