Jurgen Klopp admits world-class Sadio Mane is in bicycle kick mood

Three stunning goals from Sadio Mane, Mo Salah, and Luis Diaz helped Liverpool claim a 3-1 win over Norwich City.

Both the AFCON finalists scored monumental goals on their return. While Mane scored his 108th goal, Salah completed a total of 150 goals for Liverpool.

After dominating the first half of the game, Liverpool were given a scare as Milot Rashica opened the scoreboard for the Canaries just after the interval.

Jurgen Kloppโ€™s men quickly responded with venom, which soon paid off, as Sadio Mane scored from an acrobatc effort.

At the 64th minute, Jordan Hendersonโ€™s long ball into the box was headed towards the goal by Kostas Tsimikas, which was turned in by Maneโ€™s acrobatic bicycle kick.

Manager Jurgen Klopp was awestruck by Maneโ€™s goal and hailed him as a โ€œworld-class striker.โ€

In a post-match interview, the German manager said, โ€œ[Maneโ€™s] goal record is absolutely insane as well, and the goal he scored today [Saturday] maybe shows the whole range of the things he can do.โ€

โ€œHe helped the team today massively with first playing in the centre, then going back to the left-wing, then being in the right moment in the centre, then doing a bicycle kick. Heโ€™s a world-class striker, wherever he will play. Itโ€™s really helpful to have him here.โ€

He also mentioned that the 29-year-old was in a good mood, as he had been trying a bicycle kick in their previous match too.

โ€œHe had two bicycle kicks in Milan, so he is obviously in a bicycle kick mood!โ€

With Manchester City dropping points after a loss to Spurs, Liverpool are now only six points behind the reigning champions with a game in hand.
