Peter Crouch makes admission about Liverpool star Sadio Mane

Peter Crouch has admitted to the Daily Mail that he did think Sadio Mane crossed a line when he snubbed Jurgen Klopp after Liverpool’s win at Old Trafford last week.

The Reds secured a huge win at Manchester United as they look to make the top four. But there was one interesting moment after the game as Klopp went to high-five Mane.

Mane however, ignored his boss. Klopp defended the Senegal international after the game, insisting that he was upset about being left on the bench without being given a proper explanation (via Guardian).

His boss may not have had too much of a problem with his actions, but Crouch suggested that displaying his frustrations so publicly was a mistake.

“I think he did [cross the line]. There is a time and place for venting your feelings to your manager and the halfway line at Old Trafford at the final whistle, as a visiting player, is not the place or the time,” he told the Daily Mail.

“You have a duty to keep a lid on your emotions when the cameras are rolling. When you get into the dressing room or back to the training ground, that is when you have your say.”

It was a disappointing stance to take considering how big a win it proved to be. Liverpool put themselves right back into the mix for the top four with the three points.

Having said that, there may have been part of Klopp that will have loved to see his frustration. Mane has come in for a lot of criticism this season. So if he feels that he has a point to prove to his manager, the Reds are surely going to be the big beneficiaries at a vital stage of the campaign.
