The reigning African Footballer of the Year was speaking in an interview with BBC when he revealed that it would be "an honour"" to see Klopp immortalised with a statue outside Anfield following his success with the club.

"For sure I think there will be one because he is a great manager and he is doing very well for the club and the players," Mane said.

"At the same time, he is very friendly with his players so that is one of his big strengths."
