Crystal Palace vs Liverpool: Klopp reacts to Mane’s angry reaction to being replaced by Salah

Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp, has reacted to Sadio Mane’s frustrated reaction to being replaced by Mohamed Salah with more than half an hour remaining following the Reds’ 7-0 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Klopp insisted that there was no issue with Mane after the full-time whistle, adding that the Senegal forward was not angry that Salah replaced him but because he didn’t stay on the pitch until after the free-kick.

Liverpool defeated Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park Stadium, thanks to goals from Takumi Minamino (1), Sadio Mane (1), Roberto Firmino (2), Jordan Henderson (1) and Mohamed Salah (2) ensured

“He [Mane] was not angry because Mo [Salah] came on, he was not happy because maybe he did not stay on the pitch until after the free-kick,” Klopp told BT Sport.

“You can’t play football like this if you’re just a soldier and do everything the bosses say, they do what I say, but they’re human beings and react in a specific way.

“After the game, Sadio was completely fine, it’s all good.”
