Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp, was full of praises for Sadio Mane after the former Southampton man put up a match winning display in the League Cup victory over Burton. The Senegalese player recorded two assists and five key passes to drown their opponents at the Pirelli Stadium. He was instrumental in the opener for Divock Origi and created two chances beforehand, while Mane was also involved in both Daniel Sturridge goals.
“I really like this player, but I don’t like to talk too much after only two games for him.
“We knew of his qualities and how they fit our style, which is why we brought him here.
“It’s not that we have to pat ourselves on the back every day at signing him, Klopp said.
Mane scored in Liverpool’s 4-3 victory over Arsenal, but sat out the 2-0 defeat at Burnley as he nursed a muscle injury in his shoulder. His absence was felt at Turf Moor, and the 24-year-old is poised to be pivotal again at White Hart Lane on Saturday.
