Liverpool News: Mane reflects on his worst season, Salah’s transfer message, the Reds’ valuation in world sport


Mane rues the worst season of his career

Liverpool forward Sadio Mane has admitted that this has been the worst season of his career.

Although the Senegalese forward has managed to score 14 goals across all competitions, the Reds have failed to defend their title properly and they have struggled in the Champions League as well.

Furthermore, there is a decent chance that Liverpool might fail to qualify for the Champions League next season and Mane is struggling to explain the reason behind his side’s struggles this season.

The Reds have had a major injury crisis defensively and it has forced Jurgen Klopp to field makeshift players across the pitch. The lack of balance in the side has resulted in poor performances. 

Mane told Canal Plus: “This is the worst season of my career. I have to admit it.

“If you ask me what is wrong I will struggle to give you an answer. Personally, I don’t know.

“I have always tried to be positive, whether things are going well or badly. I question myself all the time.

“I even underwent a test to take a look at my body. Am I eating the right foods, or has everything changed? But they checked the test results, and everything is fine.

“I need to understand that in life there are ups and downs.

“I will keep on working hard – and perhaps in time this situation will pass.”

Salah sends a message to the club

Meanwhile, the Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has now sent out a clear transfer message.

The 28-year-old has revealed that his future is in the club’s hands and he’s willing to continue at Anfield for as long as possible.

Liverpool are yet to offer him a new contract if the two parties can thrash out an agreement regarding a new bill at the end of the season.

Salah has scored 29 goals across all competitions this season and the Reds must do everything in their power to keep him at the club as long as possible.

“If you ask me, I say I want to stay here [at Liverpool] as long as I can, but as I’ve said before, it’s in the club’s hands,” Salah said.

Liverpool valuation soars under FSG

Meanwhile, Liverpool’s American owners Fenway Sports Group have managed to increase the Premier League club’s value exponentially over the past few years.

According to reports, the Premier League club’s overall value has never been higher in their history and despite the losses they have incurred during the pandemic, Liverpool are currently the 12th most valuable team in world sport.

Apparently, the Reds have grown 165% over the last five seasons thanks to their Champions League and Premier League titles. They are currently valued at £2.93 billion and only French outfit Paris Saint Germain have seen a similar rise.

The French outfit are currently valued at £1.79 billion mainly because of the considerable investment from owners QSI and their partnership with Nike and Air Jordan.
