Liverpool star Sadio Mane opens up on relationship with Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino


Sadio Mane considers himself lucky to be playing alongside Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino at Liverpool.

The Senegal forward has been on fire so far this season, scoring 11 goals in 17 games in all competitions, but he has now shifted praised onto his colleagues.

Despite his feud with Salah in the clash against Burnley earlier in the season, he has now outlined why they make such an effective trio.

He told the Liverpool FC Magazine: “I always say it is very easy to work together.

“Personally, I just think myself very lucky to play alongside these great players.

“Every single player who plays alongside them would enjoy it because they are very good players and they make everything easy.

“I just enjoy playing alongside them.

“We are all from different countries and speak different first languages but I think football is one language and it is universal so everybody can speak it.

“It is the same with Mo, Bobby and myself.”

Mane, Salah and Firmino have fired the Reds to two consecutive Champions League finals and to within a point of the Premier League title last season.

Liverpool are currently eight points ahead of their closest rivals Manchester City in their pursuit to win a maiden Premier League title, and Jurgen Klopp knows how crucial Mane will be to their cause.

He said: “He always has the right words and the right things to manage his team, especially knowing how to deal with his team.

“I would always trust his influence on the team. He is a winner.”

Mane is currently away on international duty after firing Liverpool to a 3-1 win over City at Anfield, and is set to start against Crystal Palace next Saturday.
