Sadio Mane’s reaction to his 100th goal in English football summarizes the humble nature of Liverpool star
JAMIE REDKNAPP: Sadio Mane’s reaction to his 100th goal in English football summarizes his modest nature … he wasn’t even aware of his milestone!
- Liverpool star Sadio Mane showed his modest nature after his goal against Norwich
- The winger was not aware that the strike was his 100th goal in English football
- Mane is completely focused on Liverpool’s success as opposed to personal glory
Sadio Mane’s reaction to being told that he had just made his 100th goal in the English game said everything. There are no egos in this Liverpool team.
I was in the Sky Sports studio on Carrow Road and Mane, who was told he had just reached his age, said, “Really? Wow. Thank you.’
He hadn’t started thinking in that game to reach that personal milestone – he wasn’t even aware of that!
Sadio Mane demonstrated his modest nature after scoring the Liverpool winner against Norwich
He just started thinking about it and only thought Liverpool could achieve the victory they needed. This is such a team performance by the men of Jurgen Klopp.
Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino could not break the resilient back line of Norwich, but Mane got off the couch and did the job. So who wins the player of the year?
It can be anyone, from Jordan Henderson to Virgil van Dijk to Trent Alexander-Arnold – and Mane is also in the comparison. Their modest superstar.
Mane didn’t even know that his strike was the 100th goal he scored in English football
