Michael Owen believes Sadio Mane deserves more credit than he receives as the Liverpool attacker is someone “you can always rely on”.
Former Reds star has opened up on the Senegal international following the club’s 2 – 1 win over Aston Villa in the Premier League. Mane was among the goalscorers along with Joel Matip.
“He’s always just slightly in the shadow of Mo Salah. His contract expires at the same time but everyone talks about Salah’s. Salah is always going for the golden boot, but Mane is just behind by two, three, four goals,” Owen told the Premier League’s coverage.
“But he contributes virtually just as much. What a brilliant player he has been for Liverpool, you can always rely on him, he never gets injured – as tough as anything. Reliable source of goals, big goals.”
