Utter humiliation for Sadio Mane as the Reds forward was subjected to nasty nutmeg at the hands of newcomer Ozan Kabak in training
Though, to his credit, the Senegalese reacted in an admirable manner as he jokingly requested the cameraman to not put the incident in the recording.
Liverpool players were training ahead of their upcoming clash against Newcastle United at Anfield on Saturday.
The Reds have suffered a horrendous time at home in the league this season but managed to make a u-turn with a 2-1 win against Aston Villa in their last league outing at Anfield.
Just like their rare win at Anfield, Sadio Mane also found his scoring boots in Liverpool’s 1-1 away draw at Leeds United last weekend.

Mane’s miserable form in front of goal has coincided with the horrible run Jurgen Klopp’s side has found themselves in this season, but the player seems more than confident of turning the tide as he told the official website.
“It’s a really, really tough time for me, we have to recognise that, but it’s part of football and I already know it so I’m dealing with it and trying to work as hard as I can to help the team more.”
“A few years ago I would maybe struggle a bit more but now I have more experience and know a bit more about football so I know how this kind of time is.”
“It’s my first time but, to be honest, I never doubt [myself]. I just try to be more positive than I’ve ever been, so that’s it.”
