Sadio Mane won the Champions League with Liverpool this year and was close to winning the Premier League, however, they missed out on the chance as they were just one point behind league champions, Manchester City.

Currently Mane is on international duty with Senegal, as they participate in the AFCON.

The Liverpool star has admitted he would trade Champions League trophy for the Africa Cup of Nations glory.

“It is up to us to achieve something great,” Mane told France Football .

“Of course we are one of the favourites, we cannot hide from that. But this standing is not enough to go all the way.

“Winning with my country, which has never won the Africa Cup of Nations, that would be magnificent. I am even ready to swap a Champions’ League to win an Africa Cup of Nations.

“The return to Dakar would be extraordinary. This is my biggest and most crazy dream.”
