Liverpool Legend Believes Sadio Mané Deserves Player Of The Season Award
Liverpool legend Ian Rush believes that Sadio Mané deserves to be crowned player of the year.
The Senegal international has been in good form this season for the English Premier League champions notching 21 times, two less than team-mate Mohamed Salah.
However, Reds skipper Jordan Henderson appears to be the front-runner to contest the title with Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne. The awards will be announced on Friday.
Rush, Liverpool’s record goalscorer, believes Mane should also be considered among the front-runners.
“It’s been very difficult. I am biased as I like strikers and I think Mane has been fantastic,” he told the PA news agency.
“Jordan Henderson has been incredible and Virgil Van Dijk is Van Dijk but I think Mane has been fantastic this season.
“People say Salah hasn’t been as good as he has been and we all know that but he’s still our top goalscorer.
“It just shows how good he was when he scored those 43 goals (in his maiden campaign at the club three years ago).
“People are judging him on that and that was an incredible season and you are not going to get that again.
“He is still doing a great job but Mane seems to have upped his game this season.”
Despite winning the Premier League – their first title in 30 years – at a canter, there has been questions asked about the depth of Jurgen Klopp’s squad.
