Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp has broken silence on Sadio Mane's refusing to shake his hand following a game against Manchester United. He described the incident as "no problem" and claimed relations between the two were "all fine".
"No there's no problem," Klopp said as quoted by the Goal.com. "Yesterday I made a late decision in training to go with Diogo Jota. I would usually explain it but there was no time for that. It is all fine.”
