Mane secured a switch to Anfield from Southampton in 2016, and has since completed the elite trophy set having lifted the Premier League, FA Cup, Champions League, Club World Cup, Super Cup and League Cup. But Toure had noted Mane’s talent a number of years before his move to Merseyside.
“At that time he was at Southampton, playing there with (Mauricio) Pochettino. He was an unbelievable player and I knew he was going to be a great player, 100 per cent.
“Because the way he moves, the way he plays, he’s so humble. I’ve never seen a striker like it. He’s not selfish, he is not thinking about him, he works for the team.”
