Sadio Mane reassures Liverpool fans, as he sights on Premier League records

Date published: Tuesday 30th June 2020 10:54

Sadio Mane has made it clear Liverpool will not ease up in the Premier League as they aim to achieve “bigger and bigger things”.

Chelsea’s win over Manchester City last week meant that the title was heading to Liverpool for the first time since 1990.

Jurgen Klopp’s men have yet to play since claiming their first top-flight title for 30 years, but when they do resume against Manchester City on Thursday Mane says they have a number of records in their sight.

Klopp’s men have already set a number of Premier League records including the best start ever and the biggest ever lead in history.

Liverpool need another 14 points from a possible 21 to equal Man City’s record of 100, while they could also become the first side ever to win all their home games.

The Reds are also chasing the most wins, most away wins and the biggest winning margin in Premier League history.

There’s plenty to go at and Mane says they are hungry.

 

 

 

Mane told the club’s official website: “It’s a special moment and a unique moment. It has been a long [time], waiting for the title and finally we got it and you can see how happy the players, the staff, the manager, [the people] around the club, all over the world the supporters are.

“It’s just an incredible moment and now we have to enjoy this moment and at the same time make sure we are ready for the next games.

“I think this is another step of all of us in our career for what we want to achieve, because as football players you have to be always professional and always hungry in a good way to win everything.

“I think we have a great team, great staff and the club is amazing, so we have another step and big things to achieve so we won’t stop here.

“We just have to believe in ourselves still and keep working harder and be humble for sure – work hard and try to achieve bigger and bigger things with this club.”

“We are going to take it game by game and try to win all of them because it’s our dream and really important for us.”
