New Liverpool signing delivers verdict on life under Jurgen Klopp
Sadio Mane is enjoying life as a Liverpool player
Sadio Mane has revealed that he is adjusting to life under Jurgen Klopp and has already grown close to his Liverpool team-mates.
The Senegal international scored his first goal as a Reds player on Sunday as Mane netted Liverpool’s fourth in a 4-3 victory over Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.
I’m impressed by them because we have a great team with big quality
Mane became Klopp’s second signing of the summer after Liverpool snapped up the African in a £34m deal from Southampton last month.
The 24-year-old impressed for the 18-time English champions during their summer tour of United States before he starred in a 4-0 victory over Barcelona at Wembley earlier this month.
And Mane revealed that he is already feels comfortable with his new Liverpool team-mates after his goal-scoring debut in north London.
“I’m very happy to be here. We’re trying to work on the pitch and in training by listening to the coach,” Mane told Liverpool’s website.
“I’m very pleased because everything is going well. There’s a very good team spirit and the coach is trying to help us give our best. I think this is important.
“I’m close with everyone. I’m just trying to give what I can. I’m impressed by them because we have a great team with big quality.
“Now we have to do it as a team and I think [if we do that] everything is going to go well for us and we’ll be successful.”
Liverpool finished in eighth place in the Premier League table last season after Klopp replaced Brendan Rodgers at the Anfield helm in October.
The Reds haven’t won the top-flight crown since 1990 but Liverpool are in second place after one game of the Premier League season.
Klopp’s side will take on Burnley in their next Premier League fixture against Burnley at Turf Moor on Saturday afternoon.
