Liverpool: Fans bemoan Mohamed Salah’s apparent selfishness

Liverpool’s 3-0 win over Burnley on Saturday was overshadowed by Sadio Mane’s angry reaction upon being substituted towards the end of the game.

The Senegal forward, who scored the Reds’ second at Turf Moor, was visibly annoyed when he went to the substitutes’ bench in the 85th minute and appeared to gesture at Mohamed Salah for not passing to him a few minutes earlier. [via Sky Sports]
