Klopp has never really expressed his opinion about the sale of the Senegalese since he was sold to the Bundesliga during the summer transfer window. According to the German, Mane is a fantastic player and it was always going to be clear that the club will miss him in games.
Sadio is a world-class player. It was always clear that we were going to miss him. But this is not our problem now. Unfortunately, we also played bad games with Sadio. Not ‘so’ bad, but bad. I especially understand that the Liverpool fans want to discuss it, want solutions and things like that. But trust me, we have worked on solutions, and now we have the opportunity to show that we have understood it and that we will react.
Mane was a fantastic addition to the Liverpool team during his time at the club. He scored 120 goals and had 49 assists in 269 appearances across all competitions, winning six major trophies during his time at the club.
