Sadio Mane believes wearing the Liverpool jersey brings an incredible feeling ahead of his 100th appearance for the club.
The Senegalese winger will reach his century if he features against Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday, with his 99 Reds matches to date yielding 42 goals.
“Of course, it means a lot to me,” Mane told Premier League Productions of the prospect of representing Liverpool for the 100th time.
“To play at a club like Liverpool is something incredible. I always said, I am very happy to play for this club. Every single day I enjoy being here and I’m looking forward to playing my 100th game. It will mean a lot.
Mohamed Salah is the African Player of the year 2018.

“Thank you to everybody – the club, the fans and the coach for the trust. I will try to do everything with my teammates to win something for this club.”
Jürgen Klopp’s side head to the south coast on the back of successive defeats but Mane, though, senses a determination within the squad to get back to winning ways against the Seagulls.
“The manager is very, very positive,” the forward disclosed to LFC.TV.
“He has a lot of experience and he knows in football [defeats] can happen. The reaction is the most important thing. Everybody is more focused and knows what it would mean for us to win on Saturday.
“We know it will not be easy but we have quality and we’re going to try to do everything to win the game.”
