Mane On His Heated Exchange With Klopp

Senegal international Sadio Mane has explained what happened between him and Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp after they were seen having a heated debate at the end of the Reds' 1-1 draw with Chelsea on Saturday.

Liverpool Boss Explains Argument With African Star

The former Southampton star came off the bench in the closing stages for the match, and after the final whistle, he was spotted exchanging some heated words with his boss, but Mane has now insisted it was a "friendly" chat.

"He asked me to play on the right side and one time I tried to ask for the ball in the number nine position," Mane told Sky Sports.

"Mo (Salah) was on my side, and the coach was shouting, 'Sadio, come on to the right side'.

"After the game, I told the coach it was more comfortable if you told Mo to come in because he was close to you.

"But it was friendly, and it was not because I was unhappy or something else. There was no problem, and I was just communicating and explaining that to him after the game."

The 25-year-old also said he was surprised he did not start the match against the Blues, but accepted his manager's decision.

"It was not easy for me. It was a difficult moment, but it's part of football, and it can happen," Mane added.

"It's important for me to come back now. I'm feeling very well."
