Klopp on Salah after Mane outburst

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has opened up on Mohamed Salah's style of play after the recent outburst of teammate Sadio Mane.

Mane, 27, appeared to lose his temper out of frustration against Burnley this weekend after Salah opted not to pass him the ball while he occupied a goalscoring position.

And his outburst was more evident five minutes before the end of regulation time as Klopp substituted the Senegal international.

While the incident has since been played down by a teammate who claims there were no confrontations in the dressing room, Klopp has share his opinion on the matter.

 
"I could describe five or six situations where everyone thought, 'pass it, pass it, pass it' and then he scored," Klopp said, as per the Liverpool Echo.
 
"So, that is the freedom of the player. The boys have to make these decisions: pass the ball, don’t pass the ball.
 
"We can make these mistakes. You can lose the ball and miskick the ball, or sometimes you cannot see your team-mate. It is not that you ignore him.
 
"Sometimes to us it looks like you must see him, but you don't. It is not a big challenge, but of course with a striker always you can have this.
 
"What you do depends on the situation. We will leave it 100 per cent because we won 3-0 and everyone goes away in different directions [for international duty].
 
"In one week, I don't think I will talk about it again."
