Liverpool fans really appreciate Sadio Mane’s latest quotes on Man Utd interest

Sadio Mane is something of a fan favourite at Liverpool.

The Senegalese winger has been a revelation ever since his £36m move from Southampton back in 2016.

Back then, the move and price tag was seen as a bit of a risk, despite his impressive performances with the Saints.

But now, he is one of the most feared wingers in the world and is part of one of the best front three’s to have graced the Premier League alongside Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino.

Mane was also instrumental in Liverpool’s famous Champions League run last season, scoring 10 goals in 11 games – including seven in the knockout rounds.

And he’s started this season in pretty stellar fashion, with three goals to his name already in the opening three games.

Do Liverpool fans need another reason to adore him? Probably not, but he’s given them one anyway in his latest interview.

Mane was speaking to Carol Tshabalala on behalf of the Premier League and discussed Manchester United’s interest in him back in 2016.

It’s well-known that he rejected United, but to hear him say so clearly that the Red Devils were the “wrong team” will earn him a lot of plaudits from Merseyside.


Mane explains how former United manager Louis van Gaal spoke with him and even made him an offer, but he knew it wasn’t where he wanted to be.

He then reveals how a few days later, Klopp and Liverpool came along with the right offer and he jumped at the chance.

Fair to say, Liverpool fans love him even more now.
