The 2022 African Player of the Year, Sadio Mane, says he still has a good friendship with Mohamed Salah even after the Senegalese star left Liverpool to join Bayern Munich this summer.
Mane spoke on the day he received the 2022 African Player of the Year honour in CAF, beating out his former team-mate for the award.
The newly-signed Bayern star, according to goal.com says he continues to text with Salah following his exit from Anfield.
He said, “People sometimes say there is a rivalry between me and [Salah], but you know I don’t see myself having a rivalry with any player to be honest.
“We have good relations, we text each other. I think the media always try to [aggravate] things.”
“You know I don’t just have [relationships] with one player, but with every player I’ve played with in the world. You can ask whoever you want in the club, or wherever I go.
“I have good relationships with all players.”
The Senegalese star joined the Reds from Southampton in 2016 and instantly became a star at Anfield. He scored a total of 120 goals during his six-year stay, with 90 of those goals coming in the Premier League.
