Sadio Mane believes life would be harder for him and Mohamed Salah were it not for the work of fellow forward Roberto Firmino (Jason Cairnduff/PA) Liverpool’s Sadio Mane has sprung to the defence of fellow forward Roberto Firmino.

But Mane – whose own goal tally of 11 from 32 appearances is five short at the same stage last season – believes without the hard-pressing forward, he and Mohamed Salah would get fewer chances.

“But it is part of football, (people) always seeing the goals scored.

“He deserves more credit than me and Mo, for sure,” Mane told ESPN Brazil.
