    So he decided to wait until he was subbed off to rant at someone other than Salah about it? Is that not weird?

    I've thought Salah is too greedy for quite a while, maybe this wasn't the right hill to die on for Mane but it's probably a build up of frustration

    Klopp said in the press-conference that it's a perfect timing for it (the mini-controversy) to happen right before the international break, so "even if you write something about it, we'll be away and so will not read it." He said they talked about it in the dressing room and all is fine.

    Salah clearly got an earful from Klopp.

    And rightly so.

    Salah didn’t even look happy when Mane scores

    Nonsense - he was one of the first over to congratulate him today.

    Salah just loves scoring and is very single minded.

    What a piece of shit post. Salah got one assist? Firmino stole that ball!
    Salah created ONE chance and Mane didnt? One?! Wow.

    Storm in a teacup. It's one of those that will be forgotten about by the players tomorrow.

    Generally Salah does create more than Mané regardless of this game. Which is not a slight on Mané btw.

    Salah
    2017/18 - 14 assists
    2018/19 - 10 assists
    2019/20 (so far) - 2 assists

    TOTAL: 30 assists

    https://www.whoscored.com/Players/108226/History/Mohamed-Salah

    Mane

    2017/18 - 8 assists
    2018/19 - 2 assists
    2019/20 (so far) - 1 assists

    TOTAL: 11 assists

    Also the bit higher up about Salah selfishness cost us games last season is a load of bollocks. Think it’s been discussed already before last season on the forum but don’t remember any facts to back that up either.
    Can’t believe this thread is bigger than post match thread, Salah is selfish and so is Mané and it’s what makes them tick, drives them on. Hope neither of them changes and really doing Klopp would have had a go big go either post match after a big win, doesn’t sound like a Klopp thing to do especially so soon after.
    Loved Firmino video on the middle of both, he is on another level this season already...

    Salah is better than Mane I think we can all agree on that. Personally, I'm just refering to today's game, not the past.
    Also being the best player isn't an excuse to be selfish. In the end, the team comes first, right?

    I think he was frustrated by Mo being selfish, which he is himself at times, and also with being subbed off when he felt there were still more goals in the game. To me the reaction was more like 'why am I being taken off when somebody else is out there playing for themselves'

    I dont think selfishness in a striker is a bad trait, it keeps them sharp and hungry. Hunting for goals at 3-0 is not really an issue, Mane and Firmino had already scored and Mo wanted to get in on the act, if it was costing us points it would be different. Im sure they will both realise they could have handled it better and move on. The media will try and make a big story from this, its not. Not worth taking sides and having the fans get on players backs.

    4 from 4 top of the league, we are purring along,  this sort of shit isnt even on our radar.

    If it was only this match that we've seen him not pass when others are better placed I might be in more agreement with Drennan.  I do agree it's good to see him shooting with his right though.

    I don't really get this "it's good for strikers to be greedy and selfish." I prefer, it's good for strikers to make the right decisions to maximise goals for the team not themselves.

    Going back to one of the original points of my first post, Bobby really is the best in the world in this respect.

    He also doesn't score enough. If all three played like him we wouldn't score enough.

    It's only deemed greedy or selfish if they don't score. Had Mane missed he'd have had people say he was selfish for not passing to Bobby.
