Liverpool forward Sadio Mane has told Reds teammate Andy Robertson to watch out for the dangers posed by new Watford signing Ismaila Sarr, telling the Scotsman that the attacker could beat him for pace.

Sarr – who plays alongside Mane in the Senegal team – moved to Hertfordshire on deadline day in a £30m deal from Rennes, making him the Hornets’ club-record signing.

The 21-year-old has not yet featured for Javi Gracia’s side this season, but speaking to The Athletic, Mane explained how his international teammate could cause havoc in the Premier League.

“He’s rapid. I think defenders will struggle,” the forward said. “Last time I was speaking to [Andy Robertson] I said “Watford have a really good player. I will need to help you more otherwise Ismaila Sarr will kill you, because he is a good dribbler and very, very fast.”

“I’m really happy for him and he made the right choice to come to Watford. For sure I think he will be great.”

When asked about how he felt seeing Sarr featuring in the Premier League for Watford, Mane said: “Wow, a bit jealous, because I won’t see him in Liverpool.”

Sarr starred in the Africa Cup of Nations earlier this summer, putting in impressive performances as Senegal reached the final.
