Mane hit the winner against Stoke City.
"He brings something different," Cork told the Daily Echo. "He's a quick winger, he's got good skill, good flair.
"We haven't really got a player like that in our team - Sadio is direct and pacy, but we've got forwards that all bring different qualities and the manager's got a good selection, and a hard selection choice, with four or five different attackers that he can use, and it's a good option for him to have."
