Liverpool midfielder Fabinho says Sadio Mane was key to him eventually settling at Anfield.
Fabinho says Mane has been crucial to his personal turnaround.
“Sadio Mane is a genuinely impressive player, he’s tireless, playing in every game with such high levels of intensity and concentration,” he told the Reds’ official website.
“His technical ability goes without saying, he always makes a difference for us.
“He’s a complete player – he gives you the option of a short pass or a long ball, he contributes to the build-up and creation of play as well. He’s a great player in amazing form, which is really important for his confidence.
“Off the pitch I chat with him quite a bit as we both speak French, my French is still better than my English. He’s a great lad. Sadio has been a really important player for us this season.”
