Jurgen Klopp explains why Sadio Mane refused to shake his hand after Liverpool win over Man United

Jurgen Klopp explains why Sadio Mane refused to shake his hand after Liverpool win over Man United

Liverpool down Man United

Liverpool and Manchester United went head-to-head on Thursday evening.

The tie was of little importance to United, who have nothing left to play for in the league this term.

Liverpool, on the other hand, needed all three points to keep their Champions League hopes alive.

And, when all was said and done at Old Trafford, Jurgen Klopp and co. indeed went on to pick up a big win.

Bruno Fernandes actually fired the hosts into the lead after 10 minutes.

However, Diogo Jota then levelled things up after 34 minutes, before a Roberto Firmino brace either side of the break made it 3-1.

United did pull one back with just over 20 minutes to play, but a late Liverpool counter attack, finished by Mohamed Salah, put the result beyond doubt.

Klopp discusses Mane not shaking his hand

Following the tie, the assumption would of course have been that all involved with Liverpool would be in flying form, after getting one over on their rivals, and moving up to 5th.

However, one player clearly not too happy was Sadio Mane, who refused to shake Klopp’s hand post-match:

Klopp went on to discuss the incident in his post-match press conference, suggesting that it was brought on by the German’s failure to properly explain why he opted to drop Mane in favour of Jota:

“We made a decision in training and changed Diogo for Sadio. We usually explain it but I didn’t do that properly or whatever. That is all.”
