Liverpool: Fans fire back at Pep Guardiola after dig at Sadio Mane

Liverpool fans have hit back at Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola after his comments about Sadio Mane after his side’s 2-1 victory against Southampton on Saturday.

The Citizens are preparing for their next game at Anfield on Sunday as the gargantuan clash between the Reds and the blue half of Manchester edges closer, and the Spaniard decided to initiate the mind games early.

The champions currently sit second in the table and six points behind the Merseyside club after 11 games. Guardiola did not hesitate to mention Liverpool and Sadio Mane during his post-match interview at the Etihad.

Speaking to BBC Sport, Guardiola said, “It has happened many times, what Liverpool have done, in the last few years, it’s because (Mane) is a special talent”, Guardiola said.

“Sometimes he’s diving, sometimes he has this talent to score incredible goals in the last minute. He’s a talent.”

Jurgen Klopp’s side found themselves behind against Aston Villa earlier on after Trezeguet opened the scoring for Villa in the 21st minute. Mane was booked for simulation in the first after he went down from Villa defender Frederic Guilbert’s challenge.

However, Mane would have the last laugh after scoring a dramatic 94th-minute winner to guide his side to a 2-1 victory against the Midlands based-outfit.

Supporters believed that the German manager should use the comments as an incentive to go and win their game against them on Sunday. One fan simply put, “team talk done”.

Here are some of the best responses from Liverpool fans:
