Liverpool superstar Mo Salah will put rivalry aside by teaming up with Manchester City’s Riyad Mahrez to join beIN SPORTS’ World Cup punditry team next month.
The Egyptian, who the winner in Liverpool’s crucial 1-0 win over City on Sunday, will play no part in the tournament after his country were knocked out by a Sadio Mane-led Senegal side in a penalty shootout during the final qualifying round.
Mahrez’s Algeria fell at the final hurdle too, freeing both players up for an unlikely TV partnership.
There are few clubs likely to have as many players featuring at the World Cup as Liverpool and City, meaning that Salah and Mahrez will have plenty of opportunity to analyse their team-mates.
The domestic calendar will break for around a month-and-a-half in mid-November before returning just after Christmas following the conclusion of the World Cup.
