Klopp was quick to play down any issue and insisted that there was nothing wrong with the gesture from Mane.

"No, no problem.
“Yesterday I made a late decision in training to decide for Diogo. The boys are used to me explaining things usually but there was actually no time for that and that's all. It's all fine."

However former United captain is of the opinion of exchanging pleasantries with opponents even with legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

And the Irishman was in support of Mane's behaviour claiming it was normal for a player of his status in the Liverpool team to feel that way.
