James Milner provides hilarious explanation for why Sadio Mane was so angry

James Milner has given his own brilliant version of why Sadio Mane was so angry after being substituted against Burnley.

The Senegalese forward was on target in the 3-0 win at Turf Moor but was left frustrated after Mo Salah selfishly tried to dribble past multiple defenders instead of pass to him in the latter stages of the second half.

As a result Mane lost his cool when he was replaced in the 85th minute, furiously gesturing as he threw a major tantrum on the bench. His teammates, including Milner, had to calm him down.

But after it all got swept under the carpet, the Liverpool No.7 has taken to Instagram to joke that Mane was not happy with Jurgen Klopp failing to send Milner onto the pitch.

Maybe I misread this, but I’m pretty sure Sadio was reacting to me not getting brought on 🤷🏻‍♂️😂 #getmillyon #thanksmate
