Sadio Mane has sent his Liverpool teammates Mohamed Salah and Naby Keita a strong message as the Africa Cup of Nations finals gets underway in Cameroon.
The three Reds are set to be rivals during the continental showpiece, with each of them set to represent their home countries.
Mane and Senegal will be aiming to win the tournament for the first time this year after they missed out on it in the last edition hosted in Egypt as they lost to Riyad Mahrez's Algeria in the final.
Salah and Keita, meanwhile, will also be aiming to lift the title with Egypt and Guinea respectively.
However, Mane has appeared to suggest Senegal are strong favourites and after sending both Salah and Keita a strong warning.
In a video he shared on social media, the former Southampton forward warned the Lions of Teranga will beat either Egypt or Guinea by a 1-0 scoreline in the final.
"I have a special message for my good friends... Naby Keita and Mo Salah," said Mane in a video message shared on social media.
"Unfortunately I can't play against two teams in the final, so I have to play against one [hinting Senegal will reach the final]."
"I want to say good luck to all of you, I'll see you soon," he added.
Senegal, who have been pooled in Group B of the competition will kick off their campaign with a clash against Zimbabwe on Monday, January 10.
