Sadio Mane displayed ‘ridiculous’ skill while scoring Liverpool’s first goal in their 3-1 win at Bayern Munich on Wednesday to help the Premier League club ease into the Champions League quarter-finals, team mate James Milner said.
Mane controlled a Virgil van Dijk long ball with a sublime touch that took Rafinha out of the equation and left on-rushing keeper Manuel Neuer stranded, before delicately chipping the ball over Mats Hummels and Niklas Suele and into the net.
The Senegal international also headed in Liverpool’s third of the night for his 10th goal in as many games in all competitions for the Merseyside club.
“Sadio is on fire. The first goal was ridiculous really, how he finished it off, the calmness and the finish,” Milner told reporters. “Hopefully that continues for the rest of the season.”
