Sadio Mane has said Naby Keita’s fear of the sea has brought Liverpool’s squad together.
In a hysterical 40-second clip posted on Mane’s Instagram page, Klopp and his Liverpool players test the resolve of the Guinea international during their pre-season trip to Austria.
Clearly frightened by the situation, Keita and his teammates get into an argument as the Liverpool boss winds his midfielder up.
Mane and a Liverpool teammate rock the pedalo from side to side, and – in an amusing turn of events – Keita crawls into a ball and hides, protecting himself from being tipped over the edge.
Mane told the club’s website: “Sometimes we go out, like yesterday [Wednesday] you could see some people struggling to swim in the water.
“I tried to pull Naby in the water – he didn’t want to!
“I think all these kind of things are important and you can see how the team are happy and have joy and happiness together.
“This is really important. We built something special, and you can see LFC is like a family.”
