In an interview with The Athletic, the Senegal international was asked about the arrival of Ismaila Sarr at Watford, and what his compatriot would bring to league. 

Sarr joined the Hornets for a club record fee of £30 million (R558 million) ahead of the 2019/20 Premier League season, and Mane has admitted that he has already warned his Liverpool teammates about the 21-year-old.

"He's rapid. I think defenders will struggle," Mane said. 

"Last time I was speaking to (Andy Robertson), I said 'Watford have a really good player. I will need to help you more otherwise Ismaila Sarr will kill you, because he is a good dribbler and very, very fast.'"

Mane was also asked how he felt about seeing his compatriot in the jersey of one of Liverpool's Premier League rivals.

"Wow, a bit jealous, because I won't see him in Liverpool," he added lightheartedly.

"I'm really happy for him and he made the right choice to come to Watford. For sure, I think he will be great."

Sarr joined Watford from Ligue 1 side Rennes, for whom he scored 18 goals in 77 appearances during his two-year stay with the club.
