Sadio Mane to serve 3-match suspension

Premier League- Manchester City vs Liverpool

Mane, who played in Liverpool's 2-2 Champions League draw with Sevilla on Wednesday night, now admits that he will just to accept the decision and move on despite pleading his innocence.

The 25-year-old kicked Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson Moraes in the head on Saturday and was immediately given his marching orders by referee Jon Moss, whose decision sparked mass debates in the football world.

Liverpool tried to appeal Mane's red but to no avail.

After the Manchester City match, Mane apologised to Ederson via Facebook, saying: "I hope and wish Ederson a quick recovery".

"I am not sure if I am disappointed, I didn't expect anything different", said Klopp. "But actually I never thought [a reduction in the ban] would happen, only because I am used to things like this".


"There were a lot of situations in the last few weeks which were similar and all the other players were lucky; only Sadio and Ederson were not lucky".

"The most important thing for me to say is not even one per cent of Sadio wanted to put the goalkeeper in danger".

"We don't want to underestimate this, it looks terrible and Ederson was lucky nothing more serious happened in this situation".

The Senegal worldwide retained his place in Jurgen Klopp's side for the visit of the Spanish club after the winger was sent off in the first half of their 5-0 loss to Manchester City in the Premier League last weekend. "He wanted to get the ball", Klopp added.

"We can not change this and it's a sport where this happens". "It was really our duty to appeal". If I saw the boy bleeding I would have made the same decision.
