Sadio Mane opened the score in Liverpool’s 2-1 win over Leicester City, yesterday night.
After the game, Mane has opened up on the victory and James Milner’s assist which led to a goal.
Mane told Liverpool FC:”Emotional today. To be honest, I think it was a really, really tough game. We knew that before and expected it. We played the Champions League [on Wednesday] and now we carry on with this intense game.
“But it’s normal, it’s the Premier League and we have to expect it all the time. At the end of the day, the most important thing is the three points, it doesn’t matter how tired we are.
“I think it would have been so important for us to keep managing the game, but sometimes it’s not easy because Leicester is a very, very good team and caused us many problems. They equalised the game and that’s why in football you never give up, that’s what we try to do as a team.
“At the end of the game, we got a penalty. To be honest, we just have to say we deserved to win this game.”
After the win, Liverpool continue to leading the league table with maximum points.
“The assist was just incredible,” continued Mane. “I didn’t expect that he saw me because usually he never gives me that kind of ball!
“It was just a great assist from Milner and I just try to finish each ball. Lucky boy, I just finished this one and I’m happy to score a goal, especially as we got the three points.”
