Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane hit the headlines over the international break for reasons other than their world-class footballing prowess.

It followed an outburst by Mane during Liverpool's 3-0 win over Burnley which appeared to centre on Salah not passing him the ball for a golden scoring opportunity.

Reaction to the incident spread far and wide with all manner of former players, pundits and fans speculating there was some sort of deep lying issue between the pair.

Liverpool themselves made light of the situation and the ECHO revealed that both players were each other's favourite team-mate to set up and pass to so there was no need to worry.

Now Salah has gone above and beyond to totally put any speculation about his relationship with Mane to bed after he posted a viral video of two young boys running to greet and hug each other in the street.

The video, which went viral earlier this month, had the heads of Mane and Salah superimposed onto the two youngsters and man in the background was transformed into a smiling Jurgen Klopp .

Reds fans certainly knew that there was no animosity between the pair and now the world will be set right about the true nature of their clearly budding relationship.
