After their 7-0 drubbing of Spartak Moscow on Wednesday in the UEFA Champions League, Senegal and Liverpool attacker Sadio Mane says he enjoys his football.

The Lions of Teranga international was on the scoresheet as they booked their spot in the Last 16 of the European tournament.

Mane also expressed delight in playing alongside Philippe Coutinho, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino – who all scored in their massive win.


Having scored seven goals in 15 games in all competitions this season, the 25-year-old is savouring his moment with the forwards.

"I'm very happy to play alongside all these great players,” Mane told club website.

"I'm enjoying playing with them, they make it easier for me, so I'm happy for that.

"Everybody has spoken about us, but the whole performance of the team was always great.

"Without them, we are nothing, so it's everybody. The whole performance of the team was great tonight.

"We played fantastic football and we deserved to win because we created many chances and scored without conceding."

The Reds are set to face off against Everton in the English Premier League on Sunday's Merseyside derby and Mane will hope to be on the scoresheet once again.
