It was almost lost in Monday night’s fury and European Super League history, but it was great to see Sadio Mane come back on the scoresheet against Leeds.

“It’s a really, really tough time for me, we have to recognize that, but it’s part of football and I already know it, so I’m taking it on and trying to work as hard as I can to help the team more. team. It’s my first time but to be honest I never doubt [myself]. I’m just trying to be more positive than I’ve ever been so that’s it, ”he said on the official website.

And don’t bet against Mane to find the net against the Toons either.
