Idrissa Gueye: This Liverpool star convinced me about Everton

Idrissa Gueye admits Liverpool ace Sadio Mane convinced him about joining Everton.

The midfielder left Aston Villa last summer for Everton.

He told Daily Express: “When I heard Everton wanted me, I was told only but positive things. I spoke to (Liverpool's) Sadio Mane – my rival now – on international duty and he said how good the manager was to play for.

“He will help me make another step up. Together we will cross the line and hit the target.

“For sure it helps that the manager played in my position. But he is also someone who knows what he wants to achieve and where he wants to go."
