The Reds legend is a ‘big fan’ of Sadio Mane, hoping he will not leave the club this summer.

Jamie Carragher has selected Sadio Mane as his favourite Liverpool player amid uncertainty around the 30-year-old’s future.

Mane has enjoyed incredible form since returning from Senegal’s title-winning Africa Cup of Nations campaign in February.

The former Southampton star scored his 15th league goal of the season to complete Liverpool’s comeback against Aston Villa on Tuesday. 

With Mane’s contract expiring next summer, reports have emerged of Bayern Munich’s interest in signing the Senegal international.

However, Carragher says he is sure his favourite Liverpool star won’t leave Anfield this summer.

“When I have watched Liverpool as a fan, Sadio Mane is my favourite player,” Carragher told Sky Sports.

“There is just something about Mane. He’s sacrificed himself at times and the shift he puts in.

“He, along with Salah, has been doing that for five years – they are never injured! They are there week in, week out for 90 minutes, getting the numbers up there every week. What they have done for this football club is unbelievable.

“I’m a huge fan of Sadio Mane and I can assure you he will be going nowhere because I will not let him go to Bayern Munich, he’d have me to deal with!

“I love him, absolutely love him to bits. And not just because he’s a great player and what he’s done for Liverpool.”
