Klopp told Sky Sports, “We spoke and he apologized. That is clear and it is. ‘
Mane often impressed during his time at Liverpool but, like many of his teammates, has endured some difficulties this season.
In the match against West Brom, Mane had scored just nine goals in 32 Premier League appearances, well behind his return of 18 goals last season.
With Diogo Jota injured, Mané will be hopeful to start Liverpool’s final two games of the season against Burnley and Crystal Palace.
