MANE & KEITA
LIVERPOOL HAVE BEEN FLYING IN THE LEAGUE THIS
SEASON – WHAT’S IT LIKE BEING ON THE INSIDE?
SADIO: You need time to understand it. It’s quite exceptional
to play for Liverpool, historically it’s impressive and we haven’t
won this Premier League trophy which we really want to,
which is close to the heart of the fans.
They’re mad about this trophy and I think we’ve got every
chance of lifting the trophy, but in the Premier League you
never know. And if we finish the season by lifting the trophy,
it will be exceptional for the club and for the fans and for the
