On Sunday afternoon, Liverpool defeated Manchester City 1-0 in a crucial victory in the Premier League, much to the satisfaction of Sadio Mane, a former player who left in the summer.
When Sadio Mane learned that Liverpool had defeated Manchester City in the Premier League on Sunday night, he was ecstatic.
Before moving to Bayern Munich for £35 million in the summer, Mane spent six years at Liverpool, making 269 appearances while scoring 120 goals and providing 48 assists.
Although he has adapted to his new squad and scored nine goals in 16 games for Bayern, it appears he is still keeping an eye on his previous club.
Mohamed Salah’s spectacular second-half goal gave Liverpool a resounding 1-0 victory over reigning champions City at Anfield over the weekend.
Mane offered his congratulations to Jurgen Klopp’s players despite missing the game on television because he was too busy scoring in Bayern’s 5-0 thrashing of Freiburg on Sunday.
He told BILD: “I’m really glad for the boys that they beat City. I have a lot of faith in the boys and the coach that they’ll get back to the top!”
Liverpool’s victory was just their third in nine Premier League games this season, and they continue to lag far behind Arsenal, who are now leading the league.
Klopp’s team is in eighth, 14 points behind the Gunners and 10 points behind City in second place.
However, after a shaky start to the season, the Reds will have renewed confidence thanks to the manner of Sunday’s victory.
Pep’s team’s resolute defense was denied by Klopp’s team, and even though VAR was required to overturn Phil Foden’s goal, they deserved to win.
After Alisson initiated a counterattack with a long kick, Salah scored one-on-one with Ederson to make the difference, and Virgil van Dijk led the defense to a much-needed clean sheet.
The incident confirmed the Liverpool center’s belief that Mane shouldn’t be missed.
When asked if Mane’s departure had hampered the team before now, he responded to Sky Sports, “That’s funny, but I don’t think it’s that personally.
Sadio was obviously a huge player for us, and although we weren’t eager to let him go, he wanted to leave.”
