Sadio Mane says he’s fit to start for Liverpool in the UEFA Super Cup meeting with Chelsea tomorrow night after a very busy summer.

Sadio Mane helped Senegal reach the Africa Cup of Nations Final last month.

And although he couldn’t win it, he still had a busy summer and was a bit tired from it.

But today he declared himself fit to start for Liverpool against Chelsea in the UEFA Super Cup.

“Yes, I think I’m ready [to start],” he said to the media according to the team’s official website.

“Tiredness, I think, is here [pointing to his head] – for sure.”

“I’ve been playing professional football a long time [and] I think I never even have holidays more than 20 days [for the last] seven years now,” he added.

“I’m used to it and, for sure, I’m ready. I’m here, so let’s do it.”

“Lucky ground probably and hopefully tomorrow it’s going to be the same,” he continued. “We work for it and we hope,” he commented.

“We’re going to do everything to win and keep [it] continuing to be a lucky ground for Liverpool.”
