Roberto Firmino, during the summer of 2015, was the first to land at Anfield. Sadio Mané, from Southampton, followed in the Brazilian's footsteps a season later. In the summer of 2017, and with the arrival of Mohamed Salah at Liverpool, the north-west side of England had just completed the creation of one of the most iconic attacking pitchforks in football history.
After 269 games defending the Liverpool jersey and with scoring records made up of 120 goals and 48 assists, Sadio Mané says goodbye to Liverpool fans like a true legend. A key piece in obtaining the last Champions League and the last Premier League raised by the 'red' team, the 41 million euros invested for his signing back in 2016 have been more than amortized.
