Liverpool legend, Jamie Carragher has told Sadio Mane that he would personally block him from leaving the club for Bayern Munich and ensure he signs a new deal at Anfield.

Carragher heaped praise on the Senegalese, describing him as his favourite player.

Mane, 2021 Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON winner, scored the winner in a 2-1 victory over Aston Villa to keep the Jurgen Klopp’s Reds’ Premier League title hopes alive.

German Bundesliga side, Bayern Munich, are said to be interested in the Senegal International, with Mane’s contract set to expire in 2023.

“When I have watched Liverpool as a fan, Sadio Mane is my favourite player,” he told Sky Sports.

“There is just something about Mane. He’s sacrificed himself at times and the shift he puts in.

“He, along with Salah, has been doing that for five years – they are never injured!

“What they have done for this football club is unbelievable.

“I’m a huge fan of Sadio Mane and I can assure you he will be going nowhere because I will not let him go to Bayern Munich, he’d have me to deal with!” He added.
