Sadio Mane was seen mimicking Jurgen Klopp’s iconic fist-pump celebration following Liverpool’sFA Cup triumph.
After a goalless 90 minutes and extra-time, the Reds were eventually victorious on penalties and the Senegal international, 30, who missed his spot-kick at Wembley, decided he would copy his boss and punch his fist into the air, as the player and manager lapped up the acclaim from the Reds support.
Liverpool clinched the trophy after Chelsea star Mason Mount missed his strike in sudden death of the penalty shoot-out, meaning their hopes of a quadruple are still firmly alive. Indeed, the northwest club enjoyed a superb win over the Blues on Saturday, earning their second trophy of the season, having already won the League Cup.
They are in the Champions League final, too, where they will come up against Real Madrid later this month. Liverpool are also second in the Premier League, three points behind Manchester City with two games to go.
After the final, Klopp said that he could not be any more proud of his players and the performance they gave. The manager, who became the first German boss to lift the FA Cup, said after the game: “It was intense – Chelsea would have deserved it exactly the same way we did, just like in the Carabao Cup – that's how small the margins are. Chelsea played outstanding but in the end there must be one winner and that was us today."

The former Borussia Dortmund boss said also that the possibility of Liverpool being in contention for a quadruple is ‘out of this world.’
"The quadruple thing is absolutely outstanding that we can talk about it. It's crazy," said Klopp. "It's out of this world – this was game number 60 in an intense season."
Meanwhile, Mane has reportedly expressed a desire to join Bayern Munich after the star held talks with the side this week. According to German publication Bild, the Bundesliga giants had spoken with Mane's agent, Bjorn Bezemer, recently and there is a consideration that they will look to the Liverpool forward as a possible replacement for Robert Lewandowski.
