Jamie Carragher has admitted that his reaction to Sadio Mane's transfer to Liverpool in 2016 "Has not aged well" after he questioned the fee.

Despite impressing for the Saints, many people - including Carragher - questioned why Liverpool spent more than £30m to secure his services.

Carragher admits old tweet 'hasn't aged well'.

Now, nearly six years after Carragher tweeted about Mane's move to Anfield, the Liverpool legend has - happily - confessed that he couldn't have been more wrong.

"He wrote in the Telegraph :"When Mane joined Liverpool in June, 2016, I gave my immediate verdict on the deal via social media.

"His fee from Southampton was widely reported to be £37m. When I spoke to Liverpool's chief executive at the time, Ian Ayre, he was keen to stress the cost was nearer £32m. The distinction was important because the higher figure would have made Mane Liverpool's most expensive ever signing."

The Sky Sports pundit also suggested that Mane is the Premier League's most likely Ballon d'Or winner, ahead of teammate Mohamed Salah.
