Mane claims he is friends with Salah on and off the pitch
Liverpool are on the verge of reaching the Champions League final, after firing five goals past Roma in the first leg, and although Mane finds it important to stay humble before the game at the Olimpico stadium, he has high hopes the Reds will go through.
In an interview with Daily Mail, Mane said: “Their stadium is very passionate but I think Anfield is No 1 in the world so I don’t think any other stadiums will impress us.
“We are going to respect them and try to play as usual, and give our best.”
Liverpool currently hold the strongest attack in this Champions League campaign, and the best in the club’s history in the competition.
Mane thinks this dynamic football they are playing is down to the players’ relationship on and off the pitch.
“I love to play alongside these great players. We understand each other, try to move for each other. Honestly, it’s fun.
“Out on the pitch we are friends, not just teammates. Our big secret is to love to give each other assists and that’s what we try to do.
“You can see on the pitch I always want to give (the ball) to Mo, Mo always wants to give it to me as well. I think this makes us a better team. I think that ego has never helped any club, any team, to go forward.
“We are serious when we need to be but I think you always have to enjoy. Football is our job and we love to do it.”
Roma will entertain Liverpool this Wednesday on May 2nd.
