Senegal international Sadio Mane says Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp pushed the club's playing staff to stay 'angry' in the build-up to Saturday's 3-0 win over Bournemouth in order to guard against complacency.
Mohamed Salah took his tally to 40 for the season as Liverpool maintained their push for a top-four finish with a 3-0 win over AFC Bournemouth at Anfield on Saturday night with Mane netting the opener.

Mane and his gang came into their Anfield meeting with the Cherries having secured a place in the semi-finals of the Champions League by twice defeating Manchester City.
"Before the game, [the boss] said we have to [show] our quality and be angry because every game is important. After the City game, you have to concentrate more because you usually know how it [can go].
"He tried to motivate us like usually and, in the end, everybody was in the right place at the right time to win every ball.
"We played well today and created many chances, scored three goals and it was well deserved."
Mane was joined on the scoresheet by fellow forwards Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino - the seventh time this season all three have netted in the same game.
