Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain reveals why Mohamed Salah rarely passes to his Liverpool teammates

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has come to Mohamed Salah's rescue after he was criticized for not passing to Sadio Mane noting that the Egyptian forward is not selfish.

Salah and Mane were involved in a public spat that led to the former Southampton forward being subbed off as he continued to vent his frustrations on the bench in the 3-0 win over Burnley. The two have since made up and were on the score sheet as Liverpool came from behind to beat Newcastle United 3-1.

In an interview with BBC Sport, Chamberlain was asked to complete the sentence,  "Mohamed Salah isn't selfish because...," Oxlade-Chamberlain joked: "Isn't selfish? Are you winding me up? The guy don't pass to us. Are you mad? Ask Sadio."

"No, Mo Salah isn't selfish because he's a goal scorer. He's gotta do that. We can't expect him to pass us the ball all the time and him to score loads of goals. The way he plays wins us games, so he's got to do what he's got to do. He scores, we win the game. I'm happy. Mo, do what you want!"
