After Liverpool’s 4-2 victory at Old Trafford on Thursday, former Newcastle boss Graeme Souness and Manchester United legend Roy Keane blasted Sadio Mane’s stance towards manager Jurgen Klopp.
Both men thought Mane was ‘disrespectful’ and ‘out of control’ for ignoring Klopp’s handshake.
Klopp went onto the field after the win to congratulate his team.
Reds’ scorers were Diogo Jota, Roberto Firmino, and Mohamed Salah, while Man United’s scorers were Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford.
Klopp received a frosty reception from Mane – who had been left on the bench at the start of the match.
Mane refused to shake his manager’s hand and walked away from him shaking his head.
And Souness, the former Liverpool midfielder and manager, was unimpressed by the winger’s antics.
“Disrespectful. If I was the manager I wouldn’t be happy,” Souness told Sky Sports after the match.
“He should show a bit of respect. It’s disrespectful to the manager and the club.
“How can he argue? He’s not had a great season and Liverpool have won here 4-2.”
Adding his voice, Keane, the former Manchester United midfielder, agreed that the Senegal international was “out of order” but also felt Klopp should have “backed away.”
“The player is out of order,” said Keane.
“But when I was a player, I didn’t want the manager coming on giving me high fives.”
