Cape Town - Liverpool winger Sadio Mane insists he didn't have a falling out with manager Jurgen Klopp in the wake of the 1-1 draw with Chelsea on Saturday.

Mane came off the bench in the 89th minute of the Premier League clash at Anfield and appeared to have a disagreement with Klopp after the final whistle.

However, the Senegal international has explained that there was no argument but just a friendly discussion about player positioning in the last few minutes.

"He asked me to play on the right side and one time I tried to ask for the ball in the No 9 position," Mane told Sky Sports News.

"Mo [Salah] was on my side and the coach was shouting, 'Sadio come onto the right side.

"After the game I told the coach it was easier if you told Mo to come in because he was close to you.

"But it was friendly, it was not because I was unhappy or something else. There was no problem, I was just communicating and explaining that to him after the game."

Meanwhile, Liverpool are away to Stoke City on Wednesday evening in a Premier League clash at the Bet365 Stadium.

Kick off is at 22:00.
