Sadio Mane out to achieve ‘bigger things’ after Liverpool’s title triumph

Winning the Premier League title with Liverpool is not enough for Sadio Mane. The forward insists that there still is ‘another step’ for the Reds to take before achieving greatness. Liverpool won the league for the first time in 30 years after Manchester City lost 2-1 at Chelsea last Thursday and Mane says he is still hungry for more.

Liverpool hold an unassailable 23-point lead at the top of the table and have written history to claim the title after just 31 games. The Reds have been tipped to dominate English football for the foreseeable future, but Mane has a warning for himself and his team mates and says the whole squad has to ‘stay hungry’ in order to keep on winning trophies.

“I think this is another step for all of us in our career for what we want to achieve, because as football players you have to be always professional and always hungry in a good way to win everything”, Mane told the official Liverpool website.Β “I think we have a great team, great staff and the club is amazing, so we have another step and big things to achieve so we won’t stop here.”

Mane has been one of Liverpool’s outstanding performers, having scored 19 goals and 12 assists in 40 appearances across all competition. The 28-year-old hails Jurgen Klopp for bringing the best out of him. “He is a great manager and everybody is happy with him,” said Mane. “I am lucky to be working with him for sure, because as a player and a human being I have developed under him which is really important for every player.”

With 7 games to go in the Premier League, Liverpool are on course to break Man City’s all-time record points haul. “I think it’s another step of our careers and what we want to achieve so I can say for myself, it’s part of us and it’s the past now so we have to make sure we [carry on]. Records in football are always there to beat so for sure we want to achieve again something special after being champion.”
