Sadio Mane Reminds Me of Raheem Sterling - Liverpool Legend

Sadio Mane Reminds Me of Raheem Sterling - Liverpool Legend

"What a night!' Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp exclaimed after his side's dramatic 3-1 win over Bayern Munich".

Mane's goal gave them the edge but instead adding to their lead when they had the upper hand, Matip's own goal let Bayern back into the game against the run of play.

FC Barcelona haven't only qualified for the quarter finals of the Champions League but, in the contest against Lyon, broke another record in Europe's top tier competition.

Asked if it was an ideal European performance, the No.4 told Liverpoolfc.com: "Very close. They come everywhere we go and it's always a great feeling to play for this club and I'm proud to wear this shirt".

Despite the result, Nicol thinks the performance was nothing to celebrate.

"I think we all know his flaws and one of his biggest flaws was his inconsistency because I don't think he was quite sure what he was going to do, never mind the defenders or anybody else". They didn't go forward, they just sort of sat and waited.


And in explaining the game plan the visitors adopted for the second leg, Van Dijk cited the Reds' courage at either end of the pitch as the ultimate difference.

Guardiola said: "I would like to be more who we are in the first 25 minutes but we were solid, we didn't concede chances and in the last 15 minutes [before the break] and second half we were incredibly good". I think this is very good for English football. I don't know about the statistics, but my impression is that there were not too many hard situations in and around our box.

"There are some places in the world where whichever team would struggle".

In-form Mane pounced on a needless charge out of his goal by Manuel Neuer in his 100th Champions League appearance, to round the Bayern keeper with a superb turn before chipping his finish into the empty net in the 26th minute.

Nicol also insisted that after improving his touch and finishing in the last few months, Mane is the main man in attack for Liverpool at this moment in time.
