Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer has paid tribute to Sadio Mane.
Mane scored twice as Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool beat Bayern Munich 3-1 in the Champions League round of 16.
“Mane is in the inside channel and is running towards me, and I thought I could put him off,” said Neuer (via Goal.com), who continues to look a shadow of his former unbreachable self at the age of 32.
“If he takes a normal touch, I get the ball, but he takes a world-class touch so the ball is right in front of his feet. He makes a body feint, goes around me and chips the ball into the goal.
“If I had stayed in goal, Mane would have been one-on-one against me and had a clear chance to score.”
