World News

With Sadio Mane's agent said to be in talks with Bayern Munich, the Senegal international has now spoken out about his situation at Liverpool.

The 30-year-old was the hero in the Reds' 2-1 comeback win over Aston Villa on Tuesday night after he kept his side's title hopes alive with a 65th-minute winner.

Earlier this week, it was reported that the Liverpool forward's representatives met with Bayern Munich sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic last Friday, although no official talks between the clubs have taken place.

The former Southampton star has also been linked with Spanish giants FC Barcelona, with the Merseyside club understood to have not yet begun talks with the forward regarding a contract renewal even though his current deal is set to expire next year.

Despite the uncertainty around his future, though, the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations winner has now insisted he is happy at Anfield.

"Yeah, I am happy here, I think when we win trophies I am happier," Mane said after the match against Villa, according to the Daily Mail.

"But I think I am trying to enjoy every moment, trying to assist my teammates, and I think the boys make it a lot easier for me.

"I am honestly very happy. I am just trying to enjoy every moment and assist my teammates. Without my teammates, I'm nothing."

"He is a machine, I told him after the game," the German tactician said. 

"Massive player! The mix of technique, desire, and physicality... top goal, he's a fantastic, world-class player."
