MANE VOTED PLAYER OF THE SEASON AT LIVERPOOL
Posted On June 2, 2017
Former Southampton star Sadio Mane moved to Anfield last summer.
He impressed heavily and he would easily make any list of best summer signings. The forward was named the Player of the Season at Liverpool for his commendable displays this term. He also picked up the Players’ Player of the Season honours on Tuesday.
The Senegalese star scored 13 goals in 27 games since his move to the Merseyside. He had to leave the team to appear in the African Nations Cup in January but he made instant impact as he returned. Injuries limited his appearances for the rest of the season but he had done enough to warm him way into the hearts of the fans and his teammates.
“I just want to thank my teammates and supporters for giving me this honour. It means so much to me. I feel at home at this club and in this city. My teammates, the staff, the manager and the supporters have all made me feel so welcome since I joined the club.
“I have loved every minute of playing for Liverpool this season and can’t wait to get back fit to help the team again,” the player said.
Emre Can’s stunning bicycle kick was voted the Goal of the Season. The German scored the only goal against Watford as the Reds battle for a top four finish.
Lucas Leiva received a Special Recognition Award for his efforts in his ten-year stay at Anfield. The 30-year old is the longest serving player at the club but there are doubts over his continued stay next season.
The Young Player of the Season award went to Trent Alexander-Arnold. He is one of the brightest prospects at Anfield after graduating from the club’s academy.
