Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says he will speak to Sadio Mané after the Senegal forward snubbed him following Thursday’s 4-2 win at Manchester United.

Klopp left Mané on the bench for the first 74 minutes of the crucial Premier League clash, deciding to start Diogo Jota instead.

Following Mané ‘s brief substitute appearance, Klopp approached him at the final whistle to celebrate a crucial victory in the race to qualify for the Champions League.

But Mané refused to respond to the German and was caught on television walking towards the tunnel while shaking his head.

Speaking ahead of Sunday’s trip to West Bromwich Albion, Klopp said he was not angry with Mané but would speak to the 29-year-old about the show of dissent.

“If somebody shows me five million times respect and one time not, what is then more important?” Klopp said on Friday.

“The world is in a situation when you make this one time bigger than necessary. That’s unfortunately the case.

“If you had seen me as a player what I did out of emotion it was insane – and I’m a completely normal guy, but it happened to me.

“We will talk about it, then it will be sorted. That’s all.”
