Liverpool striker Mane admits title defence now OVER

Liverpool striker Sadio Mane has declared their title defence OVER.

Mane, however, has outlined Liverpool 's ambitions to win a seventh European Cup in Istanbul later this year.

He told ESPN Brasil: “First of all, before the end of the season I think, not only me, but every single player in the squad has targets.

"It's the same for the club, Our target from the beginning was [winning] the Champions League, the Premier League and also cup games.

"And now, I can say it's over for the Premier League…it's too much.

“In our head, our self-belief, it's always 'never give up', and we won't give up, but for sure, Manchester City are a good team and they're flying.

“Beyond the top four is now, right now, our main target. But the Champions League, that is our main, main, main target.

"To win it, not be second, but it won't be easy.

“You're going to face the best teams in Europe, but we're here to beat the best in the world.

"We'll do everything possible to go forward and win the Champions League."
