Senegal and Liverpool attacker Sadio Mane says his teammate Mohamed Salah is faster than him and praised his technique.

Since joining Liverpool in 2016, Mane has been known as the fastest man in the Reds' front-line, as his blistering pace caused nightmares to the opposition’s defenders.

However, with the new man arriving in town in Salah, he has established himself as a fierce competitor and has raised the bar higher for all Liverpool players.


The record-breaking signing proved his worth, scoring 14 Premier League goals (20 in all competitions), which made him the current league top scorer.

“I think he (Salah) is quicker than me! Mo is quicker than me!,” Mane told Liverpool FC magazine.

“Mo hasn’t tried to have a race with me yet but he is also very quick. He has great speed and gives a lot to the team, but we must also try to do our best to help him score many more goals.

“Honestly, we attack a lot in this team and we can always score many goals. I am very happy to be part of this great attacking team and play alongside so many great players.

“I’m very happy to have Mo in our team. He is a great player and a great personality. I always enjoy playing with him in the team and the other boys too.

“It is easy to play alongside great players like Mo. We just need to be in the same team all season so we can get to know each other better so that it is easier for us in games, so we can do things in the game.”
