Jamie Carragher’s pep talk motivated my hat-trick ~ Sadio Mane

Liverpool ran a train over Porto in last night’s Champions League thriller and The Reds attacker, Sadio Mane took home the match ball.


Mane revealed he owed his prolifics in front of goal to a pep talk from Jamie Carragher at half-time.

Salah became the 13th Liverpool player to hit 30 goals in a season, while Mane became the fourth player to score a hat-trick in the Champions League for the Reds.

After the match, Mane spoke of his brief chat with Carragher, who was covering the last-16 first leg for Norwegian channel Viasport.

“He’s my good friend,” Daily Mail quoted him as saying.
“At half-time he told me to score more goals. I tried and, as a team, luckily I got three goals today and I’m happy.

“I used to be a left-winger, most of my career I played as a right winger.
“For me, to both sides I can play and play for the team. I will play wherever they ask me to play.”

Liverpool thrashed Porto 5-0 with Mohammed Salah and Roberto Firminho also getting a goal apiece.
