Sadio Mane was laughing and joking in the dressing room after his outburst at Mohamed Salah during Liverpool’s win over Burnley.

Liverpool beat Burnley 3-0 with Mane and Roberto Firmino already on the scoresheet, but Salah failed to find the net.

Salah passed up the chance to tee Mane up for his second late in the game, opting to shoot, and his teammate was fuming with that decision when he substituted just minutes later.
