The Senegalese winger has been capped 36 times with 10 goals, and will likely be a part of the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations when it’s staged next January-February in Gabon. The winner goes to the 2017 Confederations Cup in Russia.


“Today is a big day and I am very happy to sign for one of the biggest clubs in Europe.

“It’s a club that has won a lot of trophies and has a big history.

“Now I am looking forward to meeting all the staff and my teammates and starting the season.”

Now will the massively talented but mercurial Mane hit an elite level more consistently at Anfield than he did at St. Mary’s?
