But one week before the derby, we stop talking. We don’t send messages and we don’t call. We play this game like we’re supporters,” said Gueye, according to Daily Mail.“Sadio told me after our last international duty (v Equatorial Guinea on November 17) not to call and I said OK. We can start talking again after the game. If we win, I’ll call him straight away!”“He scored the winning goal at Goodison (2016) and came to me afterwards. Hopefully, it will be my turn to do that.”divock origi, liverpoolReport: Origi cause Klopp injury concerns George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Divock Origi injury in today’s game against Newcastle is a cause for concern for Jurgen Klopp.Perhaps with one eye on Tuesday’s trip to Italy…Speaking about the enormous pressure African players undergo during the international period, he cited Sadio Mane crying after being booed by Senegalese fans.Gueye said: “I tried to talk to him after the game but he just wanted to be by himself.”“I knew it was difficult for him.
