Liverpool fans have reacted after their star forward, Sadio Mane, was seen leaving the pitch in tears whilst on international duty with Senegal.
Some Reds fans initially feared that the 26-year-old may have been suffering with an injury, although the truth was revealed shortly after the final whistle.
The former Southampton man missed a golden opportunity to score for his country, and was consequently booed throughout the remainder of the game by his own supporters.
Senegal won the game against Equatorial Guinea 1-0 thanks to an own goal, although that success didn’t seem to alleviate Mane’s sadness much, if at all.
He may be without a goal in his last three games for Jurgen Klopp’s side, but the Senegalese forward is high up in the Premier League scoring ranks with six goals in 11 games – just two behind top scorer Sergio Aguero.
Let’s see how Liverpool fans reacted to their forward’s tears…
Sadio Mane crying because he missed some chances even though Senegal won the game? Something seems off. Hopefully it doesn't affect his confidence too much, we need him on form when he returns. #LFC

All just doesn’t seem well with Sadio Mane … not signing his new contract, not in great form & now crying after a game with Senegal

Cannot understand why Senegal fans doing that he is Senegal main player, every time Salah missing an opportunity with Egypt the Egyptian fans encourage him.

Booing your OWN player or team is a disgrace. Supporters are supposed to SUPPORT their players. They know Mane would not have missed on purpose. Maybe better support would have encouraged him to score next time.

poor guy. we love you Sadio. it turns out that even great players mess up, not like he did it on purpose. Ridiculous to treat him that way.
