Liverpool star Sadio Mane issues response to fresh diving accusations (Mirror)

Liverpool forward Sadio Mane has responded to being embroiled in more suggestions of diving in his side's 1-1 Champions League draw with Napoli.[BREAK]The Senegal international has won several spot-kicks this season, prompting Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola to claim Mane is "sometimes diving" in a bizarre interview after Liverpool came from behind to beat Aston Villa earlier this month.[BREAK]“Yes, I think it was a penalty," Mane said in quotes reported by the Liverpool Echo , jokingly adding: "I was not diving like usual eh?![BREAK]Mane had a penalty claim turned down when he went down under a challenge from Giovanni Di Lorenzo in the draw, which has left Liverpool needing to avoid defeat in their final group game against Red Bull Salzburg in order to qualify for the last 16.[BREAK]“The tiredness is in the head, so as long as the body recovers well I think it is not difficult for us to play every single game, if the team needs us, and the coach needs us, I think we will be able to play and help the team.”[BREAK]Mane and Roberto Firmino have played in every match this season, apart from Carabao Cup games, while Mohamed Salah has missed just two due to an ankle injury.[BREAK]And Mane saw the funny side when asked about the incident during the Napoli game.
