If you were to ask anyone who the stars at Liverpool were these days, the names of Sadio Mané and Mohamed Salah would be the most recurring.

The attacking duo have been absolutely tremendous under Jürgen Klopp since their respective arrivals at the club, scoring 210 goals between them (92 for the Senegalese and 118 for his Egyptian teammate) and helping the club become English champions for the first time in 30 years.

They are likely to be there for a few years yet, unless some major changes are ordered by their German manager, much to the delight of Liverpool fans, who have become accustomed to their presence in a red shirt and deadly partnership on the pitch.

Despite both incredibly direct and efficient in front of goal, there is one major difference between them, according to Egyptian journalist Amr Mohamed, who spoke to Afrique Sports.

He said: “The difference between Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mané is that Mohamed is like a machine, unlike the Senegalese, who plays just to play. An efficient player must be like a machine”.

Then asked if he felt that made the Egyptian better than his teammate, he earned himself a few splinters by sitting nicely on the fence by adding: “Salah and Mané are two high level players and each have their particularities. Africa is proud of their duo in any case”.
