Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp plays down Sadio Mane handshake snub

Sadio Mane was unhappy with boss Jurgen Klopp after the game.

Liverpool winger Sadio Mane refused to shake hands with Jurgen Klopp at the end of the game.

Jurgen Klopp believes it was an emotional reaction from the Senegal international and their relationship is built on respect and this incident won’t impact that.

“I cannot make a bigger story of it as it is. Football is an emotional game and everyone expects from us to control our emotions always but it doesn’t work out always, that’s the case,” said Klopp to Friday’s pre-match press conference ahead of Sunday’s trip to West Brom.

“It happened to me as a player, it happened to other players when I was their coach.

“We had so far no real chance to talk about it but we will and there will be nothing left. Everything will be fine.

“Do you want these things to happen? No. But it’s not the first time in my life and I’m afraid to say it won’t be the last time.

“Even when I speak about that already I can see the headlines but that’s not the case. I am completely relaxed about that.”
