Liverpool manager Klopp explains Mane withdrawal for Ajax win

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has explained why Sadio Mane was withdrawn during of Wednesday's win over Ajax in the Champions League.

The Senegal international was spotted with an ice pack on his leg during the 1-0 victory.

But Klopp has quelled fears over a serious injury for the star forward.

"Sadio has since a few days a dead leg and deals with that in that area," Klopp said post-match.

"That's the only thing why it's still painful but it's not a problem. When he doesn't play, he puts ice on it."
