Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp revealed the reason for the anger of Senegalese Sadio Mane, after he left the stadium, during the broad victory over Crystal Palace (7-0) on Saturday evening, in the 14th round of the Premier League.
Mane scored a goal in the first half of the match, but he left the stadium 12 minutes after the start of the second half, to be replaced by the Egyptian star Mohamed Salah, who Klopp preferred not to throw him as a basic, in application of the principle of rotation.
And winning his flag by replacing him, Sadio Mane expressed his displeasure with the decision, and complained upon leaving the stadium, despite his handshake with Jurgen Klopp and Mohamed Salah.
Klopp said in statements to the “BT Sport” network after the end of the match: “He was not angry because Mo (Salah) participated, perhaps because he did not remain on the field after a free kick, you can not do anything, they are human, but after the match he acted well, And everything was fine.”
About the match, he said: “It was about serious work. There was a lot of counter-attack by Crystal Palace in the first half, and when we needed extra effort to defend, we were decisive, and after the first half (3-0) the match was not over, but we controlled the match. We scored great goals.”
He concluded: “The young men are able to do this, but it is something that does not happen every week, today it worked, it is a very difficult period, and the young men should be proud of winning. We will undergo a rest day tomorrow, then prepare for the West Brom match, and the goal difference was good today because of the funny loss. In front of Aston Villa.”
