Sadio Mane has explained how Jurgen Klopp’s tactical know-how, motivation and management skills rank him the best in the world.
The German tactician led the Anfield outfit to their first Champions League triumph in 14 years last season, with the Senegal international playing a key role, scoring 26 goals across all competitions.
The Reds currently lead the Premier League table with 34 points, eight above their closest rivals Leicester City and nine ahead of reigning champions Manchester City.
Mane, who has played in France and Austria before joining Liverpool from Southampton in the summer of 2016, has spoken of the qualities of his boss.
I would struggle to describe just how successful he has been for Liverpool,” Mane told the Official Liverpool Monthly Magazine.
“Everybody can see what he has done for this club, for this city and the quality he has as a manager.
There are a lot of good managers in Europe but what I can say is that our manager 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 and I would say he is the best in the world.”
Mane, who has seven league goals in 12 appearances this term, will hope to continue his impressive goalscoring form when Liverpool visit Selhurst Park to take on Crystal Palace on Saturday.
