Senegal international Sadio Mane is made out of granite and he is an absolute machine according to Jamie Redknapp.
Redknapp, who is a Liverpool FC legend, is a big fan of the reigning CAF African Footballer of the Year, Mane.
The retired midfielder feels that Mane has proved his doubters wrong since he joined Liverpool from fellow English club Southampton in 2016.
“When they signed him from Southampton there were a few raised eyebrows, but he has just been incredible,” Redknapp told Sky Sports.
“He’s made out of granite. He’s so strong, he’s brilliant in the air, he attacks the back post as well as anybody and he can finish off with either foot.
The former England international went on to laud Mane as a phenomenal player.
“He is just a phenomenal player, great at playing off that side, where he’ll put the ball into the frontman and Roberto Firmino will set him up,” he added.
“He is an absolute machine in every single game. He gets scrappy goals, great goals, he doesn’t care, and that’s what sets him apart.”
Mane has been involved in 21 goals in the English Premier League (EPL) this season – recording seven assists and 14 goals.
The league has been suspended due to the coronavirus outbreak.
