The Senegal international was furious with his African compatriot earlier this season after the Egyptian failed to pass the ball to him during their Premier League clash against Burnley.
After his removal from the match, Mane angrily left the pitch showing his displeasure towards the winger who greedily opted for goal instead of trying other options.
Daily Star reports that the Reds players and staff quickly played down the feud between the two after the match but some still did not accept that.
The former Southampton star has now re-affirmed his stance on the matter when asked by an Egyptian fan.
"He's a very, very good friend, Egyptian King!" Senegal forward said when asked Salah And when asked: "Not any problem?"
"What kind of problem? People, keep supporting Salah, he's doing everything for Egypt and keeps fighting for Egypt so see you soon in Egypt," Mane responded.
Liverpool winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain also spoke about his teammates saying the duo hardly pass the ball to them as much.
