AFCON 2021: Mane finally reveals what he told Salah before penalty miss

Senegal forward, Sadio Mane has finally opened up on his conversation with Mohamed Salah before missing a penalty in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations final.

The Teranga Lions fluffed the chance to take the lead in the 10th minute, after Mane’s spot kick was saved by Egyptian goalkeeper, Gabaski.

Before the save, Salah appeared to give his compatriot some advice, with Mane also getting involved in the dialogue.

Speaking to Que Golazo YouTube channel, Mane recounted the banter between him and his Liverpool teammate.

“He [Salah] said: ‘why did you come to see the goalkeeper?’ and I said ‘no because you’ve been talking to him and I’m sure you will play mind games, so, I will play mind games as well’.

“I saw him talking and I’m sure he was not saying anything much, so he was just trying to play mind games and I want to be more fun than them, so I go ‘Mo, I will put it in the right side, tell him I will put it in the right side’.

“We were talking about this yesterday and laughing about it, it was quite funny,” Mane said.
