Player profile

Mané was picked up from a football academy in Senegal by French side Metz and was a regular in the second half of the 2011/12 season but couldn't help his side avoid relegation. He was transferred for 4 million Euros to Red Bull Salzburg where he became a prolific scorer, averaging a goal every other game and winning a domestic double in 2013/14. An £11.8million move to Southampton followed and he scored ten goals from 32 appearances in all competitions, including the Premier League's fastest hat-trick in a 6-1 win over Aston Villa on 18 May 2015. His 176 second treble beat Robbie Fowler's record set in 1994, which stood at 276 seconds.

In 2015/16 Mané endured a barren spell of four months without a goal but this was ended with two against Liverpool as the Saints came from 2-0 down to win 3-2 on 20 March 2016. He went on to finish the season as their leading scorer and when Liverpool paid £30 million for him, he became the most expensive African footballer in history. In his first interview with LFCTV he said it was the right moment, the right coach and the right club for him.
