After netting Liverpool’s opener against Aston Villa, Sadio Mane has now registered at least 20 goals in three consecutive seasons.
His Anfield strike takes him to 20 goals across all competitions for this season, totalling 79 goals 34 assists since his first appearance in red (via Transfermarkt). Mane signed from Southampton in 2016 for a fee of £34 million (via BBC Sport). The Senegal international is now worth a reported £108 million.
Can Liverpool reach 100 points this season?
Mane’s 16-goal Premier League campaign helped his side clinch their first ever Premier League trophy and first title win in 30 years. Their impressive season makes the Reds the fastest team to wrap up the league title, with seven games to spare (via ESPN).
Liverpool fans have swarmed to Twitter to show their appreciation on the club’s official post. One supporter has branded him ‘world class’ which is an apt description for a player who is part of the reigning Club World Cup winning side.
