Klopp: This is why I signed Mane


Liverpool boss delighted to finally have his man

Jurgen Klopp has revealed why he is such a big fan of his new Liverpool signing, Sadio Mane.

The £30million deal for Mane was confirmed earlier today, and Liverpool boss Klopp says he has been well aware for Mane’s qualities since the London 2012 Olympics in which he faced Team GB.

The German added that Mane’s passion about joining Liverpool was clear to see and reckons he will be a ‘very good signing’ for the club.

Klopp told Liverpool’s official website: “I have followed Sadio for a lot of years since his impressive performances in the Olympics in 2012, and then watched his development in Austria and in his time at Southampton.

“Since I came here I have spoken to the staff a lot about him and have always felt he could be a very good signing for us.

“He has a lot of quality, works hard and has a very good goalscoring record.

“When I spoke to him I could tell that he was passionate about joining the club and playing for our fantastic fans.

“I think they will be just as excited about seeing him put on a Liverpool shirt as I am.

“It is great that we have managed to sign him so he can work with us from the first day of pre-season.”
