Jamie Carragher admits he ‘absolutely loves’ Liverpool FC star
Jamie Carragher explains just why he is such a big fan of Sadio Mane at Liverpool FC
Jamie Carragher has admitted that Sadio Mane is his favourite player at Liverpool FC and that he “absolutely loves” the Senegal international.
Mane is seen as one of the Reds’ key players and he has developed a lethal understanding with the likes of Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino up front for Jurgen Klopp’s men.
The 27-year-old attacker has already scored five goals and made one assist in eight Premier League games so far this season to help Liverpool FC build an eight-point lead at the top of the table.
Mane has also netted once in two Champions League appearances for the Reds this term.
The forward has slotted in seamlessly into Klopp’s team at Anfield since having arrived at the club from Southampton in the summer of 2016.
And Liverpool FC legend Carragher has explained just why he is such a big fan of the forward.
Speaking in an interview with Liverpool FC’s website, Carragher said: “Even after the first couple of games, I said Mane, probably along with Raheem Sterling, was possibly the best left winger in the world.
“I absolutely love him, he’s my favourite player at the club. He’s brilliant, he’s always got a smile on his face, always there, always gets knocked about, gets goals, setting others up.
“He’s the one who came in at the very start under Klopp, his first real big signing, and I think ever since then he’s just been getting better and better. He’s just a machine.”
Mane will be expecting to feature for Liverpool FC when the Reds return to Premier League action after the international break with a crunch clash against arch rivals Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.
The Reds have won all eight of their opening Premier League games so far this season.
