Diouf: Mane wants to win trophies at Liverpool
Mane joined Liverpool earlier this week for £34m on a long-term contract after agreeing personal terms with the Reds.
The former Senegal and Liverpool striker El Hadji Diouf has supported his compatriot Sadio Mane and backed his move to Anfield, seeing that the 24-year-old has higher chances of winning trophies with the Reds than with the Saints.
“He’s a wonderful player,” Diouf told BBC Sport.
“He’s moved to Liverpool because they want to win a lot of trophies. You get more chance to win things at Liverpool than Southampton.”
Diouf, who played for Liverpool from 2002 to 2005, believes his fellow countryman will face less challenges at Anfield when compared to the ones he personally faced during his stint at the club.
“Mane has to be worried about nothing. Today you don’t have a bad mentality in Liverpool like Steven Gerrard or Jamie Carragher. You don’t have a bad mentality anymore,” the 35-year-old explained.
“Right now they have a good coach with a good mentality. Sadio stayed at Southampton for two years before he signed for Liverpool. He’s not like me, when I came to Liverpool I came from outside England. He’s been in England for two years now so for him it will be more easy.”
Mane completed the move to Anfield after spending two seasons with Southampton, where he scored 25 goals in 75 appearances for the Saints.
