Sky Sports pundit says Liverpool have made the signing of the summer

Matt Le Tissier says Liverpool have made the signing of the summer by landing Sadio Mane

Matt Le Tissier believes that Liverpool have made the signing of the summer by bringing Sadio Mane to Anfield.

The striker has made a strong start to life on Merseyside after arriving at the club during the summer transfer window from Southampton.

The 24-year-old has already scored three goals and made one assist in six Premier League appearances for Jurgen Klopp’s men so far this season.

Mane has shown plenty of attacking talent and looks set to battle for a regular starting spot in the Reds’ first team this term.

And former Southampton star Le Tissier has been hugely impressed by what he has seen from Mane so far this season.

Asked to pick his top summer signing in the Premier League, Le Tissier told Sky Sports: “As much as it hurts me, I’d have to go with Mane as well. He has been outstanding in his first few games at Liverpool.

“I think him and Adam Lallana were the two most painful to lose as I enjoyed watching them. They’re the guys that get you on the edge of your seat and are who the fans pay the money to watch.

“I think if he finds the consistency that was missing at times at Southampton, and he did have periods where he didn’t look particularly interested, then he certainly gives Liverpool a better chance of winning the league.”
