Sadio Mané was the great man at Liverpool on Wednesday evening. The attacker made three goals against FC Porto (0-5) and became the fourth Liverpool player to make a hattrick in the Champions League, after Michael Owen, Yossi Benayoun and Philipep Coutinho. The Senegalese was a happy man.
We have shown football well from the beginning to the end. We’ve created a lot of opportunities and scored five times, so it’s a deserved victory,”says Mané. When asked which hit he liked best, the former Southampton’s outdoor player, among others, said that his third was particularly good at it:”That was a nice shot”.

It’s always nice to play with such big players,”Mané said in front of BT Sport’s camera on Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah,” Everyone talks about us three, but our teammates make it a lot easier for us. They are doing good work behind us. We are the lucky boys who keep scoring. The most important thing is that we play as a team and we did that tonight.
Liverpool stands after Wednesday evening at 28 goals in the Champions League and no other team scored so often in the billions this season. It was also the biggest victory in the knock-out phase of the Champions League since Bayern Munich’s 0-5 victory in February 2009 on Sporting Portugal and the 1-6 victory of Real Madrid on Schalke 04 in February 2014.
