Liverpool forward Sadio Mané insists that he feels 'very lucky' to be part of the club's front three alongside Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino, stressing that his teammates help to bring the best out of him by making everything so easy.
The Senegal international has been part of a front three which has scored 183 goals across all competitions since the start of the 2017/18 season, and Mané insists that the simplicity that Firmino and Salah play with help to make things so much easier when they're all on the pitch – despite recent rumblings of unsettled relationships behind the scenes.
"I always say it is very easy to work together. Personally, I just think myself very lucky to play alongside these great players," Mané told the official Liverpool magazine. "Every single player who plays alongside them would enjoy it because they are very good players and they make everything easy, so I just enjoy playing alongside them.
“We are all from different countries and speak different first languages but I think football is one language and it is universal so everybody can speak it. It is the same with Mo, Bobby and myself."
Mané added that Liverpool's success over the last two years, especially in the Champions League, hasn't just been down to the club's attacking players.
The 27-year-old lauded manager Jürgen Klopp for his impact on the club in their hunt for silverware in recent years, as well as how the Borussia Dortmund boss has given the entire city a massive lift.
"I would struggle to describe just how good and how successful he has been for Liverpool. Everybody can see what he has done for this club, for this city and the quality he has as a manager," he added.
"[He] always has the right words and the right things to manage his team, especially knowing how to deal with his team. I would always trust his influence on the team. He is a winner."
