Jamie Carragher: Mane more important for Liverpool than Salah
Mane opened the scoring with a header and Salah scored a stunning goal as Liverpool beat Chelsea 2-0 at Anfield to return top of the Premier League table.
The African duo is going through a fine season with Salah topping the Premier League goalscorers chart alongside Sergio Aguero with 19 goals, while the Senegal international only two goals behind.
“I’m a massive fan of Mane. People talk about Jurgen Klopp, the signings of Salah, Van Dijk, unbelievable. Mane is the one that got Liverpool back. If you think, he was Klopp’s first big signing, paid £30m,” Carragher told Sky Sports.
“He was the signing that got Liverpool into the top four. The next season it was the Champions League final, this season it’s challenging for the title. It’s not just scoring, being top of the charts, getting goals when it’s 4-0 and banging a couple in at the end of the game, it’s the importance of the goals Mane is getting.”
“You think about it and I think sometimes he goes under the radar. You’ve got Salah, Van Dijk at the back, the goalkeeper. Liverpool are going for a first title in almost 30 years. He’s the best wide player Liverpool have had for 30 years.”
“You have to go back to John Barnes since Liverpool have had a wide player like that.”
