All Sadio Mane talk in here.
All Sadio Mane talk in here.
Fast as hell with the ball, and great control of the ball when running.
So excited to see what he can do.
Looked like a 50-60m player yesterday.
But has to perform every game ... We don't need another Firmino, who only truly turns it on 1 game in 3.
Pretty impressive stats as well -
Goals - 1
Shots - 3
Take-ons - 4
Pass Accuracy - 92.9%
Tackles - 4
Duels Won - 16
Ball Recoveries - 8
Just love those last two as well.
Not just he's a threat going forward
but he works hard as hell.
A common complaint last year was that we were bereft of ideas going foward.
I dunno if you could make that claim any more...
He looked like a proper world class player yesterday. If he performs like that more often then not then its a hell of a signing, possibly best one since Suarez.
My biggest concern was the price tag affecting him mentally with the added pressure of being our most expensive player.
Must say, thus far, he is coping just brilliantly.
What a performance yesterday.
Long may it continue.
Mane is certainly proving he is value for money so far, his goal was stunning.
Only player that looked remotely arsed first 45, battling for every ball... it was fantastic to see.
Deserved his goal.
Apart from his incredible goal, he was probably the best player on the pitch. Great start.
He can be a patchy player, though, so if he can deliver performances like this frequently over the next 2 years, he'll become crucial.
Early days so no point going off the deep end but yesterday he brought to the game exactly what you'd want - pace, power and directness. We don't have a lot of that in the team at all and a bit like when PHIL and Danny signed, its always as clear as day when a player who's a good fit comes into the team.
I swear some idiot on here was arguing that he doesn't have any pace...
Fast, direct, aggressive and can finish.
what people saying about when sign him, poor buy, not good enough, not type of player to get to top 4, Man U have bought better player, slow, inconsistent, we could get for that money.
oh boy can not wait see him fire on all cylinders
This makes the signing even sweeter...
Sadio Mane: Why I turned down Manchester United to sign for Liverpool
“There was interest from a lot of clubs, not just Manchester United, but as soon as I knew Liverpool were interested I just felt it was the right club with the right coach. It was right for me to come here.
“Liverpool are a massive club with a big history that has won many trophies over the years and as soon as I was told of the possibility to come here and I knew the manager wanted me I said yes.
“It was the right move. I recognise the size of the club and to progress to another level as a player this was the club and the moment for me. It was a step I needed to make.”
Wnen Mana signed there was a lot on here criticising him and sayinb they were underwelmed by his signing
Egg on there face and its just the first game
Baffling really as of all the things you could say about him, being slow most definitely isn't one of them
Think he showed one of those peak speed charts and said that as Mane wasn't in the top 10 in meant he wasn't quick. Thing is, I've seen one of those that had Andy Carroll at the top at 22mph because once he gets going he motors. Mane isn't outrageously quick, but his acceleration and mobility means in the real world, he's a big problem for defenders
