Jamie Carragher captioned Sadio Mane is his favorite Liverpool player and warned the striker against joining Bayern Munich.
Mane has been in top form for the Reds since the turn of the year, scoring the winner in Tuesday night’s 2-1 Premier League win over Aston Villa.
The Senegalese striker’s contract expires next year and he is being linked with a move to Bayern Munich this summer.
However, Carragher, the former Liverpool defender, doesn’t want Mane to leave his old club as he believes the 30-year-old is the best player to keep an eye on.
Speaking to Sky Sports, he said: “Sadio Mane is my favorite player. He’s the one I’m watching. Despite Mo Salah’s numbers…he wins the golden boot. There’s just something about Mane.
“He sacrificed himself. The shift he puts on. Big fan of Sadio Mane. I’m sure he’s not going anywhere. Since I will not let him go to Bayern Munich. He’ll have to deal with me.”
So far in 2022, Mane has scored 16 goals for Liverpool which has boosted the club’s bid by a quadruple.
Having spent most of his career on the left wing, Mane has been in action as a centre-forward in recent months as Jurgen Klopp tried to house new signing Luiz Diaz.
By playing a central role, he now played in all positions in the top three for the Reds.
Carragher believes Mane’s versatility sets him apart from Liverpool’s other attackers; Mohamed Salah, Diaz, Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino.
He added: “I love him, I absolutely love him and not just because he’s a great player and what he’s done for Liverpool
“He came in on the right wing first, then Salah came in so he had to go left, he’s fantastic.
‘Diaz comes in so he switches to centre-forward. He’s always moving for someone else, but his performance doesn’t slow down, he’s still producing.
“All of those five attacking players are great players, but asking them to play another position in those front three wouldn’t be at their best.
“But it doesn’t seem to matter where he plays in these front three, you get the same thing out of him.”
