Speaking on Skysport, he said: Sadio Mane’s my favorite player. He’s the one I watch. Even though Mo Salah’s numbers…he wins the golden boot. There’s just something about Mane.
He added: ‘I love him, I absolutely love him to bits and not just because he’s a great player and what he’s done for Liverpool
‘He initially came in on the right wing, then Salah came in so he had to move to the left, he’s fantastic.
‘Diaz comes in so he moves to centre-forward. He’s always moving for someone else, but his performance doesn’t drop, he still produces.
‘All of those five attacking players are great players, but to ask them to play a different position in that front three, they wouldn’t be at their best.
‘But it doesn’t seem to matter where he plays in that front three, you get the same out of him.’
