Sadio Mane insists he is clearly happy at Liverpool

October 5, 2019

Senegal international Sadio Mane has highlighted that he is content with the proceedings at Liverpool. The wide attacker has been hugely instrumental towards the Reds’ progress under manager Jurgen Klopp and this has seemingly caught the eye of Zinedine Zidane, who is keen on recruiting the player for Real Madrid.

However, speaking to Complex, Mane has clarified that he has no concerns over his stay with the Merseyside giants and he can’t describe the pleasure of playing for the club, he said: “To be honest, I’m really happy to be a part of the club, the family here. We have the best fans in the world here, so I’m always so thankful for the support. It’s not just great for me too – it gives the whole squad more motivation to perform. It keeps us hungry to get better and better together…I really struggle to describe how happy I am to be here.”

Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane have been the deadly combination for Liverpool and the trio have come up with a remarkable 56 goals between them – a remarkable 47 have been in the Premier League. These goals have been vital towards helping Liverpool go closer towards the Premier League title for the first time in their history.Firmino has opened up on the secret behind the incredible partnership that has been the cornerstone for Liverpool over the last two seasons.

The Brazilian says that this partnership cannot come overnight and it is a result of the hard work that the trio have put in the training sessions. After having worked together for a couple of years together, the Brazilian says that each player knows the kind of runs that the other player favours. The recent return to form of Mohamed Salah is a huge positive for Liverpool, who have so far been heavily dependent on Sadio Mane and Firmino for goals in recent weeks. Each player has gone through a run of poor form and Liverpool will be thankful that the struggles have not all been at once.

Japan coach wary of Sadio Mane threat

Japan head coach Akira Nishino has admitted that his players are aiming to stop Sadio Mane on his stride as they seek to secure a group-deciding win over Senegal. The Liverpool attacker dictated the tempo of the Lions’ attacking play against Poland and Nishino is concerned that Mane’s positive attitude could seep into the entire Senegalese team.

Speaking in a press conference, he said: “It is not just Yoshida, but all the players we are giving them information about Mane, though I am sure he will be in some duels with Mane. I am sure we can deal with him but with the contribution that Mane can make, it might be possible to mark him one on one or even three on one. It is possible to stop him but the trouble is that he has influence too on other players, and that is what we are concerned about.”
