Sadio mane is no doubt one of Liverpool’s most important players since his arrival at Liverpool in 2016 but his impact this season has been way short of his normal expectations due to the fact that he has only scored seven Premier League goals, the last of which was on January 28 which is unlike the Senegal international who has  competed for the Premier League Golden Boot.

Mane have been struggling with a tight schedule over the past three seasons but Klopp insists physical fatigue has nothing to do with the way he has struggled; Liverpool’s manager has hinted Sadio Mane’s issues may be associated with his level of confidence as he expects one good performance will change the tide.

However, waiting for such to happen Is less likely and in doubt as Klopp has Roberto Firmino fully fit again and is considering playing the Brazilian alongside Mohamed Salah and Diogo Jota as Liverpool seek to correct the 7-2 defeat they suffered in Birmingham last October.

“We all know how good Sadio Mane is, what a player he is and what he did for us,’ said Klopp.

“But obviously the numbers scoring-wise are not great at the moment and he knows that. For a player with the mind-set of Sadio, he wants to do extremely well. But this is the situation he is in.

 

“Each striker in the world knows these kind of situations. I’m not concerned but I see it as well (that his form isn’t the best), it’s clear. We work on it. It’s the only answer I can give. The schedule over the last three years was for a lot of players in world football a tough one.

“For him, as well, that’s true, but I don’t think that’s the reason. There is no physical problem for Sadio, not a real one – we all need breaks from time to time, that is clear – but it’s not a general problem.”
