Liverpool forward, Sadio Mane has come out to say that he expects a positive next season for the club. He recently revealed that he is expecting great things from a refreshed and fully fit squad once the new campaign starts.
According to him, since he joined the Reds, this is actually the first time he has had four weeks or more holiday to recharge his batteries.
Mane added that he and his teammates were all looking sharp in training days ago and he expects the rest to count on the pitch.
His words, “Yeah, sure. I think it’s always important as a player to have a break because I can say since I came to Liverpool this was the first time I have had four weeks or more holidays, so I think that sometimes helps a lot.”
“I could see from day one that everybody was looking sharp, which for me was unbelievable! I am not complaining about having one week or two weeks’ holiday, but I think it’s always extra [helpful] for us to have this long period of holiday.”
“At the same time we have been working in individual training [during the summer], which is also important because you could see from day one that everybody was looking sharp and ready to go for the new season.”
“Well, I think like I said at the beginning, and when I said it, I meant it, for sure. It was not my best season, which I know.”
“Like I always said, it can happen in football but I think it won’t be the same [next] season. For sure, I am more ready, mentally, physically, everything, so I think it will be for myself an exciting season.”
“I think not only me, I think everybody [is excited]! As a player we all become like fans because if you see your team-mate getting back in training and fit, you just say, ‘Wow!'”
“When I see Virgil, Joe and Joel, after every training session I say, ‘My friend, how are you feeling?’ because I think to have everybody back in the team is just incredible.”
“Because we know what they are capable of doing for the team and for us the most important thing is the team, so having those players fit, 100 per cent – I think you can always see the smiles of the boys and say: ‘Wow, what a season it’s going to be for us again’.”
