Ex Leeds United and Middlesbrough forward, Noel Whelan feels Sadio Mane has been better than his teammate, Mohamed Salah in the last three seasons.
Noel recently revealed that Mane definitely deserves a new Liverpool deal for his performance in recent years.
According to him, keeping the Senegalese at the club is important for the team because he has been absolutely exceptional for the Reds on and off the pitch.
He added that by keeping their star players from clubs like Real Madrid and Barcelona, Liverpool would be showing its strength as a football club with ambition.
His words, “It is massively important they get him tied down to a new deal,”
“Show the player what he is worth and reward him for the performances he has put in. He has been exceptional. Over the past three seasons, he has been absolutely crucial and better than Salah.
“Liverpool are showing their credentials by keeping hold of players because usually when Real Madrid or Barcelona come calling – players jump off.
“Liverpool are showing their strength. They have the money to match Real Madrid and they are serious about retaining the title and going further in the Champions League. To do that you need to keep these players.
“I am sure Liverpool are telling Sadio Mane they will be investing this summer to make them even stronger.”
