Liverpool star Sadio Mane makes admission after stunning backheel goal

Sadio Mane scored a double in Liverpool’s 5-0 win over Watford.

After his backheel goal in the 20th minute, Mane said that “he was lucky”.

“Trent made a very good cross and I was in the box,” he said.

“It’s one of [the most adventurous goals I’ve scored], yes. But the most important thing is the three points and we got it, so I’m happy. It was my first time since I came to Liverpool I played centrally.

“I always said I’m here for the team, so I try to play any position the coach asks me to play to help the team. We started fast in the game, we moved quickly with and without the ball and created many chances. We scored five goals and we deserved the win.

“The team was fantastic, everybody played well. It was the key.”

Liverpool’s upcoming Premier League game is against Everton on Sunday.
