Sadio Mane has said that he will work harder to be a better player in the 2020-21 season after winning the PFA Fans’ Player of the Year award.
The Senegalese international was named Premier League PFA Fans’ Player of the Year award for 2019-20 on Monday.
The Liverpool forward beat off competition from teammate Trent Alexander-Arnold and Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne.
“In part of football it’s no secret, you just need to push yourself always and try to work harder than you did before,” Mane told the club website.
“I was really happy and I want to say thank you to all the fans around the world who voted for me.
“It has been an amazing season for me and my teammates and I’m really happy and really honoured to win this.
“The only thing I have to say, I want to say again, thank you. There has been so many amazing players who made a great season but they voted for me.
“I just want to say thank you again and I will push myself harder to be a better player.”
Mane played a key role in helping Liverpool end their 30-year wait for a top-flight title in the 2019-20 campaign with a contribution for 18 goals and seven assists.
The 28-year-old revealed the personal goals he’s achieved with the Reds and how the PFA award will motivate him for the upcoming season.
