James Milner Hails ‘Ridiculous’ Sadio Mane Right after Bayern Munich Heroics


Liverpool’s James Milner has described Sadio Mane’s opening target against Bayern Munich on Wednesday as ‘ridiculous’.

Mane was discovered by a raking pass by defender Virgil van Dijk, which the Senegal forward killed immediately ahead of swivelling previous goalkeeper Manuel Neuer and providing the Reds the lead. Post-match, Milner had absolutely nothing but praise for his forwards and singled out Mane for his prolific kind.

Liverpool’s ​official website quote ​Milner’s interview with ​BT Sport: “We defended quite effectively, didn’t give them as well considerably, and the front 3 have been outstanding once more.

“Sadio [Mane] is on fire. The 1st target was ridiculous truly, how he has completed it off – the calmness and the finish. He is on fire at the moment and hopefully that continues for the rest of the season.”

Mane went on to score ​Liverpool’s third target in the ​3-1 away victory with a diving header from a ​Mohamed Salah cross – his third Champions League target of the season.

Milner is rather ideal to say that his teammate is on fire, as the brace against ​Munich was Mane’s second double in as a lot of games.

With eight objectives in eight games, Mane is now a single target away from reaching 20 for the season, which would equal his tally for the entire of final season.

Milner, Mane and co. will take immense self-confidence from their progression to the Champions League quarter final stage and into ​their return to Premier League action this weekend, as they travel to West London to face ​Fulham on Sunday.
