Sadio Mane appeared to shout towards the Liverpool bench, after being taken off in Liverpool’s 3-0 win over Burnley, in reaction to Salah’s earlier decision to shoot rather than pass to the Senegal international.
And Wenger certainly believes Mane had a point and that Salah is “too obsessed” with scoring goals, though the Frenchman did compare the Egyptian star with a certain Lionel Messi.
“He [Salah] has similarities with Messi,” Wenger told beIN Sports. “He must find the consistency of Messi.
“I find he’s a good finisher but Messi has the complete thing, he gives the final ball as well.
“Salah is a bit obsessed with finishing himself.
“That’s a dimension he’ll get certainly, when he grows a little bit older, to find the moment when you have to give the ball and when you have to finish.
“But I like him very much, he has huge potential. Mane as well.”
Wenger is currently not in management, but has not ruled out returning to take the helm of a national team.
