Dijo que sometimes uses subjunctive. When your phrase shows a command, it forms subj. but when it is a fact, then it goes indicative.
Me dijo que viniera. He told me to come
Me dijo que había mucha gente He told me there were a lot of people
Me dijo que le hablase He told me to talk to her
Me dijo que le hablaban He told me that they were talking to her
