Mane: We will try to win UCL

Liverpool winger Sadio Mane told about the team’s plans for the rest of the season and shared his opinion on participation in the Premier League.

It's hard to find decent epithets to describe Liverpool's 2021 game. Jurgen Klopp's team won only four matches in all tournaments in 12 bouts in total and have fallen behind the Premier League leaders by 19 points.

Moreover, the Reds have lost four league games in a row and their last four games at Anfield. Therefore, because of such results, it is not worth waiting for them to fight for the championship title this season. This was previously said by the coach of Liverpool Jurgen Klopp and also Sadio Mane recently confirmed the words of the German. Moreover, the Senegalese stated that the priority for Liverpool this season will be the Champions League, where Liverpool have not yet lost the chance of success,

“At the start of the season, we were targeting the Champions League, Premier League and cup tournaments. I can say that it's all over for us in the Premier League at the moment, because the gap is too great. We mentally tell ourselves never to give up, and we will not.

But, of course, Manchester City are a great team and getting into the top four is our main goal now. And the Champions League. We know it won't be easy, because we will have to beat the best teams in Europe. But that's what we're here for, if possible. So we will try to win the Champions League,” Mane said.

In the first leg of the Champions League round of 16, Liverpool defeated RB Leipzig 0:2, which significantly improved the chance of reaching the quarterfinals. So far, the game of the Merseysiders does not inspire success as the absence of key players continues to make a difference to the team. Moreover, in the match with Everton, Jordan Henderson was injured, which will entail a new pair in the center of defense Kabak - Phillips.

The only positive thing is Diogo Jota's return to the training process. But for now, the Portuguese needs to get in shape to really compete with the attacking three and motivate Mane, Salah and Firmino to be more smart about their moments on the pitch.
