Mane happy to be a Liverpool player


Liverpool forward Sadio Mane has said that he thinks the team “are in a good way” and that the squad are “very happy playing with each other”.

Mane sparked his own form back into life spectacularly this past week with a hat-trick in the 5-0 demolition of FC Porto in the Champions League and followed that up with a goal against West Ham in the 4-1 win on Saturday.

And the Senegal international is enjoying playing in Jurgen Klopp’s side as they enter the final few months of the season.

“The team spirit is good and the confidence is here so I think we are in a good way.” he is quoted by Sky Sports.

“Every single player is always very happy playing with each other. We always try to help each other and we work as a team.

“I think that is the team’s power and the team’s purpose. Every single player would love to play in this team.

“We are lucky boys and we are going to keep trying to work hard and give our best when we take our places on the pitch to continue to try and win the games.

“I can sense that the club is moving in the right direction. There were a couple of difficult years at Liverpool a while back but those things happen to every single club in the world.

“At the moment we are in a good way so everything is possible. I think we have improved a lot in the past few months.

“We know that on our day we can beat any team in the world.” he continued.

Mane went on to single out team-mate Virgil van Dijk, who he used to play with at Southampton, for praise following the Dutchman’s arrival at Anfield last month.

“He’s a great player and I know him very well because he was my team-mate when I was at Southampton too.” he said.

“He is a very good addition for us and we are very happy to have him in the team. For sure, he will make a difference for us.

“He is strong and technical and clever in the games. He wins a lot of balls in the air and he reads the game very well too.” he finished.
