Mane: Van Dijk’s return is amazing .. And the Liverpool fans are an additional incentive for the players

Senegalese footballer, Sadio Mane, confirmed that he is happy to play in the English Premier League, which is one of the best leagues in the world.

He explained that his desire has always been to play against the best opponents and also win titles.

Mane said in his statements to the official website of Liverpool FC:

“My childhood dream was to play against the best players in the world, everyone knows that the Premier League is one of the best leagues in the world, so I love every second here. As a footballer, you always want to play against the best opponents, and also to win trophies. So it’s great to play here and to develop within this great, legendary club with our great fans.”

Mane spoke about the fans’ return to the Anfield stands again, saying:

“Our fans are back on the pitch as an added incentive because, as I’ve always said, Liverpool fans are the best fans in the world. It was great to play at Anfield at full capacity again. Getting them back is huge for us and they can play a huge role in our success.”

Mane commented on the return of Dutch defender Virgil van Dijk to participate again with Liverpool after recovering from injury, saying:

“Having one of the best defenders in the world on your team can only be described as amazing.”

Mane explained:

“Obviously last year was a tough time for him but now he’s always smiling! And of course we’re all happy for him. He’s a very professional athlete who takes care of his body all the time and I wasn’t surprised to see him back at his old level.”

Mane led Senegal to a precious victory over its guest, Togo, in the match that brought the two teams together, on Wednesday evening, at the “Lat Dior” stadium in Tias, in the first round of Group H in the African qualifiers for the 2022 World Cup.

Liverpool striker Sadio Mane scored Senegal’s first goal in the 56th minute, after a wonderful incursion into the opponent’s penalty area.
