- The winger reveals it means a lot to him and expresses gratitude to fans, teammates and the manager for the support.
- The Senegal international admits the Reds were not at their best lately, however, stresses they will give it all to win on Saturday and to claim a trophy this year.
If nothing unexpected happens, Sadio Mane will record his 100th game for Liverpool on Saturday against Brighton. The Senegalese has managed to score 42 goals in his 99 appearances so far and is looking forward to the century, which is extremely important for the winger as he has revealed to Premier League Productions:
"Of course, it means a lot to me. To play at a club like Liverpool is something incredible. I always said I am very happy to play for this club.
"Every single day I enjoy being here and I’m looking forward to playing my 100th game. It will mean a lot.
"Thank you to everybody - the club, the fans and the coach for the trust. I will try to do everything with my teammates to win something for this club."
"When I was little my parents thought playing football was a waste of time and I'd never succeed. I told them, "this is the only job that will enable me to help you."— Betin (@BetinKenya) January 11, 2019

Liverpool are currently on a 2-game losing streak, as the Reds lost 2-1 to Man City in the league and were eliminated by the Wolves from the FA Cup with the same figures on the scoresheet. On Saturday, Jurgen Klopp's men will be looking for kind of redemption at Brighton and Sadio hardly shows any uncertainty ahead of the game:
"The manager is very, very positive. He has a lot of experience and he knows in football [defeats] can happen. The reaction is the most important thing. Everybody is more focused and knows what it would mean for us to win on Saturday.
"We know it will not be easy but we have quality and we’re going to try to do everything to win the game."
