Sadio Mane continued his excellent run of form with a goal and two assists against Everton in the Merseyside derby. His tally for the season now stands at 13 goals and seven assists across all competitions. Liverpool enter a busy period in the football calendar that has been congested further by the Club World Cup in Qatar.
Mane, though, believes winning the trophy for the first time in the Reds’ history would more than make up for the heavy schedule.
“I always say to win games and win trophies motivates players all the time,” he said.
“If we can win the Club World Cup then it will give us more momentum.
“Hopefully we are going to win it and give us another blast of high energy to go again for the rest of the season.”
Mane joined Liverpool from Southampton in a £34million deal in the summer of 2016.
In November, the 27-year-old signed a new contract with the club to extend his stay at Anfield until 2023.
He said at the time: “I am very happy, very happy to extend my time at Liverpool.
“It is a great day for me and now I am looking forward to everything – to helping the team, to helping the club achieve our dreams and, especially, to win trophies.
“I’ve always said, when I knew I had a chance to come here I didn’t have to think twice.
“The right club in the right moment and with the right coach as well. I came here and was very happy.”
How much does Sadio Mane earn at Liverpool?

Salah leads the way in the Reds squad on around £200,000 per week, followed by Firmino and centre-back Virgin van Dijk on £180,000.
What is Sadio Mane’s net worth?

His endorsement deals include financial services giant Western Union, Indonesia Tourism and New Balance, his boot sponsors who are also linked with Liverpool.
Before Liverpool’s Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid in 2018, Mane bought 300 of the club’s shirts to be sent to his birthplace.
They were distributed in the Senegalese village of Bambali in the build-up to the final.
