Liverpool Manager, Jurgen Klopp has condemned the accusation by Pep Guardiola that Sadio Mane is a diver.
Guardiola recently accused Mane of being diver in the game between Liverpool and Aston Villa on Saturday. Mane gave assist for the first goal and later headed the winning goal at a stoppage time.
Pep speaking at Liverpool victory against Aston Villa said “Mane’s diving, sometimes he has this talent to score incredible goals in the last minute”, Sky Sports reports.
But Klopp reacted to this furiously and said he wasn’t sure if Pep spoke about Mane or the team entirely.
“I don’t even know whether he about Mabwsays this about one of my players? I am not even 100% sure if he spoke about Mabe or us in general. I didn’t hear Sadio’s name.
“I don’t know how he could have known about any incident in the game so quickly after their game against Southampton.
