Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp played down striker Sadio Mane’s reaction after being substituted in the 3-0 win at Burnley, and then praised his forward line for helping the club achieve a 13-match winning run in the Premier League.
The incident involving the Senegal international occurred in the 85th minute with the Reds 3-0 up. As Mane walked off he made a gesture to the bench and continued to be animated as he sat down, seemingly frustrated at fellow forward Mohamed Salah’s decision not to pass to him in the opposition area moments earlier.
The German boss laughed off the incident, and said: “But it’s good eh? He was upset, it was obvious.
“Sadio cannot hide his emotions, 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 a game. What else could have happened? It was not a phone call.”
