Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp has dismissed the hot exchange he had with the attacker, Sadio Mane as a very normal one.
Meanwhile, the incident took place at the full time of Saturday evening’s Premier League encounter between Liverpool and Chelsea at Anfield.
Mane was a surprise omission from the starting eleven squads of the Merseyside outfit in their feisty meeting with Chelsea.
Klopp only made a decision to bring the forward on as a substitute in the 89th minute of the showdown.
That, meanwhile, left Mane with little or no time at all to help Liverpool regain their lead, eventually playing draw.
Cameras thereafter caught Mane in a hot exchange of words with his manager, Klopp after the final whistle.
Despite that, though, the former Borussia Dortmund gaffer has revealed that the discussion was just a slight argument over positioning.
“I was shouting at him because he was in the center but no player is happy about that.
“You come on the pitch in three minutes and you feel like you already have 150 minutes in your legs.
“I wanted to sort it immediately,” Klopp disclosed to the club’s official website.
“He was not happy and he said to me Mo wanted to come into the position.
“But Mo had already 90 minutes in his legs so it would have made more sense that Sadio is closer.
“That is to the right wing and can then start the game from this position.
“It is nothing, we could have done it in the dressing room and it would have been the same thing,” Klopp concluded.
