Mohamed Salah leaves out Sadio Mane in dream team, picks Messi, Ronaldo, Firmino

Earlier, Sports Brief had reported how Mohamed Salah made some surprise picks in his five-a-side team.

The Liverpool star was asked to pick his teammates by Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand. Salah surprisingly opted for Robert Firmino over Sadio Mane in his team that was laden with attackers.

There have always been unconfirmed reports about a cold war between Salah and Mane.

Liverpool’s head coach Jurgen Klopp has in the past denied rumours of such a rift as the two have continued to produce impressive numbers for Liverpool upfront. Mane has however expressed his desire to quit Anfield this summer with Bayern Munich leading the race to sign him.
