Jamie Redknapp is absolutely blown away by Liverpool ace Sadio Mane

Jamie Redknapp talks to the media during the Premier League match between Burnley FC and Tottenham Hotspur at Turf Moor on February 23, 2019 in Burnley, United Kingdom.

The Liverpool star is a key player for Jurgen Klopp's side.

Jamie Redknapp absolutely raved about Liverpool ace Sadio Mane, when writing his regular column for the Daily Mail, suggesting that the Senegalese ace could now be considered as Jurgen Klopp's main man.

Mane, 27, joined the Reds from Southampton in the summer of 2016, for a fee believed to be worth £34 million, according to BBC Sport, and he has gone on to rack up 62 goals and 23 assists in 126 appearances in all competitions for the Merseyside outfit.

 

The Senegal international is now widely considered to be one of the most electrifying forwards in world football, and he is undoubtedly one of the first names on Klopp's Liverpool team-sheet.

And Redknapp shared his belief that Mane has now staked a claim to be the Reds' main man ahead of Mohamed Salah, when writing his regular column for the Daily Mail:

"Sadio Mane is making a great case to be considered Liverpool’s main man above Mohamed Salah. The 27-year-old is producing magic on the pitch and would walk into any team. The statistics highlight his impact. No one has scored more Premier League goals than him in 2019. He took his tally to 15 on Saturday, and not a single one of those has come from the penalty spot. In Liverpool’s last 30 games, Mane has scored 20 goals, Salah has put away 12 and Firmino eight."

Liverpool are looking to win their first top flight title since 1990, and if they are to have any chance whatsoever of doing just that, Mane will have to be on top form between now and the end of the season.

The 27-year-old is a game-changer, a match winner, and if he continues to improve, he could very well be classed as the Reds' most important player.
