Senegal international Sadio Mane is eager to win English Premier League and UEFA Champions League titles with Liverpool FC this season.
The Reds possess a 13-point lead at the top of the English Premier League, with two games in hand on second-placed Manchester City, ahead of Thursday’s visit to Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Liverpool have already won the UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup this season and Mane is keen to help his side clinch more trophies.
“Until the team is successful and I’m also successful, for me I think it’s necessary to sacrifice myself to give everything possible for the team, and the team will give me [that] back for sure – every single player,” Mane told the club’s official website.
“For sure we achieved things and we want to achieve more and big things with this club. We want to win trophies – Premier League, Champions League again, which won’t be easy, we all know that.
“But what you have seen in these last few years, everything is possible and we can do it and do it again. We just need to be hungry in a good way and push ourselves until the end,” he added.
“When we lost the [Champions League] final against Real Madrid… I think from that everything changed and we said to ourselves, ‘It’s possible’. We also have a young team and from that, I think everything changed.
“We got more belief and we get more confidence and we said, ‘Everything is possible, why not try? We all want to win things, so why can’t we make it together and do it?’ I think that’s working very well.”
Liverpool will also take on Shrewsbury Town and Spanish giants Atletico Madrid in the FA Cup and UEFA Champions League respectively this season.
