Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has revealed how one of his stars reacted after they were dropped for the encounter with Watford.
The Reds maintained top spot on Wednesday after thrashing the Hornets 5-0 at Anfield, with Sadio Mane playing a starring role.
Club captain Jordan Henderson was left on the bench for the encounter, and Klopp reveals the player wasn't happy.
“They accept it. I don’t think they are happy,” Klopp said when asked about Henderson being dropped, according to the Mirror.
“Hendo played a lot of games this season then for a while had had an injury here and there – but he has played a really good season.
“I told him (he wasn't playing). He looked like he was not happy, but completely OK. I don't normally tell the players before the game they will not play.
“But because of the false stories about my reaction after the United game, I thought it made to sense to tell him it has nothing to do with - because it was nothing.”
