Liverpool's new signing Sadio Mane has said he's convinced the club is the right one for him after completing his move from Southampton.

The Senegal international put pen-to-paper on a five-year deal according to the Liverpool Echo for a fee believed to be worth £30 million. 

Mane told the official Liverpool website that he said 'yes' straight away after hearing of interest from Reds' boss Jurgen Klopp: “I knew Liverpool were interested in me, I had some [other] opportunities, but I think for me this is the right club, the right coach and the right moment to change.

“I am very happy to be a part of Liverpool Football Club.

“He [Klopp] said he wanted me to come to play for Liverpool. I didn’t even have to ask myself, I said straight away ‘yes, I am interested’ because I know Liverpool.

“I am convinced Liverpool are the right club for me with the right coach.”

Mane was impressive in his displays against Liverpool last season - scoring four goals in three games, including inspiring a comeback for Southampton when they found themselves two goals down to Liverpool in August. 

Liverpool have clearly felt the need to address the attacking midfield area in the side. Mane can provide goals and pace to the team as Klopp would want a greater contribution on the goalscoring front from different areas of the team. 

He joins Marko Grujic, Joel Matip and Loris Karius this summer as Klopp's squad ahead of his first full season in charge of the club begins to take shape.

After an eighth place finish last term, and missing out on silverware after losing two cup finals, Klopp will be hoping his side can improve both in the league and in terms of trophies.
