Wijnaldum: Liverpool striker Mane deserves greater media recognition

Georginio Wijnaldum says Liverpool striker Sadio Mane deserves greater recognition from the media.

The Senegal international scored his 18th and 19th goals of the season in the 3-1 win over Bayern Munich which put the Reds into the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

"He is really good. The games tell you that, he is really important with his goals and assists. A good season, his best with us," Wijnaldum said.

"They (media) do not speak about him? I think the other players have shown they get the headlines but Sadio also.

"He has had a big influence on winning games. Mo did not score (against Bayern) but had a good game.

"People speak about the player who had two goals. A lot of players do the work and make the difference.

"You have to speak about everyone. For me, Sadio is up there with those players you named."
