Watford winger Sarr: Liverpool star Mane always in touch

Watford winger Ismaila Sarr has paid tribute to Senegal teammate Sadio Mane.

Mane's Liverpool will meet Watford in the early kickoff on Saturday.

"Sadio is talking to me all the time. He advises me to 'do this, do that'. He is a big brother for me," said Sarr to BBC Sport.

"When I arrived, he sent messages saying welcome to the Premier League, welcome to England and we also talk when we are in the national team.

"He gives me tips, I try to execute them and to implement them. 'If you don't play, be calm, carry on, do your job, it will be OK', that is what he says. So I try to do the same.

"If I do not play, no problem. I come and work on the following day."

He added: "I think the match will be like any other. We are going to work. We are going there to fight. We are not going there just to watch Sadio play - we will also have to play.

"I have to show I understood the advice I was given by him. At the end of the match he can give me some more tips."
