'This is': Sadio Mane shares his favourite goal he has ever scored for Liverpool ahead of the CL final
Sadio Mane has named his favourite ever Liverpool goal ahead of their Champions League final clash with Real Madrid.
Mane scored in the 2018 meeting between the two sides in Kiev, but the Reds ended up on the losing side thanks to a Gareth Bale masterclass.
But that strike on the biggest stage of all is not his favourite in a Liverpool shirt, he said in an interview with Jamie Carragher in the Telegraph.
That actually came in his very first competitive Reds game, a 4-3 away win over Arsenal back in 2016.
Mane names his favourite Liverpool goal
Mane said of the goal, which you can watch below: “This is my favourite Liverpool goal. It was my first game for Liverpool.
“When I got the ball on the right and went past two defenders I was looking for a pass.
“Then I saw I was near the goal and sometimes you don’t know how you score it. You do it, but you can’t repeat it.
“If you come to a new club you want to start well to show your teammates you are important. It gave me a lot of confidence.”
Carragher admitted earlier this month that he had initially misjudged Mane, and that he was now his favourite Liverpool player.
Mane has been crucial in this outstanding season for Liverpool, showcasing his versatility and quality, playing all across the front three.
Another Champions League final could set Liverpool on course for a cup treble and it would be a fitting way for Mane to end his club season.
