Graeme Souness, Roy Keane and Michael Owen pulled no punches in their assessment of the Senegalese forward's attitude towards his manager.
Owen said he showed a "lack of respect" and praised how Klopp dealt with the situation.
He said: "I thought Jurgen Klopp played it well in the interview, played it down, didn't want to take the shine off what was a great performance and a great win
"But and there is a big but, you can't do that to your manager, not in front of the glaring public.
"Yes, go knock on his door tomorrow [after the game], yes, if you're not happy then say something, but you don't do that. That's a lack of respect. It sends a bad image to the fans, to his teammates."
Souness added: "Disrespectful. If I was the manager; I wouldn't be happy.
"He should show a bit of respect. It's disrespectful to the manager and the club."
Keane :speaking_head:"There is a new trend everyone giving high fives, I didn't want a high five!" :raised_hands:- Football Daily (@footballdaily) May 13, 2021

Keane also blasted Mane, calling out his behaviour: "The player is out of order.
"But when I was a player, I didn't want the manager coming on giving me high fives."
Klopp, though, played down Mane's handshake snub.
Asked if there was a problem, he replied: "No, no problem. Yesterday I made a late decision in training to decide for Diogo.
"The boys are used to me explaining things usually but there was actually no time for that and that's all. It's all fine."
"There is no problem there..." :eyes:- Sky Sports Premier League (@SkySportsPL) May 13, 2021
