Southampton manager Ronald Koeman admitted he was angry with Sadio Mane after his striker missed a team meeting and was dropped for Saturday's game against Norwich.

Mane failed to show up for a team meeting prior to the game at Carrow Road, forcing Koeman to change his team as they went down to a 1-0 defeat against the Canaries.

A red card for Victor Wanyama did not help Southampton's cause and cynics will question whether the high profile errors of Mane and Wanyama are a coincidence after they have been linked with high profile moves in this transfer window.

Mane is again being linked with a switch to Manchester United, with Wanyama is on Arsenal and Tottenham's radar once again, with Koeman suggesting he needs to address some discipline issues in his squad as Southampton slip dangerously close to the relegation zone.
