Mane Hails Firmino Work Rate
Liverpool forward Sadio Mane has hailed the extraordinary work rate of Roberto Firmino, acknowledging that many of his goals are due in no small part to the Brazilian’s movement.
“He’s a hard worker and an incredible player,” the Senegalese says on Liverpool’s official 2017-18 end-of-season DVD.
“He can see in his eye and what he’s doing all the time on the pitch, working for the team like a defender and he’s a striker!
“This is special for him and it makes him a very, very, very important player for us.” Mane also says he and Firmino enjoy a good off the field relationship.
“Roberto is someone who likes dancing all the time and he always forces me to dance with him!”
“I try my best but I’m not as good as him! He was talking to me, saying ‘why don’t you dance like we said all the time?!’ and I said: ‘Hey Bobby, I’m shy, I can’t dance like you!’
“He said ‘come on my friend, we have to do it!’ and we enjoy each one, so why not!”
