Before getting injured last season, he had been impressive for Liverpool as a right winger, scoring goals, assisting, and generally proving that the Reds were perfectly right to sign him from Southampton.
Now that Mohamed Salah is on board as well though, and doing fantastic in Liverpool’s right wing, having already scored four goals for them, Sadio Mane says he’s absolutely fine with playing anywhere, if that’s what Jurgen Klopp wants, as he’s trying to fit both of them in the starting lineup.
Everybody has seen how he’s quicker than everyone on the pitch. He’s a nice lad and a great player
the Senegal international told Liverpool’s official website, talking about his Egyptian teammate.
I am able to play every forward position. I don’t have a problem with that. I have played left wing, right wing and striker – it’s no problem for me
Mane also said, making his coach’s life much easier. As for how it feels to finally be back, after months of dealing with an injury, the 25-year-old Senegalese expressed his relief and happiness to finally be able to play again.
I’m very happy to be back. It was not easy to be off the pitch for three months. I want to always help my teammates on the pitch and help my club to get better. I want to score more goals for my team and to assist as well. Why not win trophies with the team? I’m very confident and looking forward to it. There are still some things to work on. I’m not 100 percent fit, but it’s preseason so I’m okay with that. It will come
