Ian Wright: Mane’s poor form is down to Salah jealousy

Arsenal legend Ian Wright believes that Liverpool attacker Sadio Mane’s poor form is caused by jealousy of team-mate Mo Salah’s starring role for the Anfield club.

The pundit told BBC 5 live :

“Do you think there is a bit of jealous there? With Mo Salah?

“He just looks a little bit perturbed by it.

“Mo Salah has come in and – remember when Mane went to the Africa Cup of Nations and everyone was like ‘oh it’s over now, we can’t replace Mane’?

“And now they’ve got Salah and he’s been on the bench.”

Salah of course, has been in sensational form for Jurgen Klopp’s side and is currently the Premier Leagues top scorer with 14 goals in just 16 appearances.

Mane, to be fair, started the season in fine form, but ever since his absence from the team after his red card against Man City in September, he has struggled to hit the heights of his debut campaign at Anfield.
