In a recent interview with Complex, Liverpool wide player Sadio Mane shed some light on how happy he is with life at Anfield and 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!”
The Senegalese winger was linked with a move to Real Madrid earlier this summer, but a move failed to materialise (via the Sun). Mane also expressed his frustrations at his teammate Mohamed Salah during a 3-0 victory over Burnley in the Premier League which had cast some doubt on his long-term future at Anfield. However, Mane’s recent comments will be music to the ears of anyone associated with Liverpool as it will ease some tensions within Jurgen Klopp’s squad.
Mane’s Rich Vein Of Form For Liverpool This Season
The former Southampton forward has enjoyed a stellar start to the new season after he put in a couple of match-winning displays for the Reds before the international break. Mane has netted four goals and grabbed one assist in five matches for the Merseyside outfit across multiple competitions this term.
The 27-year-old is also vastly experienced at the international level, having represented Senegal in 60 matches while registering 16 goals for his nation thus far. He came close to winning the African Cup of Nations with his country, but they were narrowly beaten by Algeria in the final earlier this summer.
What Makes The Senegalese Such An Exceptional Forward?
Mane boasts blistering pace and is one of the most dangerous dribblers in the top tier of England. He comes alive on the counter and is an unforgiving finisher in the final third. The Senegal international is quite unpredictable in the way he operates, which makes life difficult for his marker in the offensive end of the field.
Klopp would love the fact that Mane is enjoying life at Merseyside and is always looking to improve his game. His hunger, work ethic and desire to win are second to none, which makes him such a special player for Liverpool.
Mane Happy With Life At Anfield: Huge Boost For Klopp?
The Senegalese’s comments will give the Reds a big boost ahead of their home encounter versus Newcastle United this weekend. With Mane happy and firing on all cylinders, it is expected that Klopp’s frontline will once again score a lot of goals and be an unstoppable unit in the coming months.
