Mane backs Liverpool to make a comeback
“Liverpool will be back. I’m convinced they will overcome this situation,” the 30-year-old told the German outlet Bild. “They had many injuries and tough tests, but Jurgen Klopp is definitely the right man. He will lead Liverpool back up from this season – the players love him.”
Mane was one of the pillars of Klopp’s success at Liverpool. The Senegal international scored 120 goals and provided 48 assists in 269 matches for Liverpool. His time at Bayern Munich hasn’t been that impressive yet, since he has lost the last three months sidelined with a calf injury.
Mane lost out on the World Cup but was back on Bayern Munich’s bench last weekend. He could feature in the second leg of Bayern Munich’s Champions League fixture against PSG.
