Jurgen Klopp’s anger is fuming over the situation surrounding the Liverpool star
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp admits he is ‘sick’ of watching Sadio Mane fail to get big decisions from referees.
The Reds beat Arsenal 2-0 on Wednesday night with Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino both on the scoresheet in the second half.
Liverpool fought a tough first half for control after the break, seeing a display of Arsenal spirit.
This means Liverpool are just one point behind Manchester City in the race to the Premier League title but Jurgen Klopp is not entirely happy.
In the first half, Mane managed to get past Arsenal defender Gabriel Magalhaes.
Mane pounded the ground looking for a free kick but replayed videos showed there appeared to be no contact from the Arsenal man.
Arsenal fans wanted Mane to sign up for a scuba dive, and Gary Neville said in the Sky Sports report that he also thinks it’s a dive.
Mane did not receive a card, leaving many fans on Twitter completely confused by his reckless behavior towards the Liverpool star.
However, speaking to Anfield Watch After the final whistle, Klopp thought he was fed up with the situation around Mane.
Klopp believes Mane never takes decisions from the referee and is adamant that the Senegal star is not a diver at all.
The German feels that referees treat Mane differently than the likes of Arsenal’s Ben White and is calling for more protection for his star winger.
“The situation with Sadio Mane, I’m sick of it!” Klopp said. “I’m just fed up when you take a player out there and they can do what they want, everything. They fouled him and he was not fouled. That’s what I talked about. It has nothing to do with the game. I have no idea. Maybe someone can explain to me why Sadio didn’t get the free kick. Don’t tell me he’s a diver or anything, he’s not. I know him better than anyone else and he doesn’t! ”
“Maybe if he has, it’s not an obvious foul but for him it’s always like this. Maybe there’s just a little bit of contact and he goes down but then you see that in the next five situations, he’s not getting [a free kick] appropriate foul
“Whatever you want to do, just look back at the situations and tell me it wasn’t always a foul. Ben White at the corner, Sadio pressed, Ben shot the ball more or less out, there was no contact but it was still a free kick for Arsenal. Ben White is smart but if Sadio does that, the whole stadium tilts and the referee thinks ‘oh my god.’ I’m sick of it and that’s why I’m a bit angry,” he added.
