"Messi deserves to win the Ballon D'or"
A Champions League winner and a runner-up at the African Cup of Nations. Apart from finishing second in the Premier League, Mane's season was fantastic, so many people are saying he could win the Ballon D'or.
The Liverpool attacker spoke about this possibility prior to the match against Chelsea in the UEFA Super Cup, another title which Jurgen Klopp's men have a good chance of winning.
Far from being one of the favourites to win, Mane said that in his opinion, Lionel Messi should win it.
"For me, it would not be frustrating if Messi won it because he deserves it. He deserves to win the Ballon D'or. Everyone knows how good he his, you don't need to describe it," Mane said, praising the year he has had at the Catalan giants.
Apart from being a candidate for the Ballon D'or, the Senegalese will be back for Liverpool for the final in Istanbul. A match which could give Liverpool fans another reason to celebrate.
