Mané enters the Anfield history books

Liverpool is currently 45-minutes away from booking passage into the knockout stage of this season’s Champions League as they lead Spanish champions Atlético Madrid 2-0 at Anfield, but it was Sadio Mané that stole the night early on when he scored his goal.

Mané put the Reds two goals to the good on Merseyside after Portuguese international Diogo Jota made it 1-0 on 13-minutes, and with his goal, made the Senegalese star the third-highest European goalscorer in Liverpool history.

Club legend Steven Gerrard unsurprisingly leads the list with 41-goals on European nights for his beloved Liverpool, while current club megastar Mohamed Salah sits in second on the list with 31-goals to his name.

It is already an illustrious list of contemporaries and legends past for Mané to be a part of after moving to Anfield in the summer of 2016 when he swapped Southampton’s St. Mary’s Stadium for the northwest of England.

Liverpool star enjoying a good start to the season

His iconic goal at Anfield tonight is just a taste of what Sadio Mané has put on show this season for Jürgen Klopp’s Liverpool outfit.

The Senegalese international has already hit 6-goals in 10-appearances in the Premier League, while his strike tonight is his second in Europe’s top club competition in four outings in group play.

Mané has bounced-back well from a 2020-21 campaign that had many feeling as though he was on his last legs at the club when he hit just 11-goals in the league and a combined 16-goals across 48-appearances.

But if this season – and tonight – is anything to go by, Sadio Mané is very much still at the forefront of a vaunted Liverpool attack.
