These Liverpool fans have been reacting to reports that forward Sadio Mane wants to leave the club at the end of the 2019/20 campaign.
According to France Football, the Senegal international wants a way out of Anfield because manager Jurgen Klopp backed teammate Virgil van Dijk to win the Ballon d’Or over himself.
Is Sadio Mane our best player?
As a result, supporters slammed any suggestion that Mane was unhappy on Merseyside and made their feelings clear on social media. Three fans described the whispers as “pathetic”, “cobblers” and “silly”.

The most humble man in football who helps clean his local mosque is upset because Klopp didn’t niminate him for the balon d’or? Yeah ok
