"Sadio's not a diver", Klopp hits back at Guardiola

SHOWS: LIVERPOOL, ENGLAND, UK (NOVEMBER 4, 2019) (REUTERS - ACCESS ALL) 1.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) LIVERPOOL MANAGER, JUERGEN KLOPP, ON MANCHESTER CITY MANAGER, PEP GUARDIOLA, ACCUSING SADIO MANE OF DIVING, SAYING: "I'm not really in the Man City mood at the moment to be honest.

I don't think about that.

Do I like that he says (talks) about one of my players (Sadio Mane).

I'm not one hundred per cent sure he spoke about Sadio (Mane) or about us in general because maybe he only mixed the word 'he' and 'it' or 'them' up, I'm not sure now.

But maybe, I didn't hear Sadio's name.

I don't know how he could have known about any incident in the game so quick after the game.

What happened there.

What I can say, and people from other clubs, it's always like this, that's how it is.

But, Sadio's not a diver." STORY:
