Liverpool legend John Barnes is of the opinion that Sadio Mane will be able to recover from his goalscoring drought sooner rather than later. The Senegal international has been one of the great scorers for Liverpool and his 80+ goals have helped deliver the likes of the Premier league, Champions League, and UEFA Super Cup titles to Liverpool.Mane, though, has been going through a growth by his high standards as he has only scored two goals in his last 13 matches. The poor run goes back even further, as Liverpoolhave seen the striker get only three goals in the last 18 appearances.
“It’s important to remember that Mane has been one of the most important players in the team and his form is excellent. Perhaps not excellent in terms of number of goals scored, but excellent in terms of what he does for the team. I’d even say that Mane has a lot to do with why we’re at the top of the league; and that’s done both on and off the ball.His goalscoring, his creativity – it’s a package deal. So I don’t see why it’s all doom and gloom for a team that’s top of the league,” said Barnes.
