Speaking in his post match interview, Henderson was asked about Sadio Mane’s outburst when he was substituted and, from the Liverpool Echo, this was his response:
Sadio Mané had 87 shots in the Premier League last year. But who created them?

“I’ve seen it now and again. Sadio is fine, he’s a great lad. That’s just us pushing each other all the time. I think that’s important. We all want to do better, we all want to improve, but we’re really close and I think we can deal with that. I’m not sure [what triggered it] to be honest, I couldn’t really understand at first, but then when he came in [the dressing room], he was laughing and joking. The most important thing was we got the result, Sadio knows that. He performed really well again. Him and Bobby [Firmino] were really big [on] second balls. He had a fantastic game. Like I said, we want to push each other. We want to improve all the time, I quite like that now and again. I think we need it.”

Klopp also laughed off the incident, and with neither captain or manager worried about the incident or Salah and Mane’s relationship, I think we should all enjoy the fact that we’re top of the league, the fact that our front three our firing and the fact that we’ve not lost yet this season. Happy days!
