The Progress of Sadio Mane in numbers

Updated on March 9, 2017

Senegal-born Liverpool's winger Sadio Mane has become one of the most interesting players to watch in the English Premier League in the past few seasons. Since the arrival from Southampton in the summer of 2016 for a for a transfer fee of £34 million, Mane has become the key player for The Reds. His stats are slowly, but strongly improving season after season.

After having a relatively slow start of his career in France with Ligue 2 side Metz, Sadio Mane moved to the Austrian Bundesliga club Red Bull Salzburg in 2012 and quickly became a star there. It was just a matter of time when the clubs from the top European leagues started to show their interest in the Senegalese winger. In 2014, Mane was transferred to the English side Southampton that is well-known for its youth academy and the great eye for discovering potential stars.

As you can see in the picture above, Mane had a solid debut season in the Premier League, scoring 10 goals in 2014/15. He also managed to leave his mark in the history, after becoming the player, who scored the fastest hat-trick in a Premier League history. It took only 2 minutes and 56 seconds in the season's final home match against the Aston Villa.

In his second and final season with Southampton, Mane slowly improved his stats and impact on The Saints game. He finished the season as a joint top scorer of the team in the Premier League, alongside Italian striker Graziano Pelle. Southampton finished the season sixth in the EPL and Mane moved on to the Liverpool to join the exciting German manager Jurgen Klopp.

Jurgen Klopp is well-known for his work with the youngsters and his teams always show some exciting football that fans really love. Mane turned out to be a great fit for The Reds. Senegalese winger is a hard worker, he doesn't shy away from the helping his defenders and he has some solid pace to offer. He's the type of player that looks well in the high-pressing style of play that Klopp has valued so high.

“The longer we have the ball, the less can happen against you. Then you lose it and you need to get it back, I thought it’s a good idea to get it back immediately because it makes life easier," says Klopp.

You can see that Mane's stats under Jurgen Klopp got even better this season. Of course, he sometimes still lacks consistency and after a great performance the next fixture might disappoint, but numbers anyway give a positive picture for the future. Sane now has a real chance to surpass his previous best single-season scoring numbers in the league (16 goals in the Austrian Bundesliga in 2012/13).

Now Mane & Liverpool are on the mission to secure their place in the TOP 4 in the Premier League to earn their spot in 2017/18 Champions League. No matter how the season gonna end for the Senegalese winger, it's clear that he's having the best season in his career and there gonna be a plenty of clubs in the summer that gonna acquire the Senegalese sensation.
