Watch: Sadio Mane rounds goalie and ‘megs defender to score for Liverpool
Liverpool took on Bologna in two hour-long friendlies at their pre-season camp on Thursday and Sadio Mane showed he’s fighting fit and as sharp minded as ever with a goal to put the Reds 2-0 up.
Diogo Jota opened the scoring in the seventh minute after some poor Bolgna defending.
Mane repeated the trick ten minutes later, pressing high up to pounce on a loose pass before rounding the goalkeeper and slotting the ball through a defender’s legs to double the advantage.
Mane did not have the best of times in 2020-21. In May, he said it was the “worst season” of his career.
Asked why, he told Canal plus: “I will struggle to give you an answer. Personally I don’t know. I will keep on working hard – and perhaps in time this situation will pass.”
If this evidence is anything to go by, it looks like he’s been working very hard indeed.
