It continues to be difficult not to pour our hearts out over how much we love Sadio Mane and the incredible impact he has had at Liverpool.
He has been that good though, that he deserves this constant praise.
He has been outstanding since his move to Southampton and the union of his raw attacking talent with Jurgen Klopp’s tactics appears to have been destiny.
Settling down is often a problem for big money signings but he has had no problems whatsoever.
Mane is rightly getting the recognition he deserves from both his teammates and fans for the performances he has been putting in for us so far.
Speaking to Goal.com, Nathaniel Clyne said: “He is quality, he always wants the ball.”
“You can see when he gets the ball that he is always looking forward and his first intention is to get at the defence and cause problems. You can see that he has done that.”
“He has been great, he has provided assists and he has scored goals. He is on fire at the moment. There’s so much quality around the squad, you look around the dressing room at the players we have got, and we have so much ability.”
The Senegalese star’s departure for the African Cup of Nations in January will be a huge loss as far as our title challenge is concerned.
He has become a vital player in such a short space of time and has transformed himself into someone that is crucial to our team’s attacking style of play actually succeeding.
Clyne rightly points out the quality throughout our squad, which is why we are confident Klopp will find a way to readjust his system successfully during Mane’s absence.
What a signing he has been, though. He is only going to get better.
