Júrgen Klopp explains Sadio Mané reaction

Sadio ManeLiverpool boss Jürgen Klopp has commented on Sadio Mane’s display of anger when he was substituted during today’s 3-0 win at Burnley.

The Reds’ winger was visibly angry after taking his place on the bench following his 85th minute substitution with the suggestion being that he was unhappy with Mohamed Salah’s failure to pass to him during an earlier Liverpool attack.

Team-mates James Milner and Firmino helped calm Mane down while the television cameras focused on the situation, although to be honest, it was much ado about nothing and the Liverpool manager agreed.

Klopp said: “He was upset, that was obvious. Sadio cannot hide his emotions and I like that but all sorted. We spoke about it and everything is fine.

“We are individuals, we are emotional. It was a situation in the game he wasn’t happy about. That’s completely fine.

“Would he do it in exactly the same manner again? Probably not. But it happens.

“He didn’t say any wrong words, it just looked a little bit different to how he looks usually. For me, it’s just a little story.”
