Sadio Mane was caught winding up Roberto Firmino after Al Nassr scored against Al Ahli.
On Friday night, the two former Liverpool stars reunited in the Saudi Professional League as their new clubs faced off.
Al Nassr came out 4-3 winners thanks to goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and Anderson Talisca. Franck Kessie, Riyad Mahrez and Firas Al Birakan scored for Al Ahli.
The Senegal international jumped on Firmino as his teammates celebrated, Firmino looked behind to see who it was before walking away. Mane subsequently walked towards his jubilant teammates.
Before their transfers to Saudi Arabia, Mane and Firmino played a huge part in Liverpool’s recent success under Jurgen Klopp.
During their time at Anfield, they got their hands on the Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup, League Cup, UEFA Super Cup, FIFA Club World Cup and the FA Community Shield.
After Firmino’s exit this summer, Mane was quick to pay tribute.
He said: “I think we did incredible things together. I am so grateful. I think Bobby is a special player. For me, wow, what a number nine. As a person I think he is the most positive guy.
“I learned a lot from him myself because sometimes when I'm not playing, on the bench or whatever, he knows me. He tells me to stay calm, he knows me... stay calm, positive, no problem. This kind of person is not easy to find... in the pitch, out of the pitch, I learned a lot from him.”
Mane added: “He has the ability to turn easily [with] the ball, not always playing the back-pass, he always tries to find solutions. I think he changed everything.”
