Sadio Mane sends message to Liverpool supporters about frustrating form
The Liverpool forward sends message to the Reds squad about their disappointing performances in recent weeks
Sadio Mane has underlined the importance that Liverpool respond to their disappointing form in the Premier League.
The Reds have failed to win their last four games in all competitions to lose ground on their title rivals and crash out of the EFL Cup.
Indeed, Leicester City were 2-0 winners against Jurgen Klopp’s side in the EFL Cup third round at the King Power Stadium.
The Senegal international hasn’t featured for the Merseyside outfit since a 5-0 loss to Manchester City at The Etihad earlier this month.
Mane was sent off for a dangerous tackle on Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson to rule Mane out of the games against Burnley and Leicester.
Liverpool winger Mane is hoping the Reds can respond to what has been a tough period for Klopp’s side after an impressive start to the season.
“Sometimes it can happen in football, but the most important thing is the reaction and it is important to do that,” Mane told ESPN FC.
“We have a great team and great qualities in the team, and I think we will do it [respond.]”
Liverpool were impressive 4-0 winners against title rivals Arsenal in their final Premier League game in August.
The African forward has scored three goals in four Premier League games to start the season with a flurry.
The Merseyside outfit signed AS Roma winger Mohamed Salah, Chelsea teenager Dominic Solanke, Hull City defender Andy Robertson and Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
