Former Liverpool striker, Michael Owen, has slammed Sadio Mane for showing a lack of respect to his manager, Jurgen Klopp, after the Reds’ Premier League 4-2 win over Manchester United on Thursday.

Goals from Diogo Jota, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah gave Liverpool all three points against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side as Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford’s goals were not enough to give the Red Devils a point.

After Liverpool defeated Man United at Old Trafford, Klopp went onto the pitch to congratulate his players.

The German received a frosty reception from Mane, who had been left on the bench at the start of the match.

Mane refused to shake Klopp’s hand and walked away from him, shaking his head.

But Owen felt the Senegalese international was ‘disrespectful’ for shunning Klopp’s handshake, adding that he shouldn’t have done it in front of cameras.

Reacting, Owen told Premier League Productions, “I thought Jurgen Klopp played it well in the interview, played it down, didn’t want to take the shine off what was a great performance and a great win,” Owen told Premier League Productions.

“But, and there is a big but, you can’t do that to your manager, not in front of the glaring public.

“Yes, go knock on his door tomorrow [after the game], yes, if you are not happy, then say something, but you don’t do that.

“That’s a lack of respect. It sends a bad image to the fans, to his teammates. Don’t forget, he didn’t play, three players did, those three players – Salah, Jota and Firmino – scored all four goals between them, so he’s [Klopp] hardly wrong in what he did.

“I said before the game I would play Mane, I think he’s wonderful, I think he’s a brilliant player, I love watching him, I would have hated to have played against him if I were a defender.

“But at the end of the day, the team that he did pick, the three strikers, scored four goals. You [Mane] just can’t do that. That is a lack of respect, especially with Jurgen Klopp, who shows respect to everybody.

“I thought it was poor play. I totally understand it, I have been left out of a cup final before, but you can’t do that. If you feel that strongly, go back to the training ground, text the manager or knock on his door, there are so many different ways of reacting but not that one in front of the cameras. There are so many ways you can deal with it. That is the last way you deal with it,” he said.
