Jurgen Klopp heaps praise on 30-year-old Liverpool star after astonishing performance against Aston Villa
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has showered praise on Sadio Mane following the winger’s performance against Aston Villa.
The Reds visited Villa Park for a tricky Premier League encounter on Tuesday (10 May) and found themselves behind after just three minutes.
They came back level through Joel Matip in the sixth minute and the two teams seemed evenly matched for much of the game.
Speaking after the game, Klopp was full of praise for the Senegalese forward, saying (as quoted by Sky Sports):
“He’s a machine, I told him after the game. [He’s a] massive player, his physicality is brutal. The mix of technique, desire and physicality.”
“You can see [he has] a few yards in the legs, we can see it to be honest. He’s a fantastic, world-class player.”

The Englishman was particularly impressed with the forward’s work defensively, stating (as quoted by Sky Sports):
“His performance was incredible. The work he does of the ball for the team was incredible, defending at the end.
“But his quality in and around the box – it’s the gym isn’t it with that neck muscles!”
