Sadio Mane scores the fourth goal for Southampton

The 24-year-old impressed last season for Southampton, and Reds fans will be hoping he displays finishing like this next season.

The new Liverpool signing may just have been on the training pitch, but he still demonstrated the turn of pace and finishing skills which persuaded the Reds board to part with a fee reported by BBC Sport to be upwards of £34 million for the Senegalese international.

Last season Mane scored 15 times for Southampton, 11 of which were in the league, making him the Saints top scorer.

As part of that tally, Mane netted a hat trick against Manchester City in one of his last games for the South Coast club, while the 24-year-old also netted a brace against Liverpool at the end of March.

Famously, the season before, he scored the quickest ever Premier League hat trick in a 6-1 rout of Aston Villa. 

The hope is that the dynamic former Saints man will play a vital part both in the turnover of possession high up the pitch for Jurgen Klopp's side, and the dispatching of goals for his new side.
