Liverpool star Sadio Mane is hoping to win more trophies with the club this season, after playing an integral role in helping the Reds to Uefa Champions League glory just a few months ago.
Mane, 27, won the penalty for the opening goal which teammate Mohamed Salah converted, as the Merseyside club beat English Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur in Madrid to clinch their sixth European crown.
“It was a special moment for me, and for my teammates,” Mane told liverpoolfc.com. “When I was younger, I grew up watching Champions League – especially the finals.
“So it was always a dream to play in the final. After scoring in it the season before but losing, going on to win it is an incredible feeling. I could not believe it!
“When we came back to Liverpool with the trophy, it was just incredible to discover how much it meant to the people here. The mood of the city was just crazy!
Mane, who has already scored four goals in five games across all competitions this season, is hoping to add to his trophy collection this season.
“Winning it and seeing how much it meant has given us all more motivation this season to perform, and win more trophies for this club,” he concluded.
