Jurgen Klopp must decide on Sadio Mane
Liverpools Hopes of qualifying for next season’s UEFA Champions League were boosted when Jürgen Klopp beat Manchester United at Old Trafford in the Premier League with four to two goals. The game that was originally moved in half Manchester United Protests are proving fruitful for the Reds.
The Merseyside Club won against Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s men and did so with vigor. Two goals in both halves and Jürgen Klopp’s Liverpool now feel they have a chance.
With a Nat Philips own goal early in the game, Liverpool were hard hit. However, they did not collapse under pressure and took advantage of the opportunities that presented themselves.
Diego Jota scored the first goal with an exquisite shot after Nat Philips’ call for a penalty went unanswered. Roberto Firmino did well to head the ball past Dean Henderson and get her into halftime.
Roberto Firmino capitalized again early in the second half when Dean Henderson spilled the ball and the Brazilian striker took the opportunity. Egyptian King Mohammad Salah put the match to bed when he got one on one with the goalkeeper and ended it.
This win will give a big mental boost to the Liverpoolers who have had a tough time over the past few months. It was a much needed victory before a trip to West Bromwich Albion and they will now feel confident about qualifying.
Jürgen Klopp has problems with Sadio Mane::
It was reported that there was an argument between Sadio Mane and Jürgen Klopp. After the game against Manchester United, Sadio Mane did not recognize Jürgen Klopp after the game. The trainer wanted to shake his hand and that was ignored.
Many fans have since used social media to analyze this interaction. Some suggest that this could be the end of the road for Sadio Mane in Liverpool. On the other hand, some say it was done in the heat of the moment.
Jürgen Klopp, however, downplayed this exchange with the player and said that Mane is expected to return. You will next face West Bromwich Albion Premier League.
With all three points – Mohammed Salah, Diego Jota and Roberto Firmino – Jürgen Klopp gives a headache. Who to drop for Sadio Mane? But it looks like Diego Jota will have to make room for Mane.
“If someone shows me respect five million times and once they don’t, what is more important?” Klopp said on Friday. The world is in a situation where you do this bigger than necessary. Unfortunately that is the case.
If you’ve seen me as a player, what I did out of emotion, it was crazy – and I’m just a normal guy, but it happened to me. We will talk about it, then it will be sorted. That’s all.”
