Mane believes if there is contact he has a right to go down

Liverpool forward Sadio Mane says he will not change his style of play despite Pep Guardiola's "diving" accusation.

The Manchester City boss made the claim at the weekend, when the Senegal international was booked after going down in the penalty area following a challenge by Aston Villa's Frederic Guilbert.

Mane believes if there is contact he has a right to go down.

And he offered a sarcastic response to the City boss ahead of the match between the two sides at Anfield on Sunday, saying: "If it could be a penalty for sure I will 'dive' again. If the 'dive' will give me a penalty then I will do it. Why not? But what Jurgen (Klopp) said is correct. I do not dive," said Mane.
