Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp has said he hated subbing Sadio Mane in his side’s Champions League win over Atletico Madrid at Anfield on Wednesday.
Mane was substituted at half time having booked a yellow card.
“The referee was [in control] but I really hate the moment when I had to take off Sadio Mane,” Klopp told reporters after the game which saw Liverpool qualifying for the knockout stage.
“I hated it more than you can imagine but my worry was with any challenges, if any of them roll around, then Sadio is off.
“I didn’t like it but in the end, you have to do it.”
