Sadio Mane backs Liverpool stars to fight for historic quadruple


Liverpool forward Sadio Mane believes Jurgen Klopp’s Reds have the players capable of winning an unprecedented quadruple.

The Senegal international was named man of the match in the FA Cup semi-final win over Manchester City, not only for his two goals in the game but for an all-round performance which was one of his best for the club.

Victory kept alive the dream of winning all four trophies this season, with the League Cup already secured, an FA Cup final appearance booked, a Champions League last-four tie against Villarreal to come and only a one-point deficit to make up on Pep Guardiola’s side in the Premier League title race.

“I think it would be early to talk about winning four trophies, but for sure I think we have to fight for it because we have the team to fight for it and we will do everything possible to go for it,” said Mane.

Following a couple of 2-2 draws in the league, Klopp’s side finally got the better of their rivals after a pulsating first half at Wembley blew away their opponents, who were 3-0 down at the break.

City eventually pulled it back to 3-2 but left it too late to force an equaliser.

However, the manner of their comeback and their continued excellence in the Premier League means Mane believes they remain the team to beat.

“We knew it would be a very tough game because Man City, if I don’t say the best team in the world then for sure they are one of the best and we have to respect them,” he added.

“Of course City are the best team in the world. Liverpool want to be the best team in the world, so we are working for it.
