Liverpool striker Mane eager to score in front of full Anfield again

Liverpool striker Sadio Mane is eager to score again in front of a full house at Anfield.

Mane is confident the return of fans will provide Liverpool an extra boost in several ways - not least after scoring a goal.

"For sure, you need the fans (to celebrate properly)!" he said. "You need those people.

"Celebrating with your team-mates is not enough, I think you need to celebrate with the fans.

"It's always special to score goals in front of the fans, celebrate with them and see the way they celebrate. I think sometimes they enjoy it more than yourself!

"So this gives you... I can't explain it... it gives you extra motivation and an extra boost to go again for them and for the team."

Mane added: "Like I always said, football without fans, I think it's not football. Obviously last year, to be honest we missed our fans a lot and honestly I think this season is going to be a different season.

"Especially because fans are back in the stadium and of course, we have the best fans in the world.

"I can say they played a big, big part in our success so having them back I think is another bonus for us, for sure. I can't wait for it."
