Liverpool forward SADIO MANE has lavished praise on his teammate Philippe Coutinho as he has labelled Brazilian star as the world’s best – even if he won’t teach him how to take free-kicks!
Brazil international attacking midfielder has been impressive this campaign despite missing several games following the back injury.
He has found the net for four times and assisted a further five in the English top tier including a stunning free-kick in a 5-1 win over Brighton and Hove Albion.
Senegalese international midfielder claims that Coutinho’s ‘amazing’ skill makes him one of the best players in the world, but Brazilian attacker won’t reveal his secrets.
He said: “Philippe is one of the best players in the world, and his free-kicks are amazing.
“I always try to learn from him, but I think he doesn’t want to teach me!
“He is always practising, and that’s why it’s easy for him to score in the games.”
Meanwhile, Sadio Mane has continued to lavish praise his another teammate Mohamed Salah who has scored 12 Premier League goals already this term and Senegalese forward impressed with the quality of the Reds new signing.
He added: “I am happy for Mo because he is doing well, he is a very important player for us and I’m happy for him to score.
