Oxlade-Chamberain: Mo Salah and Sadio Mane don't pass the ball often


The England international believe both Liverpool stars are more focus on shooting and scoring goals

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has admitted his team-mates Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane have one common dislike of 'passing the ball' in football matches.

Salah and Mane have been in superb form this season, scoring a combined total of 14 Premier League goals to fire Klopp's men eight points clear at the top of the table.

Speaking at the launch of 'Roar! for Diversity', a new resource and competition for 7 to 11 year olds from the Premier League and the England and Wales Cricket Board, Oxlade-Chamberlain said of his two Liverpool colleagues: "Something that Sadio and Mo have in common is that they don't pass us the ball much, that would be the main thing – they like shooting a lot!.

"They're both from Africa and they're both Muslims. They're two players in our team that have different periods of the season when they have Ramadan which is a testing time for them because they don't get to eat and drink at the same time as the rest of the team.

"So we have to understand to try and help them and the coaching staff does that very well."

Speaking about the diversity in Liverpool's title-chasing squad, the midfielder added: "The most successful teams bring together players with individual skills and qualities to be able to achieve success as a group.

"The Liverpool dressing room is home to players from more than 20 countries. Everyone brings something different to the atmosphere on and off the pitch.

"The Premier League is for everyone. Using sport to inspire a generation of young fans to celebrate diversity is something I'm proud to be supporting."
