JAMIE REDKNAPP: Sadio Mane’s reaction to his 100th goal in English football sums up his humble nature… he wasn’t even aware of his milestone!
- Liverpool star Sadio Mane showed his humble nature after his goal vs Norwich
- The winger wasn’t aware that the strike was his 100th goal in English football
- Mane is fully focused on Liverpool’s success as opposed to any personal glory
I was in the Sky Sports studio at Carrow Road and Mane, having been told he’d just hit his century, said: ‘Really? Wow. Thank you.’
He had not gone into that game thinking about reaching that personal milestone — he wasn’t even aware of it!
Sadio Mane demonstrated his humble nature after scoring Liverpool’s winner against Norwich
He went into it thinking solely about Liverpool getting the win they needed. This is such a team effort from Jurgen Klopp’s men.
Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino could not breach Norwich’s resilient back line, but Mane came off the bench and did the job. So who wins Player of the Year?
It could be anyone from Jordan Henderson to Virgil van Dijk to Trent Alexander-Arnold — and Mane is in the equation, too. Their unassuming superstar.
