Liverpool striker Mane lauds 'animal' Firmino

Sadio Mane has lauded Liverpool teammate Roberto Firmino.

The Senegal international has scored four goals this season. But he reserved special praise for Firmino, who he believes shouldn't be overlooked for his contribution.

"Lots of people like to talk about me and (Mo) Salah," Mane told Bleacher Report.

"It's nice to hear those things, but the strength of this Liverpool team is the collective.

"You also can't forget that there's a guy up front called Firmino who works like an animal for us and makes things easier.

"And the guys behind us do some extraordinary work. We try to benefit from that and help the team go forward."
