However, Mane will be available for Liverpool's opening Champions League fixture against Sevilla at Anfield on Wednesday, and Klopp, speaking on the eve of the match with the Spanish side, knew the appeal on behalf of Mane would end in failure.
"I think it is not broken the bone".
The Liverpoolforward posted a public apology for his challenge on Ederson, who luckily isn't badly hurt. "It wasn't one of those where you think the goalkeeper is the favourite".
City were already leading 1-0 at the time through Aguero's opener and went on to win comfortably with doubles from Jesus and Leroy Sane.
"I don't get why they made Virgil van Dijk their number one target and then when they couldn't get him, say that they're not interested in a central defender".
"It's the same as Mane's", Allardyce added. The foot is high, the player is in danger.
"I offered my hand but Jose didn't want to take it", Hughes said. We cannot change this.
Of course, it was the cause behind Mané's dismissal that dominated the post-match discussion.
Van Bronckhorst won the European title as a player in 2006 when Barcelona overcame another of his former clubs, Arsenal, at the Stade de France.
For many, it was definite proof that Mane deserved a red card. I'm really sorry that it has been touched during our accidental shock on the ground and that he was not able to finish the match because of it. I pray that he recovers quickly and returns to play quickly because it is a player of great quality. The violent conduct red carried with it an automatic suspension for a further three games, a fact confirmed by the FA today.
