Mane injury not too serious - Klopp


Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has downplayed the severity of the shoulder injury Saido Mane sustained in training on Wednesday.

Mane was pictured leaving Liverpool's Melwood training ground with his arm in a sling with reports claiming he had travelled to hospital for scans on his damaged shoulder.

There were fears that he had suffered a dislocated shoulder, but Klopp has revealed that the problem will not keep the forward out for too long.

"It was a challenge between two players in the air and Sadio fell on his shoulder. It’s not that serious,” Klopp told reporters.

"It won’t take a long time but I don’t know yet whether he will be available for this weekend.”

Alberto Moreno came in for criticism for his defending in the 4-3 win over Arsenal last weekend but Klopp has jumped to the defence of the Spaniard.

"I cannot be interested in criticism of our people. Alberto played and there should be a reason for it. I’m thinking about what I need to," Klopp told reporters.

"We spoke how to defend together differently. This situation happened a few times before the penalty - five or six times beforehand. He could’ve done better, that’s right, but that’s all.

"Football is a came you cannot play without making mistakes. We have to make decisions. We have a lot of players who can play in our style of play at left back.

"I’ve now heard people aren’t happy about Moreno’s situation. Sorry about this. We have Milner who can play there. I don’t want to force a player into a new position, I need the player convinced himself.

"Nathaniel Clyne played over there too. There are a lot of different options. Another one? That’s possible but only if it’s the guy we want. The problem is that nobody cares about the players who are still here. I think it’s about commitment."
