You should have seen me as a player!’ – Liverpool boss Klopp laughs off Mane spat after Manchester United victory

The Reds manager insists there is no issue with his Senegalese star after he appeared to snub a handshake at Old Trafford on Thursday Jurgen Klopp has played down his row with Sadio Mane after Liverpool’s win over Manchester United, insisting he is “completely relaxed” about the issue. Mane was seen snubbing his manager’s attempt at a handshake following the Reds’ 4-1 win at Old Trafford on Thursday. The Senegal international had, it appears, been disappointed not to have started the game, with Roberto Firmino, Diogo Jota and Mo Salah preferred by Klopp. All three justified their selection, scoring in what could prove a vital victory in the race for Champions League qualification.

EPL: You Lack Respect for Doing that in Front of Camera – Owen blasts Mane over Klopp

  Former Liverpool striker, Michael Owen, has slammed Sadio Mane for showing a lack of respect to his manager, Jurgen Klopp, after the Reds’ Premier League 4-2 win over Manchester United on Thursday.

The German received a frosty reception from Mane, who had been left on the bench at the start of the match. Mane refused to shake Klopp’s hand and walked away from him, shaking his head.

EPL: Bruno Fernandes Criticize Man United Players after 4-2 Defeat to Liverpool

  Manchester United midfielder, Bruno Fernandes, has criticized the Red Devils players for not playing at their best against Liverpool following their Premier League 4-2 defeat against the Reds on Thursday.

Emery’s Villarreal End Arsenal’s Europa League Hopes

Arsenal's season was left in tatters as Villarreal held on for a 0-0 draw at the Emirates Stadium to secure a 2-1 aggregate victory and a place in the Europa League final against Manchester United. Following a 2-1 defeat in Spain in the first leg last week, the Gunners were sluggish as they tried to find the goal they so desperately needed, but they did have chances. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's volley struck the outside of the post in the first half and the Gunners skipper's header hit the inside of the upright and bounced out with 11 minutes remaining. The hosts, who threw on Gabriel Martinelli, Alexandre Lacazette and Willian in the closing stages, piled forward, but it was not to be their night as Unai Emery got the better of his former side, with Villarreal reaching their ...
