Our manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Sadio Mane communicated his displeasure towards Jurgen Klopp, after being benched for the most part of Liverpool's 4-2 win over Manchester United at Old Trafford earlier this week.
Roberto Firmino scored a brace while a goal each from Diogo Jota and Mohamed Salah ensured Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford's efforts become mere consolations.
The victory was the German manager's first against the Red Devils on their home turf since he was appointed their manager in 2015.
Mane replaced Jota in the 74th minute and when Klopp tried shaking him after the game, the Senegalese simply ignored him.
He had a one-on-one chance with United goalkeeper Dean Henderson but failed to convert the glorious chance.
Meanwhile, the 53-year-old manager has insisted that there's no issue between them in spite of the winger's unprofessional action.
The former Borussia Dortmund handler was quoted by SunSport speaking to Sky Sports after the match saying:
"That's no problem. Yesterday I made a late decision in training to decide [to pick] Diogo, the boys are used to me explaining things but there was actually no time for that. That's all, it's all fine."
Meanwhile, the Merseyside outfit remains outside of the top four with just three games left to play this season and they will give all they can to qualify for Champions League next term.
It was earlier reported that Liverpool recorded their first win at Old Trafford in seven years following a 4-2 thrashing of Man United in an entertaining Premier League fixture.
Despite going behind earlier on in the match the Reds came back to pull off a stunning win over their fiercest rivals in the English topflight division.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side got on the scoresheet after a Bruno Fernandes' shot was deflected into the by Nathaniel Phillips but it counted for the Portuguese midfielder. 1-0 it was.
