‘Better than Ronaldo’ – Liverpool fans find something to cheer about after Saturday

The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern have been waxing lyrical over one-third of their outstanding three-pronged forward line, Sadio Mane. The Senegalese sensation scored his 20th goal of the season when he prodded home Virgil Van Dijk’s header four minutes after Karim Benzema broke the deadlock in the second half.

Sadio Mane’s equaliser, whilst it was only in vain, was his 20th goals of the season in all competitions and his 10th in the Champions League. After Mohamed Salah came off injured following a dubious challenge from Sergio Ramos after the half an hour mark it left the responsibility for Liverpool’s attacking threat on the shoulders of both Mane and Roberto Firmino.

Whilst the threat of Mane was consistent throughout, his goal wasn’t enough to help Jurgen Klopp’s men get past Zinedine Zidane’s Los Blancos on Saturday evening. On paper, Liverpool never stood a chance against the talents of Real Madrid. The Spanish side made it three Champions League wins in a row when the final whistle went in Kiev, although the majority of Liverpool’s stars left the field with their heads held high, none more than Mane, who will be looking forward to the World Cup with Senegal.
