SADIO MANE NAMED LIVERPOOL PLAYER OF THE SEASON
Sadio Mane’s decisive displays during his debut season at Liverpool have seen him pick up the club’s Player of the Season accolade.
The 24-year-old, currently recovering after having surgery to repair the meniscus damage in his left knee, recorded 13 goals and five assists following his £30 million switch from Southampton last summer.
He also earned the recognition of his team-mates, who voted him the Players’ Player of the Season, ahead of competitors from Adam Lallana and Roberto Firmino.
Mane succeeds Philippe Coutinho in lifting both awards, a feat the Brazilian pulled off two years in succession – among a haul of eight prizes.
