Liverpool boss Klopp: We miss Mane here

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp admits they're missing Sadio Mane.

Pushing for a move to Bayern Munich, the Senegal international ended up joining the Bundesliga giants in a deal worth up to £35m.

"A good guy and a top player. But missing it sounds like I still want him here. I think it's really okay that Sadio just wanted to do something different," Klopp told Sky Deutschland.

"Absolutely. I totally respect that. The way it went was great. We knew that he would do something different without breaking up badly. That must be possible in life.

“That's exactly what happened. Missing? Yes! But I'm happy too. That he's where he wanted to be. We'll solve our problems here.

“Sadio is an outstanding player. Everyone in Munich saw that too. He's absolutely world class. Everything will be fine."
