Mane told liverpoolfc.com: "Yeah, 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.
"Of course you expect all these kind of things, to go to an away ground and get booed, but I think especially for myself and my teammates, this gives us extra motivation. Myself, I love it and I don't care about it. It gives me extra motivation and I can't wait for it.
"Celebrating with your teammates 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."
