Klopp Protects Mane from Pep’s Diver Claims


Jurgen Klopp says his Arch Rival, Pep Guardiola should be more interested in making City a World Beater, especially in Europe, rather than talking negatively about players from other teams.

Guardiola, speaking after City’s comeback win against Southampton on Saturday, reacted by saying “sometimes Mane’s diving, sometimes he has this talent to score incredible goals in the last minute”.

This was Klopp’s reaction to Pep’s comment


“I’m not really in a Man City mood at the moment”.

“Do I like that he says this about one of my players? I’m not even 100 per cent sure if he spoke about Sadio [Mane] 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].”

“Sadio is not a diver. There was a situation in the Aston Villa game where he got a contact and went down”.

“Maybe it wasn’t a penalty but there was contact it’s not like jumping over a leg and acting like he hit you.”
