Mane snubs Klopp handshake

Jurgen Klopp dismissed his post-match clash with Sadio Mane on Thursday as "no problem" and claimed relations between them are "all fine". The Liverpool manager attempted a handshake with the winger following a 4-2 win over Manchester United, but Mane shook his head and stormed past him. Mane was kept out of the lineup against the Red Devils in favour of Diogo Jota, who scored the Reds' first goal of the evening. Klopp identified poor communication about the benching as the reason for Mane's anger; he said he failed to properly inform the Senegalese forward of his starting XI decision ahead of time.
