In Focus: Magic Mane's top 10 Liverpool moments
Sadio Mane has left Liverpool for Bayern Munich after six years at Anfield.
The Senegalese sensation bagged 120 goals and picked up six trophies during his time on Merseyside.
We take a look at his 10 best moments in a Reds shirt as he leaves the club a legend.
10. Silky Sadio (December 2018)
Liverpool cruised to a 3-1 home victory over bitter rivals Manchester United in their first meeting of the 2018-19 season.
Mane opened the scoring that day, superbly controlling Fabinho’s lofted pass into the box on his chest and volleying an emphatic finish past David de Gea.
The Reds went on to finish their Premier League campaign in second, just an agonising point behind Manchester City.
9. Backheel beauty (February 2019)
Later that same season, Liverpool fired five past Watford at Anfield with their African ace again showing his very best on home turf.
Mane opened the scoring with an excellent header into the top corner from a perfectly weighted cross from Trent Alexander-Arnold.
But the standout moment of the game was his second of the match, when he produced a stunning moment of inspiration, controlling the ball and backheeling it into the net past a helpless Ben Foster.
8. Southampton stunner (August 2019)
Liverpool started their visit to St Mary’s on the back foot early on and were fortunate to be level approaching half-time.
But a touch of brilliance from Mane in first-half stoppage time saw him rifle an unstoppable effort from the edge of the box into the far corner against his old club.
The visitors ran out 2-1 winners, picking up a crucial three points in their title-winning season.
7. Porto perfection (February 2018)
Mane scored the only hat-trick of his Liverpool career in another five-star performance from the Reds, this time in the first leg of their 2018-19 Champions League last-16 tie against Porto.
Jurgen Klopp's men ran riot and emerged 5-0 winners at the Estadio do Dragao thanks to their No10's clinical edge in front of goal.
The strike that completed his hat-trick was the pick of the bunch as he drilled a powerful shot into the right corner past future Wolves stopper Jose Sa to round off an impressive night's work.
The Merseysiders went on to lose the Champions League final that season, going down 3-1 to Real Madrid in Kyiv.
6. Villa villain (November 2019)
Klopp’s outfit produced another vital victory in their title-winning campaign in their visit to Villa Park.
They showed the true mark of champions as they salvaged all three points despite trailing in the 87th minute.
Andrew Robertson equalised from Mane’s delightful left-footed cross to the back post before the predatory forward found the back of the net with a dramatic late header.
5. Dream debut (August 2016)
Mane made his debut in Liverpool colours in their trip to the Emirates to kick off their 2016-17 campaign.
The speedster made a bursting run down the right flank, turned Calum Chambers inside out and fired a bullet into the top-left corner with his weaker left foot to give his side a 4-1 lead.
Liverpool edged the Gunners 4-3 on the day and finished fourth that season, a point clear of the North London outfit.
4. Mane of the moment (November 2019)
Liverpool struck a blow to City’s title hopes at Anfield in the back end of 2019, with an important 3-1 victory that gave them a nine-point lead over their rivals.
Fabinho and Mohamed Salah gave the Reds an early 2-0 lead before Mane buried the Citizens with their third goal after half-time.
Jordan Henderson’s deep cross provided the athletic attacker the chance to net a diving header at the back post, demonstrating his terrific aerial ability yet again despite standing at 5ft 9in.
3. Derby drama (December 2016)
Mane was quickly becoming a favourite among the Liverpool faithful following his £34million move as he bagged a 94th-minute winner at local rivals Everton.
Daniel Sturridge’s mishit shot rebounded off the right post and Mane was quickest to react for a simple tap-in which sent the away end into raptures at Goodison Park as the visitors celebrated a 1-0 victory.
2. Wembley win (April 2022)
Liverpool had the tough task of overcoming Pep Guardiola's Citizens at Wembley in their FA Cup semi-final last season.
Ibrahima Konate put the Reds ahead before Mane stunned City with a brace that gave his side a 3-0 lead at half-time, turning up on the big occasion once again.
Second-half goals from Jack Grealish and Bernardo Silva were not enough to take the game into extra-time and Klopp's side held on for a 3-2 win before going on to defeat Chelsea on penalties in the final.
1. Bayern brilliance (March 2019)
Liverpool had it all to do in their last-16 second-leg clash at Bayern Munich after a goalless draw at Anfield.
But the away side were set on their way to a famous 3-1 win thanks to an iconic goal from their Senegalese star.
The tricky winger demonstrated his immense technical and finishing ability, perfectly controlling Virgil van Dijk’s long ball on the edge of the box to catch goalkeeper Manuel Neuer out before turning and chipping the ball into the back of the net.
Mane bagged his second through a header as his side booked a place in the quarter-finals in the season they clinched their sixth Champions League title with victory over Tottenham.
