Champions League winner Liverpool will play against Europa League winners Chelsea in the UEFA Super Cup on Wednesday, in Istanbul.
Ahead of the game, Liverpool player Sadio Mane has faced the press.
“We are going to do everything to win and hopefully [Istanbul] will continue to be a lucky city for Liverpool. I am ready. I haven’t had a holiday for more than 20 days for seven years, so I am here now and I say let’s go, ” the player has said.
On their rival Chelsea’s defeat to Manchester United in the Premier League opener, the Senegal international has said: “I watched Chelsea and even though they lost 4-0 they played very well and created chances. End of the day Manchester United deserved to win. Hopefully, we will do the same.”
Mane has been asked a controversial question about N’Golo Kante’s role at Chelsea and he has simply said: “To be honest, I think, you know Chelsea better than me. I am not putting this in my mind, I just think of Liverpool and I do everything. For sure, he is an important player for Chelsea but I have nothing to say.”
In the end, Mane said the female referee will not affect on the players and the game.
